House restores some e-gov funding in CR—Federal News Radio

Several of the Obama administration’s openness and transparency initiatives may be getting a reprieve. The House Appropriations Committee included $17 million for the E-Government Fund in the latest continuing resolution to fund the government for the rest of fiscal 2011. It still is far below the $35 million the administration requested and below the $20 million the Senate approved, but it will stave off the need to shut down eight sites and one initiative starting in May.
