Background:

The Subcommittee will hold an oversight hearing on the spending priorities for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), the Office of Insular Affairs (OIA), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and the President's Fiscal Year 2014 budget requests for these agencies. The Obama Administration has requested that $1.55 billion be allocated to the Fish and Wildlife Service for Fiscal Year 2014, $94 million more than what was appropriated in Fiscal Year 2013. The FWS has indicated that its Fiscal Year 2014 budget submission includes a number of "tough choices." Yet, a close examination of their requests finds that only the construction account would receive less money in the upcoming fiscal year.
