by Sabrina I. Pacifici on June 22, 2005

As part of FY2006 Appropriations, specified in House Report 109-119 – Department of Defense Appropriations Bill, the Public Interest Declassification Board (PIDB), created five years ago, and comprised of a nine member advisory panel, by next week may actually obtain approval for operational funds, which it has not had since its establishment in 2000. The House Committee on Appropriations “directs that from amounts available in Operation and Maintenance, Defense-Wide, $1,000,000 shall be available for the Public Interest Declassification Board.” [FAS]
