Support the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017

We urge you to support the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 (FY17 IAA), which we expect to be incorporated as Division N of H.R. 244.  After months of continuous negotiations, the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate
Select Committee on Intelligence have reached final agreement on this important legislation.   The FY17 IAA passed the House three times in the 114th
Congress, twice on suspension by large margins, and the third time by unanimous consent (UC).  Key differences from H.R. 6480, which passed on UC, are the deletion of two provisions (Sections 312 and 615) and final modifications to the provisions related
to intelligence community personnel caps.  There are other minor changes necessary to conform with appropriations, and to reflect passage later in the fiscal year.
