The intelligence bill language included in the Omnibus would also limit the travel of Russian diplomats in the United States, requiring an "advance notification regime" governing travel by all "accredited diplomatic and consular personnel" from Russia who serve in the United States.
The inclusion of major intelligence legislation in the broader Omnibus budget deal was not advertised when the deal was announced on Sunday night, as the extra language was quietly posted Tuesday morning on the internet.
It's not the first time that major intelligence legislation has been stuffed into a broader catch-all spending measure in the Congress, as the same thing happened in late 2015 as well.
The intelligence legislation was worked out by the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, as the policy bill authorizes the spending of money for the sixteen different intelligence arms of the U.S. Government.
Also added to the Omnibus measure was an explanatory document on the intelligence policy measure.
The intelligence additions mean the Omnibus spending measure is now over 1,750 pages of legislative bill text, with an additional 1,300 pages of explanatory language.
A vote is anticipated on Wednesday in the House on the Omnibus, officially named the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2017.
