Statement of Commissioner Scott O’Malia Regarding H.R. 3547, the Fiscal Year 2014 Omnibus Appropriations Act

January 14, 2014

I appreciate Congressional efforts to provide the Commission with an appropriation of $215 million, a modest increase in Commission spending levels. It is quite clear from this funding level that the Commission will need to pick its funding priorities carefully.  I look forward to working with my fellow Commissioners to develop a responsible spending plan that enables the Commission to conduct its enhanced oversight mission under Dodd-Frank, improve its technology utilization for surveillance purposes, and prevent furloughs of agency staff.
