Congress approves supercomputing bill

Silicon Graphics News

Congress passed a bill Wednesday for $165 million in new supercomputing funding in the United States, a move that came a week after a report criticized current supercomputing as insufficient for the country’s security needs.
The bill, called the Department of Energy High-End Computing Revitalization Act of 2004, now needs the signature of President Bush to become law. The president is expected to sign the bill, a representative of the House Science Committee said.
