6 percent increase for HSD

From Washinton Technology:

The House Appropriations Committee’s Homeland Security Subcommittee has approved a 6 percent increase for the Homeland Security Department in fiscal 2009 — $2.3 billion more than the Bush administration requested, said the committee’s chairman, Rep. David Price (D-N.C.)....Discretionary spending totals $39.9 billion in the bill. The Coast Guard’s Deepwater asset modernization program would get $933 million, about $57 million less than requested.
