NASA budget gets $1 billion

President Clinton has signed into law an appropriations bill that restores roughly $1 billion to NASA's fiscal 2000 budget, sparing the agency from scaling back science and computer infrastructure programs, a NASA official said.

Clinton late last month signed the appropriations bill for the Veterans Affairs Department, Housing and Urban Development Department and independent agencies.

The act brought NASA's 2000 budget back to $13.65 billion after a House subcommittee in July passed a bill that would have slashed the agency's budget by 11 percent.

'We're pleased with the bill, especially because it lets us continue with our information technology investments,' said Lee B. Holcomb, NASA's chief information officer.
