NSF NETS "VIRTUAL MONEY" FOR NGI
U.S. Senate and House conferees on the National Science Foundation's 1998
budget have allocated $23 million for the Clinton Administration's
Next-Generation Internet project, to be funded from the $50 annual fee
collected by Network Solutions Inc. for registering Internet domain names.
The $23 million will cover NSF's $10 million request to Congress and $13
million it hoped to get from the Department of Energy to foster university
relations.  Last week DOE's request for $35 million for the NGI was zeroed
out by its spending panel.  (Science 3 Oct 97)
