This hearing will focus on the spending priorities outlined in the President's Fiscal Year 2012 budget for the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE), which includes the reorganization of the former Minerals Management Service (MMS). This hearing will provide an opportunity for BOEMRE Director Michael Bromwich to expand upon the mission and spending priorities of the Bureau and the many issues affecting federal offshore oil and gas exploration and development. BOEMRE’s Fiscal Year 2012 budget request is $358.4 million, an increase of $119.3 million over the Fiscal Year 2010 enacted budget after adjusting for funds transferred to the Office of the Secretary as part of the ongoing reorganization of the former MMS.
