the transcript shall be submitted in writing to the Committee within 
five days from the date when the transcript was made available to the 
witness. Corrections shall be limited to grammar and minor editing, and 
may not be made to change the substance of the testimony. Any questions 
arising with respect to such corrections shall be decided by the

request to appear personally before the Committee to testify on his or 
her own behalf, or may file a sworn statement of facts relevant to the 
testimony, evidence, or comment, or may submit to the Chairman proposed 
questions in writing for the cross-examination of other witnesses. The 
Committee shall take such action as it deems appropriate.

contempt, and agreed by majority vote of the Committee, to forward such 
recommendation to the Senate.

Chairman, the name of any witness scheduled to be heard by the Committee 
shall not be released prior to, or after, his or her appearance before

At least one security guard shall be on duty at all times by the 
entrance to control entry. Before entering the office all persons shall 
identify themselves.

    9.2. Sensitive or classified documents and material shall be 
segregated in a secure storage area. They may be examined only at secure 
reading facilities. Copying, duplicating, or removal from the Committee 
offices of such documents and other materials is prohibited except as is 
necessary for use in, or preparation for, interviews or Committee 
meetings, including the taking of testimony, and in conformity with 
Section 10.3 hereof. All documents or materials removed from the 
Committee offices for such authorized purposes must be returned to the 
Committee's secure storage area for overnight storage.

    9.3. Each member of the Committee shall at all times have access to 
all papers and other material received from any source. The Staff 
Director shall be responsible for the maintenance, under appropriate 
security procedures, of a registry which will number and identify all 
classified papers and other classified materials in the possession of 
the Committee, and such registry shall be available to any member of the 
Committee.

    9.4. Whenever the Select Committee on Intelligence makes classified 
material available to any other Committee of the Senate or to any member 
of the Senate not a member of the Committee, such material shall be 
accompanied by a verbal or written notice to the recipients advising of 
their responsibility to protect such material pursuant to section 8 of 
S. Res. 400 of the 94th Congress. The Clerk of the Committee shall 
ensure that such notice is provided and shall maintain a written record 
identifying the particular information transmitted and the Committee or 
members of the Senate receiving such information.

    9.5. Access to classified information supplied to the Committee 
shall be limited to those Committee staff members with appropriate 
security clearance and a need-to-know, as determined by the Committee, 
and, under the Committee's direction, the Staff Director and Minority 
Staff Director.

    9.6. No member of the Committee or of the Committee staff shall 
disclose, in whole or in part or by way of summary, to any person not a 
member of the Committee or the Committee staff for any purpose or in 
connection with any proceeding, judicial or otherwise, any testimony 
given before the Committee in executive session including the name of 
any witness who appeared or was called to appear before the Committee in 
executive session, or the contents of any papers or materials or other 
information received by the Committee except as authorized herein, or 
otherwise as authorized by the Committee in accordance with Section 8 of 
S. Res. 400 of the 94th Congress and the provisions of these rules, or 
in the event of the termination of the Committee, in such a manner as 
may be determined by the Senate. For purposes of this paragraph, members 
and staff of the Committee may disclose classified information in the 
possession of the Committee only to persons with appropriate security 
clearances who have a need to know such information for an official 
governmental purpose related to the work of the Committee. Information 
discussed in executive sessions of the Committee and information 
contained in papers and materials which are not classified but which are 
controlled by the Committee may be disclosed only to persons outside the 
Committee who have a need to know such information for an official 
governmental purpose related to the work of the Committee and only if 
such disclosure has been authorized by the Chairman and Vice Chairman of 
the Committee, or by the Staff Director and Minority Staff Director, 
acting on their behalf. Failure to abide by this provision shall 
constitute grounds for referral to the Select Committee on Ethics 
pursuant to Section 8 of S. Res. 400.

    9.7. Before the Committee makes any decision regarding the 
disposition of any testimony, papers, or other materials presented to 
it, the Committee members shall have a reasonable opportunity to examine 
all pertinent testimony, papers, and other materials that have been 
obtained by the members of the Committee or the Committee staff.

