H. Rept. 114-102 - NATIONAL DEFENSE AUTHORIZATION ACT FOR FISCAL YEAR 2016

Section 1055: The committee believes that providing the authority for the Department to carry out the pilot program established in this section would provide the flexibility needed to try out different approaches, tailored to the operating environment and circumstances, to see more broadly which approaches work and which do not. The committee also believes that there is an important technology component that has not been well-utilized in the past, which will help the military sense, respond and plan for operations in the information environment in ways that traditional approaches do not provide.

Items of Special Interest: Elsewhere in this report, the committee expresses concern with the information operations being conducted by the Federation of Russia in Ukraine and Eastern Europe, and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), and provides additional authority for a pilot program to support information operations and strategic communications capabilities. The committee urges U.S. Special Operations Command to leverage this authority to enhance information-related and strategic communications capabilities to support the tactical,
operational, and strategic requirements of the various
combatant commanders, including urgent and emergent operational needs, and the operational and theater security cooperation plans of the geographic and functional combatant commanders. Therefore, the committee recommends $54.7 million, an increase of $30.0 million, for U.S. Special Operations Command global inform and influence activities to expand activities against the Russian Federation and ISIL.

Meh, wasted money because Commander's take too long to approve any campaign or just refuse to conduct Strategic Psyops Campaigns.
