Sanitized Copy Approved for Release 2011/08/09: CIA-RDP05CO1629R000300570004-9 The bill would: (1) Authorize appropriations for fiscal year 1986 for (a) the intelligence and intelligence-related activities of the U.S. Gov- ernment, (b) the Intelligence Community Staff and (c) the Cen- tral Intelligence Agency Retirement and Disability system; (2) Authorize the personnel ceilings on September 30, 1986 for the intelligence and intelligence-related activities of the U.S. Government; (3) Permit the Director of Central Intelligence to authorize personnel ceilings in fiscal year 1986 for any intelligence ele- ments up to 2 percent above the authorized levels; (4) Prohibit the use of any funds available to any agency in- volved in intelligence activities for military or paramilitary op- erations in Nicaragua; .51 _W6 O Sanitized Copy Approved for Release 2011/08/09: CIA-RDP05CO1629R000300570004-9 5 guan democratic resistance including arms, ammunition, or other equipment or material which could be used to in- flict serious bodily harm or death, or which would have the effect of providing arms, ammunition or other weapons of war for military or paramilitary operations in Nicara- gua by any group, organization, movement or individual.

' SECTION-BY-SECTION ANALYSIS TITLE I-INTELLIGENCE AND INTELLIGENCE-RELATED ACTIVITIES Section 101 lists the departments and agencies for whose intelli- gence and intelligence-related activities the bill authorizes appro- priations for fiscal year 1986. Section 102 makes clear that, with the exception of sections 103 and 105, details of the committee's recommendations with respect to the amounts authorized to be appropriated for intelligence and intelligence-related activities and personnel ceilings covered under this title for fiscal year 1986 are contained in a classified schedule of authorizations to the bill and the classified annex to this report. The schedule of authorizations is incorporated into H.R. 2419 by this section. Section 103 authorizes appropriations of $15,200,000 for the coun- terterrorism program of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Section 104 permits the Director of Central Intelligence to au- thorize the personnel strength of any intelligence element to exceed the fiscal year 1986 authorized personnel levels by no more than 2 percent if he determines that doing so is necessary for the performance of important intelligence functions. The Director must notify the two intelligence committees promptly of any exercise of authority under the section. It is to be emphasized that the authority conveyed, by this section is not intended to permit the wholesale raisin of strength in each or any intelligence com g personnel provides the Director of Central Intelligencenwithaflexibilit to ad just personnel end strength temporarily for contingencies and for overages caused by an inbalance between hiring of new employees and attrition of current emloyees for retirement, resignation, etc. The committee does not expect the Director of Central Intelligence to allow heads of intelligence components to plan to exceed person- nel levels set in the schedule of authorizations except for the satis- faction of clearly identified hiring needs which are consistent with the authorization of personnel strengths in this bill. In no case is this authority to be used to provide for positions denied by this bill. As introduced,' Ofttion 106 'would have prohibited any funds available to any agency involved in intelligence activities being used to sup support, directly or indirectly, military or paramilitary op- erations The section also had the effect of denying any funds requested for such a purpose in fiscal year 1986. It would Sanitized Copy Approved for Release 2011/08/09: CIA-RDP05CO1629R000300570004-9 Sanitized Copy Approved for Release 2011/08/09: CIA-RDP05CO1629R000300570004-9 extend the current statutory prohibition for support to the Nicara- guan "contras" through the end of FY 1986. An amendment was adopted by the committee to strike the origi- nal language of Section 105 so as to make clear that the prohibi- tion that applies to supporting Nicaraguan insurgents or "contras" applies only to the provision of funds, goods, equipment, civilian or military supplies, or any other materiel, but does not include the provision of intelligence information or advice to the contras. TITLE II-INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY STAFF (ICS) Section 201 authorizes the appropriation of $21,900,000 for the Intelligence Community Staff [ICS], which provides the Director of Central Intelligence [DCI] with staff assistance to carry out his in- telligence