Steps on the road to the SSC.

Steps on the road to the SSC

With the decision on where to build the $5.3 billion Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) less than two months away, delegations from the seven contending states (SN: 1/30/88, p.68) met last week with Energy Secretary John S. Herrington to plead their cases. Later this month, Herrington will receive a confidential report from a department task force outlining in more detail the strengths and weaknesses of the various state proposals. Drafts of environmental impact statements for each site were released last August. The task force will receive public comment on the evaluations this month and issue a final report in December.
