Dear Mr. Speaker:

This report is submitted pursuant to the Foreign Intelligence 
Surveillance Act of 1978, Title 50, United States Code, Section 
1807, as amended.

During calendar year 1999, 886 applications were made for orders and 
extensions of orders approving electronic surveillance or physical 
search under the Act. the United States Foreign Intelligence 
Surveillance Court issued orders in 880 applications granting 
authority to the Government for the requested electronic 
surveillance and electronic searches. One application filed in 1999 
was pending before the Court until March 29, 2000, when it was 
approved. Five applications which were filed in late December 1999 
were approved when presented to the Court on January 5, 2000.

No orders were entered which modified or denied the requested authority.


              Janet Reno
