House Rejects Price-Walsh Amendment

On July 13, 1999, the House Appropriations Committee rejected (33 to 25) the Price-Walsh Amendment, a proposal that would have delayed implementation of the data access law for one year while a "study" was performed. A substitute amendment sponsored by Rep. Mollohan was also defeated.

On July 15, 1999, the full House passed the Treasury and Postal Service funding bill, which provides continued funding to OMB for implementation of the 1998 data access law. Neither the Price-Walsh Amendment nor other legislation to delay OMB's revision to Circular A-110 was introduced on the floor.