community responsibilities. The Staff supports the DCI in the execution of his responsibilities to develop, review, and ap- prove the National Foreign Intelligence Program budget, to evalu- ate the performance of foreign intelligence activities, and to devel- op issues, goals, and other required guidance for the intelligence community. Sections 202 and 203 provide certain administrative authorities for the Intelligence Community Staff. Section 202(a) authorizes 233 full-time personnel for the staff as of September 30, 1986. The In- telligence Community Staff is composed of a permanent cadre, de- tailed community personnel, and contract hirees. The Intelligence Community Staff is now made up of personnel who are permanent employees of the Staff and other who are de- tailed for several years from various intelligence elements. The purpose of section 202(b) is to authorize this staff approach and to require that detailed employees represent all appropriate elements of the Government, including those engaged in intelligence-related activities. Section 202(c) requires that personnel be detailed on a reimbursa- ble basis except for temporary situations. The Staff's authorized size, in the opinion of the committee, is sufficient for the duties which the Staff performs. This provision is intended to insure that its ranks are not swelled by detailees, the personnel costs for whom are not reimbursed to their parent agency. Section 203 provides the Director of Central Intelligence with au- thority to manage the activities and to pay the personnel of the In- telligence Community Staff because the Staff is not otherwise au- thorized by law. However, it is the committee's intent that in the case of detailed personnel, the DCI's authority to discharge person- nel shall only extend to discharging detailed personnel from service at the Intelligence Community Staff and not from Federal em- ployent or militarty service. TITLE III-CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY RETIREMENT AND DISABILITY SYSTEM Section 301 authorizes appropriations for the Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and Disability System (CIARDS) in the amount of $101,400,000 for fiscal year 1986.

But such an explanation would be excessively revealing. Moreover, the committee recognizes that intelligence is inher- ently secret, and any disclosure is the beginning of an erosive process. In some cases, the mere awareness of an intelligence activity can easily reduce or eliminate Its effectiveness, may en- danger lives, and may lead to the col- lection of false information contrived by our adversaries to confuse or mis- lead us. Madam Chairman, I would like to summarize briefly the organization of this bill. Title I provides for the bulk of our intelligence and intelligence-related activities. As I said earlier, funds and program details are in the classified schedule of authorizations and the annex to the report. One exception is the authorization for the Domestic Counterterrorism Program of the FBI, which Is unclassified. The bill provides $15.2 million for this function. Title II provides necessary authori- ties for the Intelligence community staff, whose function is to assist the Director of Central Intelligence with his responsibilities for overall coordi- nation of intelligence and preparation of the budget. The staff is made up of representatives of all -elements of the intelligence community. Administra- tively, it is treated as though it were part of the CIA. The bill provides $21.9 million for this purpose. An amendment will be offered reducing this amount to $21 million. Title III provides authorization of $101.4 million for the Central Intelli- gence Agency Retirement and Disabil- ity System. This Is a program estab- lished by Congress in 1964 to provide for those CIA personnel who perform hazardous duties or are in special situ- ations. usually abroad, which may limit the length of their careers. The bill incorrectly states that the amount authorized Is for fiscal year 1985. A technical amendment will correct this to read fiscal year 1986. As Chairman HAMILTON has stated, title IV provides in section 401 that the Congress must be notified before intelligence funds are obligated or ex- pended for a purpose other than that originally authorized. Section 401 also requires notification if defense activi- ties or services exceeding $1 million in value are to be transferred in conjunc- tion with an intelligence activity. Sec- tion 402 requires a report from the Di- rector of Central Intelligence of the vulnerability of our confidential activi- ties abroad. Title V provides that this bill does not authorize intelligence