Yesterday, the President signed the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 into law. Congressional oversight of intelligence is not only essential in our democracy, but also important to the effective and efficient operations of our Intelligence Community. We worked closely with the congressional committees on this authorization act, and the Intelligence Community looks forward to continuing our frequent and transparent interactions with the oversight committees.
