Between acts of terrorism and aggressive posturing by nations like China and Russia, there are numerous threats to America's national security in the world today. Increasing funding for intelligence activities will help policymakers make informed decisions and be aware of changes.
There needs to be a substantial change in how intelligence activities are funded to increase transparency. There's no reason to support legislation if you don't know all of what's in it. Aside from that, this bill uses budget gimmicks and undercuts the President's funding request.