    9.8. Attendance of persons outside the Committee at closed meetings 
of the Committee shall be kept at a minimum and shall be limited to 
persons who appropriate security clearance and a need-to-know the 
information under consideration for the execution of their official 
duties. Notes taken at such meetings by any person in attendance shall 
be returned to the secure storage area in the Committee's offices at the 
conclusion of such meetings, and may be made available to the 
department, agency, office, committee or entity concerned only in 
accordance with the security procedures of the Committee.

                             Rule 10. Staff

    10.1. For purposes of these rules. Committee staff includes 
employees of the Committee, consultants to the Committee, or any other

Committee shall rely on its full-time employees to perform all staff 
functions. No individual may be retained as staff of the Committee or to 
perform services for the Committee unless that individual holds 
appropriate security clearances.

    10.2. The appointment of Committee staff shall be confirmed by a 
majority vote of the Committee. After confirmation, the Chairman shall 
certify Committee staff appointments to the Financial Clerk of the 
Senate in writing. No Committee staff shall be given access to any

such Committee staff has received an appropriate security clearance as 
described in Section 6 of Senate Resolution 400 of the 94th Congress.

    10.3. The Committee staff works for the Committee as a whole, under 
the supervision of the Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Committee. The 
duties of the Committee staff shall be performed, and Committee staff 
personnel affairs and day-to-day operations, including security and 
control of classified documents and material, and shall be administered 
under the direct supervision and control of the Staff Director. The 
Minority Staff Director and the Minority Counsel shall be kept fully 
informed regarding all matters and shall have access to all material in 
the files of the Committee.

majority in the expression of minority views, including assistance in 
the preparation and filing of additional, separate and minority views, 
to the end that all points of view may be fully considered by the 
Committee and the Senate.

    10.5 The members of the Committee staff shall not discuss either the 
substance or procedure of the work of the Committee with any person not 
a member of the Committee or the Committee staff for any purpose or in 
connection with any proceeding, judicial or otherwise, either during 
their tenure as a member of the Committee staff at any time thereafter 
except as directed by the Committee in accordance with Section 8 of S. 
Res. 400 of the 94th Congress and the provisions of these rules, or in 
the event of the termination of the Committee, in such a manner as may 
be determined by the Senate.

2nd Session, and to abide by the Committee's code of conduct.

Committee unless and until such a member of the Committee staff agrees 
in writing, as a condition of employment, to notify the Committee or in 
the event of the Committee's termination the Senate of any request for 
his or her testimony, either during his tenure as a member of the 
Committee staff or at any time thereafter with respect to information 
which came into his or her possession by virtue of his or her position 
as a member of the Committee staff. Such information shall not be 
disclosed in response to such requests except as directed by the 
Committee in accordance with Section 8 of S. Res. 400 of the 94th 
Congress and the provisions of these rules, or in the event of the 
termination of the Committee, in such manner as may be determined by the 
Senate.

    10.8 The Committee shall immediately consider action to be taken in 
the case of any member of the Committee staff who fails to conform to 
any of these Rules. Such disciplinary action may include, but shall not 
be limited to, immediate dismissal from the Committee staff.

    10.9. Within the Committee staff shall be an element with the 
capability to perform audits of programs and activities undertaken by 
departments and agencies with intelligence functions. Such element shall 
be comprised of persons qualified by training and/or experience to carry 
out such functions in accordance with accepted auditing standards.

    10.10 The workplace of the Committee shall be free from illegal use, 
possession, sale or distribution of controlled substances by its 
employees. Any violation of such policy by any member of the Committee 
staff shall be grounds for termination of employment. Further, and 
illegal use of controlled substances by a member of the Committee staff, 
within the workplace or otherwise, shall result in reconsideration of 
the security clearance of any such staff member and may constitute 
grounds for termination of employment with the Committee.

    10.11. In accordance with title III of the Civil Rights Act of 1991 
(P.L. 102-166), all personnel actions affecting the staff of the

the Committee that bear on matters to be considered at the meeting.

