Congressional Research Service Memorandum

TO:

March 25, 2003

FROM:

Bart Elias * Specialist in Aviation Safety, Security, and Technology Resources, Science, and Industry Division Budget History of Aviation Security Programs

SUBJECT:

This memorandum is in response to your request for information regarding the budget history of federal aviation security programs for the FAA and TSA from 1990 to present. I have enclosed a table summarizing the President's budget request, Congressional recommendations, and appropriations for civil aviation security for this time span. This function was transferred from the FAA to the TSA in FY 2002. Complete data was located for FY 1996 to the present. Only partial data was available prior to FY 1996 and no information regarding aviation security funding was found prior to FY 1992 using available sources including the Legislative Information System (LIS), the Congressional Record, and the President's Budget documents. This information may exist in other sources that were not available for this search. The other portions of your request for background information, CRS products concerning selected aviation security legislation, and the legal proceedings of United States v. Ramzi Ahmed Yousef, et al. are being handled by other divisions within CRS. Please note that I will be on leave from March 25 through April 9. In my absence, please contact Glennon Harrison at 7-7783 for further assistance. You can contact me at 77771 and I will be happy to assist you further when I return.
