- Cost Estimate
As ordered reported by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence
on July 25, 2012
The bill would authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2013 for intelligence activities of the U.S. government. Since CBO does not provide estimates for classified programs, this estimate addresses only the unclassified portions of the bill. On that limited basis, and assuming appropriation of the authorized and estimated amounts, CBO estimates that implementing the unclassified provisions of the bill would cost $537 million over the 2013-2017 period.
