S 1589 Reported in the Senate – FY 2018, 2019, and 2020 Intel Authorization

Last week Sen. Burr (R,NC) introduced (and the Senate Intelligence Committee reported – without a written report) S 1589, the Damon Paul Nelson and Matthew Young Pollard Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Years 2018, 2019, and 2020. This bill is essentially S 245 (introduced earlier this year) as division B with a relatively short Division A tacked onto the front for FY 2020.

Moving Forward

Okay, I have no clue. The Senate has not taken up an intelligence authorization bill since Trump came into office. This bill has been one of the annual ‘must pass’ bills for as long as I remember, but that is apparently no longer true.


There is nothing in the new Division A language that I would care to take time to comment upon. See my comments on S 245 for the cybersecurity provisions in Division B.
