The President’s FY 2006 budget request includes a total of $41.1 billion for the Department of Homeland Security. This is an increase in total budgetary authority of 7 percent over the enacted FY 2005 funding, excluding Project BioShield, and clearly demonstrates the Administration’s continued commitment to making further improvements in the nation’s homeland security. Among the operating entities with significant budgetary increases are Immigration and Customs Enforcement (a 13.5 percent increase) and the U.S. Coast Guard (an increase of more than 9 percent, adjusting for transferred programs). The budget also streamlines screening programs, increasing resources for these activities under a new screening office by 68 percent.
