-- An April 7 Business article about financial oversight misspelled the name of University of Maryland law professor Michael Greenberger.

-- An April 5 A-section article misstated when Barack Obama made a remark concerning NASA's manned spaceflight program and getting a "better bang for the buck." Then-Sen. Obama made the remark in May 2008.

-- A March 12 A-section article on changes in federal requirements for public disclosure of releases of toxic chemicals gave an incorrect year for the establishment of a rule that companies must report all releases of 500 pounds or more. That rule was adopted by the Environmental Protection Agency in 1994.

-- A Feb. 23 Page One article about the Chandra Levy case incorrectly said that Levy was from the congressional office of then-Rep. Gary A. Condit (D-Calif.). Levy was from Condit's congressional district and worked as an intern at the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
