President Signs DHS Spending Bill Into Law
today, the President signed into law the fiscal year 2007 spending bill for the
Department of Homeland Security (H.R. 5441). To view a copy of the President’s
statement on the bill click
As we have previously reported, the legislation, which
funds the Transportation Security Administration and all other parts of the
department, includes $388 million for
EDS installation – a figure that is $44 million above the President’s request
and $93 million more than was approved last year for that purpose. The bill also maintains the 45,000 cap
on TSA screeners and rejects the Administration-backed proposal to increase the
$2.50 passenger security fee.
