This report describes the FY2014 appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The Administration requested $39.0 billion in adjusted net discretionary budget authority for DHS for FY2014, as part of an overall budget of $60.0 billion (including fees, trust funds, and other funding that is not appropriated or does not score against the budget caps).
Net requested appropriations for major agencies within DHS were as follows:
- Customs and Border Protection (CBP), $10,833 million;
- Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), $4,997 million;
- Transportation Security Administration (TSA), $4,857 million;
- Coast Guard, $8,051 million;
- Secret Service, $1,546 million;
- National Protection and Programs Directorate, $1,267 million;
- Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA), $3,984 million;
- Science and Technology, $1,527 million; and
- the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office, $1,527 million.
H.R. 2217, the House-passed DHS appropriations bill, would provide $39.0 billion in adjusted net discretionary budget authority. The Senate-reported version of the same bill would provide $39.1 billion in adjusted net discretionary budget authority. Both bills would also provide the $5.6 billion in disaster relief requested by the Administration.
Late on September 30, 2013, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) gave notice to federal agencies, including DHS, that an emergency shutdown furlough would be put in place as a result of the failure to enact appropriations legislation for FY2014. More than 31,000 DHS employees were furloughed, and tens of thousands of others that were excepted from furlough and whose salaries were paid through annual appropriations worked without timely pay.
This report will not be updated further until a final resolution of FY2014 annual appropriations for DHS is achieved.
