784 OPENING REMARKSSERGEANT


AT

ARMS

Mr. ALEXANDER. Thank you. Mr. Irving. Mr. IRVING. Good morning, Mr. Chairman, Ranking Member Wasserman Schultz, and members of the committee. I appreciate the opportunity to appear before you today to present the Sergeant at Arms request for fiscal year 2014. Before I begin, I would like to say that as Sergeant at Arms, it is indeed a unique privilege and honor for me to serve this institution, and I look forward to working with you and members of the committee. In the current fiscal environment, our office is acutely aware of the need to operate within tight fiscal boundaries. Our request has been crafted in the spirit of zero-based budgeting, where each division identified cost savings without jeopardizing the mission critical services provided to the House community.
113TH CONGRESSIONAL TRANSITION ACTIVITIES

My full testimony, which I have submitted for the record, contains my fiscal year 2014 budget request. In terms of ongoing efforts and initiatives, every division in the office of the Sergeant at Arms was recently involved in the transition to the 113th Congress. This includes the distribution of new Member identification pins and license plates, processing of approximately 14,000 congressional identification badges, and issuing over 7,000 parking permits to all authorized vehicles.
113TH CONGRESS HOUSE SECURITY ACTIVITIES

Furthermore, the employees of the Sergeant at Arms have supported, reviewed, and approved the security procedures for numerous special events, including the opening session of the 113th Congress, joint session of the Electoral College, the 57th Presidential Inauguration, and the annual State of the Union Address by the President. Support was also provided off-site to several issues retreats and the National Prayer Breakfast. Planning is currently underway for the annual Peace Officers Memorial Service and upcoming events on the west front lawn of the campus. In closing, I would like to thank the committee again for their support and the privilege of appearing today. I assure you of my commitment and that of my entire office to provide the highest quality support for the House of Representatives, while maintaining the safest and securest environment possible. We will remain focused on security and preparedness, while maintaining the level of fiscal responsibility demanded by the House of Representatives. I will continue to keep the committee informed of my activities, and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Thank you. [The prepared statement of Mr. Irving follows:]
