  STATEMENT BY PRESIDENT CLINTON REGARDING THE DECISION
  TO STOP DEGRADING GPS ACCURACY AT MIDNIGHT TONIGHT (5/1/00)

  "Today, I am pleased to announce that the United States
will stop the intentional degradation of the Global Positioning
System (GPS) signals available to the public beginning at
midnight tonight.  We call this degradation feature Selective
Availability (SA).  This will mean that civilian users of GPS
will be able to pinpoint locations up to ten times more
accurately than they do now....."