To establish a Standing Committee of the Senate on Intelligence, and for 
                             other purposes

    Resolved, That it is the purpose of this resolution to establish a 
new select committee of the Senate, to be known as the Select Committee 
on Intelligence, to oversee and make continuing studies of the 
intelligence activities and programs of the United States Government, 
and to submit to the Senate appropriate proposals for legislation and 
report to the Senate concerning such intelligence activities and 
programs. In carrying out this purpose, the Select Committee on 
Intelligence shall make every effort to assure that the appropriate 
departments and agencies of the United States provide informed and 
timely intelligence necessary for the executive and legislative branches 
to make sound decisions affecting the security and vital interests of 
the Nation. It is further the purpose of this resolution to provide 
vigilant legislative oversight over the intelligence activities of the 
United States to assure that such activities are in conformity with the 
Constitution and laws of the United States.

    Sec. 2. (a)(1) There is hereby established a select committee to be 
known as the Select Committee on Intelligence (hereinafter in this 
resolution referred to as the ``select committee''). The select 
committee shall be composed of fifteen members appointed as follows:

        (A) two members from the Committee on Appropriations;

        (B) two members from the Committee on Armed Services;

        (E) seven members to be appointed from the Senate at large.

    (2) Members appointed from each committee named in clauses (A) 
through (D) of paragraph (1) shall be evenly divided between the two 
major political parties and shall be appointed by the President pro 
tempore of the Senate upon the recommendations of the majority and 
minority leaders of the Senate. Four of the members appointed under 
clause (E) of paragraph (1) shall be appointed by the President pro

the Senate and three shall be appointed by the President pro tempore of 
the Senate upon the recommendation of the minority leader of the Senate.

years of continuous service, exclusive of service by any Senator on such 
committee during the Ninety-fourth Congress. To the greatest extent 
practicable, one-third of the Members of the Senate appointed to the 
select committee at the beginning of the Ninety-seventh Congress and 
each Congress thereafter shall be Members of the Senate who did not 
serve on such committee during the preceding Congress.

    (c) At the beginning of each Congress, the Members of the Senate who 
are members of the majority party of the Senate shall elect a chairman 
for the select committee, and the Members of the Senate who are from the 
minority party of the Senate shall elect a vice chairman for such 
committee. The vice chairman shall act in the place and stead of the 
chairman in the absence of the chairman. Neither the chairman nor the 
vice chairman of the select committee shall at the same time serve as 
chairman or ranking minority member of any other committee referred to 
in paragraph 4(e)(1) of rule XXV of the Standing Rules of the Senate.

    State; the Department of Justice; and the Department of the 
    Treasury.

        (3) The organization or reorganization of any department or 
    agency of the Government to the extent that the organization or

            which is the successor to any department, agency, bureau, or 
             subdivision named in clause (D), (E), or (F) to the extent 
            that the activities of such successor department, agency, or 
            subdivision are activities described in clause (D), (E), or 
                                        (F).

    (b) Any proposed legislation reported by the select committee, 
except any legislation involving matters specified in clause (1) or 
(4)(A) of subsection (a), containing any matter otherwise within the 
jurisdiction of any standing committee shall, at the request of the 
chairman of such standing committee, be referred to such standing 
committee for its consideration of such matter and be reported to the 
Senate by such standing committee within thirty days after the day on 
which such proposed legislation is referred to such standing committee; 
and any proposed legislation reported by any committee, other than the

committee, be referred to the select committee for its consideration of 
such matter and be reported to the Senate by the select committee within

proposed legislation referred to it within the time limit prescribed 
herein, such committee shall be automatically discharged from further 
consideration of such proposed legislation on the thirtieth day 
following the day on which such proposed legislation is referred to such 
committee unless the Senate provides otherwise. In computing any thirty-
day period under this paragraph there shall be excluded from such 
computation any days on which the Senate is not in session.

otherwise restricting the authority of any other committee to study and 
review any intelligence activity to the extent that such activity 
directly affects a matter otherwise within the jurisdiction of such 
committee.

