S. 2386 (108th): Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005

An original bill to authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2005 for intelligence and intelligence-related activities of the United States Government , the Intelligence Community Management Account, and the Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and Disability System, and for other purposes.

The bill’s titles are written by its sponsor.

The federal budget process occurs in two stages: appropriations and authorizations. This is an authorization bill, which directs how federal funds should or should not be used. (It does not set overall spending limits, however, which are the subject of appropriations bills.) Authorizations are typically made for single fiscal years (October 1 through September 30 of the next year) but are often renewed in subsequent law.
