The Congressional Budget OfficeÂ estimates it would cost the federal government approximately $521 million over five years to implement unclassified programsÂ under the House’sÂ Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017.
CBOÂ said WednesdayÂ 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 allocateÂ almostÂ $519 millionÂ for theÂ Intelligence Community Management Account for the next fiscal year,Â about $10 million for theÂ Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board and another $514 million for theÂ Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and Disability System.
An Intelligence Authorization Act provisionÂ seeks to prohibitÂ the Defense Intelligence AgencyÂ from paying living quarters allowanceÂ to DIAÂ personnelÂ assigned to aÂ combatant command’s directorate thatÂ operate outside the U.S.
Another provision states thatÂ personnelÂ 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.