    (d) Nothing in this resolution shall be construed as amending, 
limiting, or otherwise changing the authority of any standing committee 
of the Senate to obtain full and prompt access to the product of the 
intelligence activities of any department or agency of the Government 
relevant to a matter otherwise within the jurisdiction of such 
committee.

    Sec. 4. (a) The select committee, for the purposes of accountability 
to the Senate, shall make regular and periodic reports to the Senate on 
the nature and extent of the intelligence activities of the various 
departments and agencies of the United States. Such committee shall 
promptly call to the attention of the Senate or to any other appropriate 
committee or committees of the Senate any matters requiring the 
attention of the Senate or such other committee or committees. In making 
such report, the select committee shall proceed in a manner consistent 
with section 8(c)(2) to protect national security.

    (b) The select committee shall obtain an annual report, from the 
Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, the Secretary of Defense, 
the Secretary of State, and the Director of the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation. Such reports shall review the intelligence activities of 
the agency or department concerned and the intelligence activities of 
foreign countries directed at the United States or its interest. An 
unclassified version of each report may be made available to the public 
at the discretion of the select committee. Nothing herein shall be 
construed as requiring the public disclosure in such reports of the 
names of individuals engaged in intelligence activities for the United 
States or the divulging of intelligence methods employed or the sources 
of information on which such reports are based or the amount of funds 
authorized to be appropriated for intelligence activities.

    (c) On or before March 15 of each year, the select committee shall 
submit to the Committee on the Budget of the Senate the views and 
estimates described in section 301(c) of the Congressional Budget Act of

    Sec. 5. (a) For the purpose of this resolution, the select committee 
is authorized in its discretion (1) to make investigations into any 
matter within its jurisdiction, (2) to make expenditures from the 
contingent fund of the Senate, (3) to employ personnel, (4) to hold 
hearings, (5) to sit and act at any time or place during the sessions, 
recesses, and adjourned periods of the Senate, (6) to require, by 
subpoena or otherwise, the attendance of witnesses and the production of 
correspondence, books, papers, and documents, (7) to take depositions 
and other testimony, (8) to procure the service of individual

and the Committee on Rules and Administration, to use on a reimbursable 
basis the services of personnel of any such department or agency.

    (b) The chairman of the select committee or any member thereof may 
administer oaths to witnesses.

    (c) Subpoenas authorized by the select committee may be issued over 
the signature of the chairman, the vice chairman or any member of the 
select committee designated by the chairman, and may be served by any 
person designated by the chairman or any member signing the subpoenas.

    Sec. 6. No employee of the select committee or any person engaged by 
contract or otherwise to perform services for or at the request of such 
committee shall be given access to any classified information by such 
committee unless such employee or person has (1) agreed to in writing 
and under oath to be bound by the rules of the Senate (including the 
jurisdiction of the Select Committee on Standards and Conduct and of 
such committee as to the security of such information during and after 
the period of his employment or contractual agreement with such 
committee; and (2) received an appropriate security clearance as 
determined by such committee in consultation with the Director of 
Central Intelligence. The type of security clearance to be required in 
the case of any such employee or person shall, within the determination 
of such committee in consultation with the Director of Central 
Intelligence, be commensurate with the sensitivity of the classified 
information to which such employee or person will be given access by 
such committee.

    Sec. 7. The select committee shall formulate and carry out such 
rules and procedures as it deems necessary to prevent the disclosure, 
without the consent of the person or persons concerned, of information 
in the possession of such committee which unduly infringes upon the 
privacy or which violates the constitutional rights of such person or 
persons. Nothing herein shall be construed to prevent such committee 
from publicly disclosing any such information in any case in which such 
committee determines the national interest in the disclosure of such 
information clearly outweighs any infringement on the privacy of any 
person or persons.

