    SEMIANNUAL REPORT OF THE ACTIVITY OF THE HOUSE PERMANENT SELECT 
   COMMITTEE ON INTELLIGENCE FOR THE ONE HUNDRED AND TWELFTH CONGRESS

                                _______
                                

  July 1, 2011.--Committed to the Committee of the Whole House on the 
              State of the Union and ordered to be printed

                                _______
                                

    Mr. Rogers of Michigan, from the Permanent Select Committee on 
                 Intelligence, submitted the following

                              R E P O R T

                      MEMBERSHIP AND ORGANIZATION

    Pursuant to Clause XI of House Rule I, the Speaker 
appointed Members to the Committee as follows: Mr. Rogers, 
Michigan, Chairman, January 6, 2011. Mr. Thornberry, Texas; 
Mrs. Myrick, North Carolina; Mr. Miller, Florida; Mr. Conaway, 
Texas; Mr. King, New York; Mr. LoBiondo, New Jersey; Mr. Nunes, 
California; Mr. Westmoreland, Georgia; Mrs. Bachmann, 
Minnesota; Mr. Rooney, Florida; Mr. Heck, Nevada, January 12, 
2011. Mr. Ruppersberger, Maryland, Ranking Member; Mr. 
Thompson, California; Ms. Schakowsky, Illinois; Mr. Langevin, 
Rhode Island; Mr. Schiff, California; Mr. Boren, Oklahoma; Mr. 
Gutierrez, Illinois; Mr. Chandler, Kentucky, January 26, 2011.
    On February 9, 2011, the Committee met with a quorum 
present for the purpose of an organizational meeting and 
adopted proposed Committee Rules by voice vote. The Committee 
Rules for the 112th Congress included a significant reform to 
permit three ``designated members'' of the Appropriations 
Subcommittee on Defense to attend hearings and briefings of the 
Committee, at the discretion of the Chair. These members would 
be designated by the Chairman, in consultation with the Ranking 
Member, for the duration of the Congress. No more than two of 
the Designated Members may be from the same political party. 
This reform is intended to increase coordination between the 
Committee and the Committee on Appropriations with respect to 
authorized and appropriated funding levels for intelligence 
programs.
    The notification requirements with respect to meetings were 
also changed to conform to modifications in the Rules of the 
House. In addition, the Committee Rules also reiterate that 
records of closed sessions of the Committee that are taken or 
created by the Executive Branch continue to be considered as 
Committee documents, and may not be publicly discussed or 
disclosed without the permission of the Committee.
    The full text of the adopted Committee Rules appears later 
in this section.
    Subsequently, on March 3, 2011, the Chairman in 
consultation with the Ranking Member named the Members of each 
of the three Subcommittees. A full listing of the Subcommittee 
Membership appears later in this section.

    (d) Questioning of Witnesses.--

        Committee shall be conducted by members of the 
        Committee.
          (2) Exceptions.--
                  (A) The Chair, in consultation with the 
                Ranking Minority Member, may determine that 
                Committee Staff will be authorized to question 
                witnesses at a hearing in accordance with

        accompanied by counsel, subject to the requirements of 
        paragraph (2).
          (2) Counsel clearances required.--In the event that a 
        meeting of the Committee has been closed because the 
        subject to be discussed deals with classified 
        information, counsel accompanying a witness before the 
        Committee must possess the requisite security clearance 
        and provide proof of such clearance to the Committee at

        counsel intends to be present.
          (3) Failure to obtain counsel.--Any witness who is 
        unable to obtain counsel should notify the Committee. 
        If such notification occurs at least 24 hours prior to 
        the witness' appearance before the Committee, the 
        Committee shall then endeavor to obtain voluntary 
        counsel for the witness. Failure to obtain counsel, 
        however, will not excuse the witness from appearing and 
        testifying.
          (4) Conduct of counsel for witnesses.--Counsel for 
        witnesses appearing before the Committee shall conduct 
        themselves ethically and professionally at all times in 
        their dealings with the Committee.
                  (A) A majority of members of the Committee 
                may, should circumstances warrant, find that 
                counsel for a witness before the Committee 
                failed to conduct himself or herself in an 
                ethical or professional manner.
                  (B) Upon such finding, counsel may be subject 
                to appropriate disciplinary action.
          (5) Temporary removal of counsel.--The Chair may 
        remove counsel during any proceeding before the 
        Committee for failure to act in an ethical and 
        professional manner.
          (6) Committee reversal.--A majority of the members of 
        the Committee may vote to overturn the decision of the 
        Chair to remove counsel for a witness.
          (7) Role of counsel for witness.--
                  (A) Counsel for a witness:
                          (i) Shall not be allowed to examine 
                        witnesses before the Committee, either 
                        directly or through cross-examination; 
                        but
                          (ii) May submit questions in writing 
                        to the Committee that counsel wishes 
                        propounded to a witness; or
                          (iii) May suggest, in writing to the 
                        Committee, the presentation of other 
                        evidence or the calling of other 
                        witnesses.
                  (B) The Committee may make such use of any 
                such questions, or suggestions, as the 
                Committee deems appropriate.
    (f) Statements by Witnesses.--
          (1) Generally.--A witness may make a statement, which 
        shall be brief and relevant, at the beginning and at 
        the conclusion of the witness' testimony.
          (2) Length.--Each such statement shall not exceed 
        five minutes in length, unless otherwise determined by 
        the Chair.
          (3) Submission to the committee.--Any witness 
        desiring to submit a written statement for the record 
        of the proceeding shall submit a copy of the statement 
        to the Chief Clerk of the Committee.
                  (A) Such statements shall ordinarily be 
                submitted no less than 48 hours in advance of 
                the witness' appearance before the Committee 
                and shall be submitted in written and 
                electronic format.
                  (B) In the event that the hearing was called 
                with less than 24 hours notice, written 
                statements should be submitted as soon as 
                practicable prior to the hearing.
    (g) Objections and Ruling.--
          (1) Generally.--Any objection raised by a witness, or 
        counsel for the witness, shall be ruled upon by the 
        Chair, and such ruling shall be the ruling of the 
        Committee.
          (2) Committee action.--A ruling by the Chair may be 
        overturned upon a majority vote of the Committee.
    (h) Transcripts.--
          (1) Transcript required.--A transcript shall be made 
        of the testimony of each witness appearing before the 
        Committee during any hearing of the Committee.
          (2) Opportunity to inspect.--Any witness testifying 
        before the Committee shall be given a reasonable 
        opportunity to inspect the transcript of the hearing, 
        and may be accompanied by counsel to determine whether 
        such testimony was correctly transcribed. Such counsel:
                  (A) May review the transcript only if he or 
                she has the appropriate security clearances 
                necessary to review any classified aspect of 
                the transcript; and
                  (B) Should, to the extent possible, be the 
                same counsel that was present for such 
                classified testimony.
          (3) Corrections.--
                  (A) Pursuant to Rule XI of the House Rules,

