NEW YORK — A top Justice Department official on Saturday said the outlook is bleak for U.S. Attorneys looking to have more funds at their disposal in the next fiscal year.

Director H. Marshall Jarrett of the Executive Office for United States Attorneys told members of the National Association of Former U.S. Attorneys that DOJ officials anticipate “very, very tight times” when President Barack Obama releases his proposed budget for fiscal 2012 in the coming months.

“The budget picture looks very, very tight and very austere, and depending on how the election turns out, [it] can even get worse or more austere,” Jarrett said, who appeared to hint at the potential effect of a Republican majority in the House or Senate.

U.S. Attorneys currently have $1.9 billion in funds under the fiscal 2010 budget. The DOJ requested $2 billion for fiscal 2011.

Congress has yet to pass the bill that includes the DOJ budget for fiscal 2011, which began this month. The legislative branch in September approved a continuing resolution that keeps the government running under the fiscal 2010 budget.
