Horn says this is his last term in the House

Rep. Steve Horn

Rep. Steve Horn, a watchdog of federal information technology efforts, announced plans last week to retire from the House of Representatives.

The California Republican said his congressional career would end with the current term in January 2003.

As chairman of the Government Reform Subcommittee on Government Management, Information and Technology, Horn instituted a system to grade agencies' preparations for the year 2000 rollover. He took the chairman's seat on the subcommittee in 1996 and began monitoring federal computer security efforts.

Earlier this year, Horn assumed leadership of the Government Reform Subcommittee on Government Efficiency, Financial Management and Intergovernmental Relations.

He has continued to play a significant role in overseeing federal IT efforts.

Horn, 70, was elected to Congress in 1992.
