Intelligence Authorization Act for 2014. H.R. 113-227. November 25, 2013.--Committed to the Committee of the Whole House on the State of the Union and ordered to be printed Mr. Rogers of Michigan, from the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, submitted the following. HR 113-227
REPORT together with MINORITY VIEWS [To accompany H.R. 3381] [Including cost estimate of the Congressional Budget Office] The Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, to whom was referred the bill (H.R. 3381) to authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2014 for intelligence and intelligence-related activities of the United States Government, the Community Management Account, and the Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and Disability System, and for other purposes, having considered the same, report favorably thereon with an amendment and recommend that the bill as amended do pass...
H.R. 3381 would authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2014 for intelligence activities of the U.S. government. CBO does not provide estimates for classified programs; thus, this estimate addresses only the unclassified aspects of the bill. On that limited basis, and assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts, CBO estimates that implementing the unclassified provisions of H.R. 3381 would cost $595 million over the 2014-2018 period. Pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply to thislegislation because enacting it would not affect direct spending or revenues. Section 104 would authorize the appropriation of $601 million for the Intelligence
Community Management Account, which provides the principal source of funding for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and resources for
coordinating programs, overseeing budgets, and managing the intelligence agencies. Based on historical patterns, CBO estimates that implementing this section wouldcost about $400 million in 2014 and $595 million over the 2014-2018 period, assuming the appropriation of the authorized amount. Section 201 would authorize the
appropriation of $514 million for the Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and Disability System, which is a retirement and disability program for certain employees of the Central Intelligence Agency. The appropriation would cover various unfunded liabilities of the system and would be considered mandatory. However,
because the authorization is the same as the amount assumed in the CBO baseline, CBO does not ascribe any additional cost to that provision relative to the
