The Congressional Budget Office estimates it would cost the federal government approximately $521 million over five years to implement unclassified programs under the House’s Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017.
CBO said Wednesday the bill, if enacted, will also have an impact on direct spending and revenues but will not impose costs on state, local or tribal governments.
The bill would allocate almost $519 million for the Intelligence Community Management Account for the next fiscal year, about $10 million for the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board and another $514 million for the Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and Disability System.
An Intelligence Authorization Act provision seeks to prohibit the Defense Intelligence Agency from paying living quarters allowance to DIA personnel assigned to a combatant command’s directorate that operate outside the U.S.
Another provision states that personnel who perform certain investigative functions should be considered by the CIA Inspector General as law enforcement officers for compensation and retirement purposes.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-California) introduced the bill.