    Sec. 8. (a) the select committee may, subject to the provisions of 
this section, disclose publicly any information in the possession of 
such committee after a determination by such committee that the public 
interest would be served by such disclosure. Whenever committee action 
is required to disclose any information under this section, the 
committee shall meet to vote on the matter within five days after any 
member of the committee requests such a vote. No member of the select 
committee shall disclose any information, the disclosure of which 
requires a committee vote, prior to a vote by the committee on the 
question of the disclosure of such information or after such vote except 
in accordance with this section.

    (b)(1) In any case in which the select committee votes to disclose 
publicly any information which has been classified under established 
security procedures, which has been submitted to it by the executive 
branch, and which the executive branch requests be kept secret, such 
committee shall notify the President of such vote.

    (2) The select committee may disclose publicly such information 
after the expiration of a five-day period following the day on which 
notice of such vote is transmitted to the President, unless, prior to 
the expiration of such five-day period, the President, personally in 
writing, notifies the committee that he objects to the disclosure of 
such information, provides his reasons therefor, and certifies that the 
threat to national interest of the United States posed by such 
disclosure is of such gravity that it outweighs any public interest in 
the disclosure.

    (3) If the President, personally in writing, notifies the select 
committee of his objections to the disclosure of such information as 
provided in paragraph (2), such committee may, by majority vote, refer 
the question of the disclosure of such information to the Senate for 
consideration. The committee shall not publicly disclose such 
information without leave of the Senate.

    (4) Whenever the select committee votes to refer the question of 
disclosure of any information to the Senate under paragraph (3), the 
chairman shall not later than the first day on which the Senate is in 
session following the day on which the vote occurs, report the matter to 
the Senate for its consideration.

    (5) One hour after the Senate convenes on the fourth day on which 
the Senate is in session following the day on which any such matter is 
reported to the Senate, or at such earlier time as the majority leader 
and the minority leader of the Senate jointly agree upon in accordance 
with paragraph 5 of rule XVII of the Standing Rules of the Senate, the 
Senate shall go into closed session and the matter shall be the pending 
business. In considering the matter in closed session the Senate may--

        (A) approve the public disclosure of all or any portion of the 
    information in question, in which case the committee shall publicly 
    disclose the information ordered to be disclosed.

        (B) disapprove the public disclosure of all or any portion of 
    the information in question, in which case the committee shall not 
    publicly disclose the information ordered not to be disclosed, or

        (C) refer all or any portion of the matter back to the 
    committee, in which case the committee shall make the final 
    determination with respect to the public disclosure of the 
    information in question.

    Upon conclusion of the information of such matter in closed session, 
which may not extend beyond the close of the ninth day on which the 
Senate is in session following the day on which such matter was reported 
to the Senate, or the close of the fifth day following the day agreed 
upon jointly by the majority and minority leaders in accordance with 
paragraph 5 of rule XVII of the Standing Rules of the Senate (whichever 
the case may be), the Senate shall immediately vote on the disposition 
of such matter in open session, without debate, and without divulging 
the information with respect to which the vote is being taken. The 
Senate shall vote to dispose of such matter by one or more of the means 
specified in clauses (A), (B), and (C) of the second sentence of this 
paragraph. Any vote of the Senate to disclose any information pursuant 
to this paragraph shall be subject to the right of a Member of the 
Senate to move for reconsideration of the vote within the time and 
pursuant to the procedures specified in rule XIII of the Standing Rules 
of the Senate, and the disclosure of such information shall be made 
consistent with that right.

    (c)(1) No information in the possession of the select committee 
relating to the lawful intelligence activities of any department or 
agency of the United States which has been classified under established 
security procedures and which the select committee, pursuant to 
subsection (a) or (b) of this section, has determined should not be 
disclosed shall be made available to any person by a Member, officer, or 
employee of the Senate except in a closed session of the Senate or as 
provided in paragraph (2).

    (2) The select committee may, under such regulations as the 
committee shall prescribe to protect the confidentiality of such 
information, make any information described in paragraph (1) available 
to any other committee or any other Member of the Senate. Whenever the 
select committee makes such information available, the committee shall 
keep a written record showing, in the case of any particular 
information, which the committee or which Members of the Senate received 
such information under this subsection, shall disclose such information 
except in a closed session of the Senate.

