President Barack Obama signed into law today legislation to fund the Justice Department for fiscal year 2010.

The $28 billion DOJ budget is part of the Commerce, Justice, science appropriations bill, which was packaged with five other fiscal year 2010 spending bills to make the Consolidated Appropriations Act 2010.

The Senate approved the $447 billion omnibus bill by a 57-35 vote last Sunday. The legislation cleared the House by a 221-202 vote last Thursday.

Obama requested $27 billion for DOJ. The department’s funding is up $2 billion from fiscal year 2009, when it received $26 billion.
