Bush signs $30 billion DHS spending bill

The bill includes $30.8 billion in net discretionary spending—a $2.4 billion, or 4.7 percent, increase by the administration’s method of counting—and many features Congress added that departed from the administration’s original budget request.

The department's technology spending level of about $6 billion contains large technology initiatives such as major programs for a centralized financial management system, consolidated networks, new technology under the U.S. Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology program and likely upgrades to border IT under the Americas Shield Initiative.
