Senate passes e-gov bill

The Senate unanimously approved

e-government legislation to create an Office of Electronic Government within the Office of Management and Budget and establish a four-year, $345 million fund for interagency projects.


The fund would receive $45 million in the first year, fiscal 2003, the same amount as President Bush requested in his budget proposal.

With the passage of S. 803, "we come a step closer to achieving the important goal of providing Americans the same 24-7 access to government information and services that is now available to them from the private sector," said Sen. Joseph Lieberman, D-Conn., co-sponsor of the bill.
