H.R. 5743, Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013

Cost Estimate

As ordered reported by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on May 17, 2012

H.R. 5743 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 amounts, CBO estimates that implementing the unclassified provisions of H.R. 5743 would cost $525 million over the 2013-2017 period.
