The Department of Homeland Security would receive $38.2 billion in non-disaster funding under President Obama’s budget proposal, which would reduce spending for the organization by nearly 3 percent compared to the 2014 enacted level but roughly the same as it was in 2013.

Obama’s fiscal plan calls for 4,000 additional Customs and Border Protection officers, as well as $549 million to protect federal computer networks from cybersecurity threats,  $1 billion in assistance to state and local governments for firefighters and emergency-management personnel and $10 million to help immigrants on the path to citizenship.

The budget blueprint also calls for $6.8 billion in disaster-relief funding, $3 billion for “major asset acquisitions” that would include a new Coast Guard cutter and $124 million to expand and bolster the government’s E-Verify system that allows employers to confirm the employment eligibility of job seekers.

The White House has estimated that the Transportation Security Administration could save $100 million next year with increased use of its Pre-Check program, which allows expedited screening for low-risk travelers. The Obama administration wants to invest those savings in other areas of Homeland Security.

More than 35 percent of the traveling public currently use the Pre-Check program, according to the White House.
