AGENCIES GET NEW REPORT CARDS ON Y2K READINESS
Saying "the picture is a gloomy one," Congressman Stephen Horn, chair of
the House subcommittee responsible for overseeing government progress on
averting the Y2K problem, has given out new report cards to federal
agencies. Three departments flunked: Justice Health & Human Services
and State. The Defense Department gets a D-minus. Three departments
get A grades: Small Business Administration Social Security
Administration and the National Science Foundation. The Social
Security Administration began working on the problem in 1989, eight
years before most other government agencies. (USA Today 24 Nov 98)