activities not otherwise authorized by the laws and Constitution of the United States. It also provides authorization for ap- propriations to pay for Increased pay or benefits to Federal employees if they are enacted in other legislation. Madam Chairman, as in the last fiscal year, this bill authorizes less than the administration requested. Some specific proposals have been rec- ommended for deferral, others for ter- mination, while a few have been in- creased. I believe that the authoriza- tion provided is adequate to meet the country's needs. Madam Chairman let me close by stating that, as In year's past, the com- mittee has made, and continues to make, the classified annex to It's report available to all Members of the House during business hours in the committee's rooms. I would invite Members who have not yet had an op- portunity to do so to read this annex. 01130 Mr. STUMP. Madam Chairman, I yield myself such time as I may con- sume. (Mr. STUMP asked and was given permission to revise and extend his re- marks.) Mr. STUMP. Madam Chairman, I rise in support of H.R. 2419, the Intel- ligence Authorization Act, with the committee amendments printed in the bill and the committee freeze-type amendment printed In the CONGRxs- sloNAL Rscoan of Tuesday. July 16. The funding authorizations con- tained in this bill for intelligence and intelligence-related activities ensure that U.S. policymakers will continue to have the capability to collect needed intelligence on foreign powers, to detect and counter hostile activities by foreign powers. and to influence world events. Because the effectiveness of intelli- gence programs depends in part upon their secrecy. the details of intelli- gence programs and the associated funding levels must remain concealed. Consequently, I will not discuss the details of the committee's recommen- dations. Those details are in the classi- fied schedule of authorizations and classified' annex to the committee's report, which have been available for since June 3, 1986. I believe that H.R. 2419 represen intelligence agencies from providing material assistance to the resistance.

This has been my 1st year to serve on the Intelligence Com- mittee, and I must say I found it a fas- cinating experience In part because of the spirit of bipartisanship that was mentioned previously by the chair- man. It has been a privilege to serve with the gentleman from Arizona [Mr. Scum'], the ranking Republican, and the gentleman from Indiana [Mr. HAHILTox]. the chairman o2 the full committee, and the gentleman from Ohio [Mr. SToxas]. who chaired the Budget Subcommittee. I think it is extremely important for the House and for the committee to seek bipartisan efforts and conclusions with respect to the intelligence pro- gram and I was indeed pleased that we were able to achieve that this year.

Madam Chairman, I yield such time as he may consume to the gentleman from Illinois [Mr. HYDE]. (Mr. HYDE asked and was given per- mission to revise and extend his re- marks.) Mr. HYDE. I wonder if I might ask the chairman, the gentleman from In- diana [Mr. HAMILTON], one question. First of all. I want to identify with ev- erything that the gentleman from Ari- zona [Mr. Sruwi ] has said and what the gentleman from Wyoming (Mr. CIIENXY] has said, complimenting the committee on its excellent leadership and the effort to attain bipartisan con- sensus, which most often we do. With reference to section 105, is it the gentleman's understanding that that section does not conflict in any way with the McCurdy-Michel- McDade amendment which we adopt- ed in this Chamber on previous legisla- tion? Mr. HAMILTON. Yes. basically that is my understanding., that there Is no conflict. But let me respond in more detail. The Michel amendment appropriates $27 million in 2 fiscal years tributed by an Uoverameni other than the Central ncy or e IOr numan.ts.ri n aid in Lb ( nfro Section 105 of this bill nrohthitii n>L MUMAgence agency from providing asp oea not as a gentleman from jo- orr a vice to the Contra& ow, Ie M chel amendment would not have restricted or does not restrict the use of the State Department in distributing aid to the Contras. Sec- tion 105 does prohibit the State De- partment from being the agency for that purpose. Other than that, there is no conflict or difference between the two provi- sions, and I think that difference is a minor one. Mr. HYDE- I thank the chairman very much for that explanation. Mr. STUMP. Madam Chairman. I yield 2 minutes to the gentleman from Louisiana [Mr. LIVINGSTON]. (Mr. LIVINGSTON asked and was given permission to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. LIVINGSTON.

