Since President Bush signed the FY2005 Intelligence Authorization bill (P.L. 108-487) in Dec. 2004, no subsequent intelligence authorization legislation was enacted until the FY2010 bill was signed by President Obama in Oct. 2010 (after the end of FY2010), becoming P.L. 111-259. Although the National Security Act requires intelligence activities to be specifically authorized, this requirement has been satisfied in recent years by one-sentence catchall provisions in defense appropriations acts authorizing intelligence activities. This procedure meets the statutory requirement but has, according to some observers, weakened the ability of Congress to oversee intelligence activities. Contents of this report: (1) Introduction; (2) Background: Funding for a Changed Intelligence Environment; A Brief Case Study: The Challenge of Satellites and Other Overhead Surveillance Programs; Related Concerns about Intelligence Oversight; The Intelligence Authorization Act of FY2010; Intelligence Authorization Legislation for FY2011 and 2012; (3) Conclusion. This is a print on demand report.
