RSVP for this Event
Created in 2002, the Department of Homeland Security remains one of the most troubled entities within the federal government. Surveys of federal employees indicate that the Department rates last among major units of the government on a wide range of indices. The Department’s gross mismanagement of the federal response to Hurricane Katrina was just the first item in a long list of disturbing ineptitude and misuse of public funds involving various agencies within the Department. Congressman David Price (D-NC), Chairman of the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, will discuss how the next administration should deal with this struggling piece of the federal bureaucracy during an upcoming presentation at the Center for American Progress Action Fund. Representative Price will have recently completed marking up the fiscal year 2009 appropriation for the Department and is expected to share his insights into the major issues contained in the bill, as well as steps the next administration should take to restructure and reform this troubled department.
