I am sad to report that the latest rumor is that the Senate side is also drafting termination language. The final conference report language may be done by tomorrow.

The text of Senator B. Johnston's statement is appended below.

When Conference text is available, we will distribute it.


Statement of Sen. Bennett Johnston On the House vote regarding the SSC

Today is a sad day for science. The demise of the SSC undoubtedly will mean the demise of other good science projects. How can this country begin another big science projects if this successful project is terminated 10 years and $2 billion after its inception?

The House was wrong, but they have a right to be wrong. Their message on deficit reduction and the SSC was clear and unmistakable. The conference must find ways to accommodate this message.
