MOYNIHAN AMENDMENT NO. 1057 (Senate - October 18, 1993)

[Page: S13853]

Mr. MOYNIHAN proposed an amendment to the bill H.R. 3116, supra, as follows:

At the appropriate place in the bill, insert the following new section:


(A) Findings: The Congress finds that--

(1) Article I, section 9, clause 7 of the United States Constitution states that `No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by law; and a regular Statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time.'

(2) During the cold war the United States did not provide to the American people a `regular Statement and Account of the * * * Expenditures' to intelligence activities.

(3) The failure to provide to the American people a statement of the total amount of expenditures on intelligence activities prevents them from participating in an informed, democratic decision concerning the appropriate level for such expenditures.

(b) Publication of Figure for Total Intelligence Spending: Section 1105(a) of title of the United States Code is amended to add at the end thereof--`(27) a separate, unclassified statement of the aggregate amount of budget outlays for the prior fiscal year for national and tactical intelligence activities. This figure shall included, without limitation, outlays for activities carried out under the Department of Defense budget to collect, analyze, produce, disseminate or support the collection of intelligence.'
