SECRETARY OF ENERGY RESPONDS TO HOUSE VOTE ON SUPER COLLIDER

 SECRETARY OF ENERGY RESPONDS TO HOUSE VOTE ON SUPER COLLIDER
 WASHINGTON, June 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The following statement was issued by Secretary of Energy James D. Watkins following a vote today by the House of Representatives to eliminate funding for the Superconducting Super Collider:
 "I am deeply disappointed by the House action. It does not demonstrate good stewardship of our nation's scientific and technology research base that the public has entrusted to the government. While I am painfully aware of the environment of severe fiscal constraint, it would nonetheless be a major mistake to eliminate this project. As President Bush has said, 'It is a crucial investment in our nation's scientific, technological and economic future... We cannot afford to relinquish our leadership in science and technology. Our nation's economic competitiveness and standard of living depends on it.'
 "Cancellation would also result in a loss of over 7,800 current first-tier jobs. Obviously, today's vote complicates securing the international participation in the project that would have the advantage of reducing the cost to the U.S. I trust that funding for the project will be restored as the appropriations process continues."
