February 21, 2013

WASHINGTON — U.S. Senator Mary L. Landrieu, D-La., will continue as chair of the Senate Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee. This key subcommittee is responsible for the funding and oversight of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its sub-agencies, including the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection. It also oversees the budget for the Coast Guard.

In addition, Sen. Landrieu will serve on the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, which provides oversight and funding for the Department of Defense to ensure we meet our security and defense needs, including the necessary training to ensure our troops are battle ready. She will also serve on the Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee.

"During the last two years, my subcommittee and the Department of Homeland Security have made significant progress, including improving federal disaster funding and response, supporting the Coast Guard and strengthening our border security. I am proud of the work we have done, but we must remain focused on protecting our nation from foreign, domestic and cyber threats. I am also focused on making our air travel system as convenient and efficient as possible, while maintaining the highest level of security," Sen. Landrieu said. "It is the job of DHS to protect our citizens from any threat, whether it comes by air, land, sea or over the Internet. This subcommittee will continue to provide the necessary oversight and funding to ensure this mission is achieved."

As chair of the Senate Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, Sen. Landrieu has:
