The FIRE Bill ( HR 1168) has been introduced in the House and referred to the Science Committee for an unknown period of time. Needless to say it has along way to go to become a law. Then funding must be authorized by Congress. The last estimates that I saw was possibly FY 2001.
Much support is still needed. As of last week there was not a sponsor in the Senate. Sorry, this is probably not what you wanted to hear.

The last that I heard there was 170 co-sponsors in the House. It will not be heard by the Senate unless the House passed it and sends it to the Senate. But, it will take a lot of backing in the Senate if and when it gets there.
