If the Open Access News blog is so full of news these days that you
can't read every item, then let me draw special attention to this one
from yesterday:

Victory for the NIH plan in the House

By an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 388-13 the House of
Representatives tonight adopted the appropriations bill for the
Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, and
related agencies (H.R. 5006). The bill includes the directive to the NIH
to develop an open-access plan by December 1, 2004.  On to the Senate!
