Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 1803, Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2006 [open pdf - 62KB]
This is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate as reported by the Senate Committee on Armed Services on October 27, 2005. From the Summary: "S. 1803 would authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2006 for intelligence activities of the U.S. government, the Intelligence Community Management Account, and the Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and Disability System (CIARDS). This estimate addresses only the unclassified portion of the bill. On that limited basis, CBO estimates that implementing certain provisions of the bill would cost $539 million in 2006 and just over $1 billion over the 2006-2010 period, assuming appropriation of the necessary funds. S. 1803 would affect direct spending, but CBO cannot estimate those effects because the data required to prepare such an estimate are classified."
