Title Proposed Homeland Security Budget for 2013.
Publication Date Sep 2012
Media Count 25p

Abstract The Homeland Security Act of 2002, which established the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), requires the Administration to identify and report on homeland security funding and activities of all federal agencies. For that purpose, the law defines homeland security as those activities that detect, deter, protect against, and respond to terrorist acts occurring within the United States and its territories. Those activities include counterterrorism efforts, the protection of civilians and critical infrastructure and assets, and emergency preparedness and response. They are carried out by numerous federal agencies and include many, but not all, of DHSs responsibilities. Since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the federal government has spent more than half a trillion dollars on homeland security.
