Horn Issues New Federal Government Report Card:
Washington Agencies Average D-, FAA and DOD Receive F's

On March 4, 1998 Congressman Steven Horn (R-Ca) issued his third annual grades for Y2K preparedness among the federal agencies. The analysis was based upon agency data as of February 15, 1998. In all, twenty-four agencies were assessed.

At a press conference this morning, Congressman Horn used strong words to emphasize the scope of the problem. He called the executive branch "on the edge of failure", and said that it was time for everyone "to start sweating" about the Year 2000 status of the Department of Defense. Horn also redefined his goal for the Federal Government: "to make certain that the most important systems at the most critical agencies can function in the new century".
