George W. Bush is set to sign into law Monday a bill that would allow shipments of civil nuclear fuel and technology to India in return for India's allowing safeguards at nuclear plants. The administration has said that the landmark US-India nuclear cooperation bill reflects the growing importance of India as a partner and ally. Congress overwhelmingly approved the nuclear bill on Dec. 9.

Bush's signature would change US law, but several steps remain before civil nuclear shipments could begin.