                grammatical, and typographical corrections.
                  (B) Corrections may not be made to change the 
                substance of the Testimony.
                  (C) Such corrections shall be submitted in 
                writing to the Committee within 7 days after 
                the transcript is made available to the 
                witnesses.
                  (D) Any questions arising with respect to 
                such corrections shall be decided by the Chair.
          (4) Copy for the witness.--At the request of the 
        witness, any portion of the witness' testimony given in 
        executive session shall be made available to that 
        witness if that testimony is: subsequently quoted or 
        intended to be made part of a public record. Such 
        testimony shall be made available to the witness at the 
        witness' expense.
    (i) Requests to Testify.--
          (1) Generally.--The Committee will consider requests 
        to testify on any matter or measure pending before the

          (2) Recommendations for additional evidence.--Any 
        person who believes that testimony, other evidence, or 
        commentary, presented at a public hearing may tend to

                   FISA SUNSETS EXTENSION ACT OF 2011

                           (H.R. 1800/S. 990)

Summary

    To extend expiring provisions of the USA PATRIOT 
Improvement and Reauthorization Act of 2005 relating to access 
to business records and roving wiretaps until May 27, 2017, and 
to permanently extend a provision of the Intelligence Reform 
and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 relating to individual 
terrorists as agents of foreign powers.

Legislative History

    H.R. 1800 was introduced by Representative James 
Sensenbrenner on May 6, 2011. The Permanent Select Committee on 
Intelligence was discharged from consideration of the bill on 
May 18, 2011. Subsequently, similar legislation was contained 
in a House Amendment to S. 990 agreed to by voice vote on May 
24, 2011, under suspension of the rules. The Senate agreed to 
the House Amendment with an amendment on May 26, 2011, by a 
yea-nay vote of 72-23. The Senate amendment extended all three 
provisions to June 1, 2015. The House agreed to the Senate 
amendment on May 26, 2011 by a recorded vote of 250-153. The 
President directed his assent to the bill on May 26, 2011, and 
S. 990 became Public Law 112-14.

                 OVERSIGHT PLAN FOR THE 112TH CONGRESS

    Clause 2(d) of rule X of the Rules of the House of 
Representatives for the 112th Congress requires that each 
standing committee in the first session of a Congress adopt an 
oversight plan for that Congress and submit the plan to the 
Committee on Government Reform and the Committee on House 
Administration. Clause 1(d)(1) of Rule XI requires each 
committee to submit to the House, not later than the 30th day 
after June 1 and December 1, a semiannual report on the 
activities of that committee under Rule X, including specific 
matters related to the implementation of the oversight plan.
    Because the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is a 
select committee, and not a standing committee, Clause 2(d) of 
Rule X does not apply to the committee and an oversight plan 
was thus not required. The Committee notes that this exclusion 
from providing a public oversight plan is further justified and 
necessitated by the classified and sensitive nature of the 
oversight activities performed by the Committee.
    Clause 2(d)(2)(D) of Rule XI also requires that each 
committee provide a delineation of any hearings held pursuant 
to clauses 2(n), (o), or (p) of Rule XI. Those clauses require 
the committee, or a subcommittee thereof, to hold at least one 
hearing on egregious instances of agency waste, fraud, and 
abuse, at least one hearing on agency financial statements, and 
one hearing on examples of waste, fraud, and abuse raised by 
the Comptroller General of the United States.
    As part of the Committee's oversight and authorization of 
the intelligence community budget, the Committee conducts 
numerous classified hearings and briefings that focus on issues 
of potential waste, fraud, and abuse in federal agencies. These 
Committee efforts resulted in the Intelligence Community 
Authorization Act of 2011, which was signed into law on June 8, 
2011, and the Intelligence Community Authorization Act of 2012, 
which was marked up in Committee on May 26, 2011. Each of these 
bills contained a detailed classified annex on all intelligence 
community programs and budgets. A review of potential waste, 
fraud, and abuse within these programs is an inextricable part 
of the development of the classified annex.