    (d) It shall be the duty of the Select Committee on Standards and 
Conduct \1\ to investigate any unauthorized disclosure of intelligence 
information by a Member, officer or employee of the Senate in violation 
of subsection (c) and to report to the Senate concerning any allegation 
which it finds to be substantiated.

    (e) Upon the request of any person who is subject to any such 
investigation, the Select Committee on Standards and Conduct \1\ shall 
release to such individual at the conclusion of its investigation a 
summary of its investigation together with its findings. If, at the 
conclusion of its investigation, the Select Committee on Standards and 
Conduct \1\ determines that there has been a significant breach of 
confidentiality or unauthorized disclosure by a Member, officer, or 
employee of the Senate, it shall report its findings to the Senate and 
recommend appropriate action such as censure, removal from committee 
membership, or expulsion from the Senate, in the case of a Member, or 
removal from office or employment or punishment for contempt, in the 
case of an officer or employee.

representative of the President, designated by the President to serve as 
a liaison to such committee, to attend any closed meeting of such 
committee.

such committee, under appropriate conditions established by it, shall be 
transferred to the select committee.

    Sec. 11. (a) It is the sense of the Senate that the head of each 
department and agency of the United States should keep the select 
committee fully and currently informed with respect to intelligence

Provided, That this does not constitute a condition precedent to the 
implementation of any such anticipated intelligence activity.

    (b) it is the sense of the Senate that the head of any department or 
agency of the United States involved in any intelligence activities 
should furnish any information or document in the possession, custody, 
or control of the department or agency, or person paid by such 
department or agency, whenever requested by the select committee with 
respect to any matter within such committee's jurisdiction.

    (c) It is the sense of the Senate that each department and agency of

committee any and all intelligence activities which constitute 
violations of the constitutional rights of any person, violations of 
law, or violations of Executive orders, presidential directives, or 
departmental or agency rules or regulations; each department and agency 
should further report to such committee what actions have been taken or 
are expected to be taken by the departments or agencies with respect to 
such violations.

    Sec. 12. Subject to the Standing Rules of the Senate, no funds shall 
be appropriated for any fiscal year beginning after September 30, 1976,

the Senate, or any subcommittee thereof, including meetings to conduct 
hearings, shall be open to the public, except that a portion or portions 
of any such meetings may be closed to the public if the committee or 
subcommittee, as the case may be, determines by record vote of a 
majority of the members of the committee or subcommittee present that 
the matters to be discussed or the testimony to be taken at such portion 
or portions--

        ``(1) will disclose matters necessary to be kept secret in the 
    interests of national defense or the confidential conduct of the 
    foreign relations of the United States;

        ``(2) will relate solely to matters of committee staff personnel 
    or internal staff management or procedure;

        ``(3) will tend to charge an individual with crime or 
    misconduct, to disgrace or injure the professional standing of an 
    individual, or otherwise to expose an individual to public contempt 
    or obloquy, or will represent a clearly unwarranted invasion of the 
    privacy of an individual;

        ``(4) will disclose the identity of any informer or law 
    enforcement agent or will disclose any information relating to the 
    investigation or prosecution of a criminal offense that is required 
    to be kept secret in the interests of effective law enforcement; or

        ``(5) will disclose information relating to the trade secrets or 
    financial or commercial information pertaining specifically to a 
    given person if--

          ``(A) an Act of Congress requires the information to be kept 
                confidential by Government officers and employees; or
         ``(B) the information has been obtained by the Government on a 
              confidential basis, other than through an application by 
              such person for a specific Government financial or other 
            benefit, and is ruired to be kept secret in order to prevent 
              undue injury to the competitive position of such person.

    Whenever any hearing conducted by any such committee or subcommittee 
is open to the public, that hearing may be broadcast by radio or 
television, or both, under such rules as the committee or subcommittee 
may adopt.''.

1946, section 242(a) of the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1970, and 
section 102 (d) and (e) of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974 are
