Seventeen years after the Year 2000 bug came and went, the federal
government will finally stop preparing for it.
The Trump administration announced Thursday that it would eliminate
dozens of paperwork requirements for federal agencies, including an
obscure rule that requires them to continue providing updates on their
preparedness for a bug that afflicted some computers at the turn of the
century. As another example, the Pentagon will be freed from a
requirement that it file a report every time a small business vendor is
paid, a task that consumed some 1,200 man-hours every year.
