Short: Reno urges online terrorism bill

Attorney General Janet Reno urged Congress to approve a $1.1 billion to fight the threat of online terrorism. President Clinton asked for the extra funds as part of a plan to tighten security at airports and federal buildings. Reno said the money would double FBI agents assigned to counterterrorism, create a computer investigations and threat assessment center, and expand the number of U.S. attorneys responsible for prosecuting terrorism cases, according to Reuters.