The commit- tee amendment to section 105, which is printed in the bill. more narrowly tailors the prohibition to the concerns some in the Congress have expressed in the past about U.S. policy toward Nicaragua and the armed democratic resistance in that country. Also, the committee amendment to section 105 was crafted so that it does not inter- fere with use of the U.S. Armed Forces consistent with the War Powers Reso- lution to protect U.S. citizens. or U.S. efforts to fulfill collective security treaty obligations.

The committee's reductions and the reasons for them are fully explained in the classified annex to the commit- tee's report. That classified annex is available In the offices of the commit- tee for review by any Member of the House. In structuring the amendment before us, the committee wished to es- tablish the principle that spending for intelligence programs should be frozen at the fiscal year 1985 appropriation level, or the authorization level for fiscal year 1986 for the departments or agencies within whose budgets intelli- gence funds are located. Ninety-eight percent of the moneys authorized by this intelligence bill are ponta,ined within the Department of Defense authorization. Nearly all of them are hidden to various authoriza- tion categories for security purposes. They are, in effect, subelements of the Defense budget, even though they are separately authorized by the intelli- gence bill and reviewed by the Intedii- gence Committee. Therefore, these Intelligence pro- grams were among those which were affected by the Aspin freeze amend- ment adopted by the House to the De- fense authorisation bill Now, somne tn- telligence programs-like some De- fense programs within those large au- thorization categories-will experience real growth In fiscal year 1986. An ex- ample would be the stratesk defrme initiative which. despite significant cuts by both House and Senate, still exceeds the fiscal year 1985 approprta Lion level by 80 percent. First, this amendment says that no intelligence program may exceed a level which would have the effect of making the oomblnation of Intelii- gence and na^.nehrigenoe programs exceed the level set by the Aspin amendment. This approach Is, the es- sence, I believe, of the Aspire amend- ment, which was to Ymit the total amount of Defense expenditures to fiscal year 1985. My amendment will ensure the intelligence authorization figures will not result In esoeedIng that fiscal year 1g85 .spending cap. Second. this amendment provides that In the case of cuts to the Defense budget that are, in NLect, unalioc0ed, such as those affecting operations and maintenance, whatever allocable share is eventually determined to apply to intelligence programs will be auto- matically taken from those programs. The amendment ensures, in effect, an automatic adjustment of the relevant spending accounts to take account for those across-the4xm" unallocated cuts that were made to the Defense bill This amendment will not require re- ductions In all intelligence program & It will only require reductions where without them defense categories 'would exceed the Aspin freeze levels or where the intelligence budget's share of defense cuts can be allocated. There will be some real growth In many intelligence programs. That, however, is a function of both the committee's and the administration's belief that these subelemeats of the Defense budget are important and de- serve priority. The committee has not given the administration all that it sought. As I indicated earlier, we have made some significant cuts in many intelli- gence programs, but we believe that the total package of intelligence rec- ommendations, combined with the effect of this amendment, results in an intelligence budget that support essen- tial InteHfgenoe functions at defensible spending levels. I urge the adoption of the amendment. Madam Chairman. I yield to the gentleman from Arisona [Mr. 8rvmhrl. Mr. STUMP. I thank the gentleman for yiekInc Madam Chairman, I rise in support of the committee amendment offered by the gentleman from Indiana. The amendment will make absolute- ly dear on the taco of. the bill that the bill will not break any overall budget ceIIhags ,which may be established by the DOD Authorization Act, in which 96 peroemt of intelligence funds are contained. I emphasize to my colleagues on both aides of the aisle that this amendment does not preempt or over- ride any autherbat ion decisions which have been---or will be-made on other awrthorhetion bIQs. The amendment simply er cures that authorization decisions made in ttdB bill for intelligence prvgramn of the variom Government department and agencies will be fully consistent with decisions on the - overdi budget of these departments and agencies made In other suthorfzation bIBS, such as the DOD AuthartEstion Act.
