Makes sense that this would come eventually. Information is the most valuable weapon in military conflicts. USA, China, Russia, and India have demonstrated the ability to shoot down a satellite in space. This would only be the beginning. Several months has ago I heard about an Intelligence report according to which China is expected to have a fully functional "space laser" capable of launching orbital strikes during the coming decade.

Space is the new frontier for military conflict, so this spending is unsurprising, if not desirable.

Actually the offensive lasers are supposed to be terrestrial, my apologies. It is defensive capabilities that are becoming orbital, with "repair satellites."

You can safely bet that if/when a major conflict comes between any of the major players then satellites will be used both offensively and defensively. It makes sense for America to have a department dedicated toward preparing for such scenarios. (I can't speak to the amount of money or whether or not an existing department could've handled this though).
