     SEC. __01. SHORT TITLE.

       This title may be cited as the ``Audit the Pentagon Act of 
     2013''.

[[Page S8848]]

     SEC. __02. FINDINGS.

       Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) Section 9 of Article I of the Constitution of the 
     United States requires all agencies of the Federal 
     Government, including the Department of Defense, to publish 
     ``a regular statement and account of the receipts and 
     expenditures of all public money''.
       (2) Section 3515 of title 31, United States Code, requires 
     the agencies of the Federal Government, including the 
     Department of Defense, to present auditable financial 
     statements beginning not later than March 1, 1997. The 
     Department has not complied with this law.
       (3) The Federal Financial Management Improvement Act of 
     1996 (31 U.S.C. 3512 note) requires financial systems 
     acquired by the Federal Government, including the Department 
     of Defense, to be able to provide information to leaders to 
     manage and control the cost of Government. The Department has 
     not complied with this law.
       (4) The financial management of the Department of Defense 
     has been on the ``High-Risk'' list of the Government 
     Accountability Office, which means that the Department is not 
     consistently able to ``control costs; ensure basic 
     accountability; anticipate future costs and claims on the 
     budget; measure performance; maintain funds control; [and] 
     prevent and detect fraud, waste, and abuse''.
       (5) The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 
     2002 (Public Law 107-107) requires the Secretary of Defense 
     to report to Congress annually on the reliability of the 
     financial statements of the Department of Defense, to 
     minimize resources spent on producing unreliable financial 
     statements, and to use resources saved to improve financial 
     management policies, procedures, and internal controls.
       (6) In 2005, the Department of Defense created a Financial 
     Improvement and Audit Readiness (FIAR) Plan, overseen by a 
     directorate within the office of the Under Secretary of 
     Defense (Comptroller), to improve Department business 
     processes with the goal of producing timely, reliable, and 
     accurate financial information that could generate an audit-
     ready annual financial statement. In December 2005, that 
     directorate, known as the FIAR Directorate, issued the first 
     of a series of semiannual reports on the status of the 
     Financial Improvement and Audit Readiness Plan.
       (7) The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 
     2010 (Public Law 111-84) requires regular status reports on 
     the Financial Improvement and Audit Readiness Plan described 
     in paragraph (6), and codified as a statutory requirement the 
     goal of the Plan in ensuring that Department of Defense 
     financial statements are validated as ready for audit not 
     later than September 30, 2017. In addition, the National 
     Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 (Public Law 
     112-239) requires that the statement of budgetary resources 
     of the Department of Defense be validated as ready for audit 
     by not later than September 30, 2014.
       (8) At a September 2010 hearing of the Senate, the 
     Government Accountability Office stated that past 
     expenditures by the Department of Defense of $5,800,000,000 
     to improve financial information, and billions of dollars 
     more of anticipated expenditures on new information 
     technology systems for that purpose, may not suffice to 
     achieve full audit readiness of the financial statement of 
     the Department. At that hearing, the Government 
     Accountability Office could not predict when the Department 
     would achieve full audit readiness of such statements.
       (9) At a 2013 hearing of the Senate, Secretary of Defense 
     Chuck Hagel affirmed his commitment to audit-ready budget 
     statements for the Department of Defense by the end of 2014, 
     and stated that he ``will do everything he can to fulfill 
     this commitment''. At that hearing, Secretary Hagel noted 
     that auditable financial statements were essential to the 
     Department not only for improving the quality of its 
     financial information, but also for reassuring the public and 
     Congress that it is a good steward of public funds.

       (1) The Bill of Rights states in the 4th Amendment to the 
     United States Constitution that ``The right of the people to 
     be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, 
     against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be 
     violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable 
     cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly 
     describing the place to be searched, and the persons or 
     things to be seized.''.
       (2) Media reports indicate that the National Security 
     Agency is currently collecting the phone records of American 
     citizens.
       (3) Media reports indicate that the National Security 
     Agency has secured a top secret court order in April 2013 
     from a court established under section 103 of the Foreign 
     Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 (50 U.S.C. 1803) for 
     the telephone records of millions of American citizens.
       (4) Media reports indicate that President Barack Obama's 
     Administration has been collecting information about millions 
     of citizens within the borders of the United States and 
     between the United States and other countries.
       (5) The collection of citizen's phone records is a 
     violation of the natural rights of every man and woman in the 
     United States, and a clear violation of the explicit language 
     of the highest law of the land.

     SEC. 3. RULE OF CONSTRUCTION.

       The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution shall not be 
     construed to allow any agency of the United States Government 
     to search the phone records of Americans without a warrant 
     based on probable cause.
                                 ______
                                 
  SA 2597. Mr. LEE (for Mr. Paul) submitted an amendment intended to be 
proposed by Mr. Lee to the joint resolution H.J. Res. 59, making 
continuing appropriations for fiscal year 2014, and for other purposes; 
which was ordered to lie on the table; as follows:

       At the appropriate place, insert the following:

     SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

       This Act may be cited as the ``Regulations From the 
     Executive in Need of Scrutiny Act of 2013'' or the ``REINS 
     Act''.

     SEC. 2. FINDINGS AND PURPOSE.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
       (1) Section 1 of article I of the United States 
     Constitution grants all legislative powers to Congress.
       (2) Over time, Congress has excessively delegated its 
     constitutional charge while failing to conduct appropriate 
     oversight and retain accountability for the content of the 
     laws it passes.
       (3) By requiring a vote in Congress, the REINS Act will 
     result in more carefully drafted and detailed legislation, an 
     improved regulatory process, and a legislative branch that is 
     truly accountable to the people of the United States for the 
     laws imposed upon them.
       (b) Purpose.--The purpose of this Act is to increase 
     accountability for and transparency in the Federal regulatory 
     process.
