The House of Representatives today passed a spending bill that contains funding for a raft of cyber-security and online crime-fighting initiatives. The House voted 411-15 to approve the Commerce-Justice-State (CJS) appropriations bill, a 2002 spending package that includes funding for programs to fight cyber-crime, child pornography, and intellectual property theft. The package also includes money for technology research programs.

    The bill directs U.S. attorneys to provide a total of $10 million for cyber-crime and enforcement against intellectual property violations, such as software piracy.

    It also includes a dramatic boost in funding for the Commerce Department's Advanced Technology Program, which provides support for moving experimental technologies from the laboratory into the marketplace.
