In an excerpt from the session of the House of Representatives, members debated an amendment to the Energy Appropriations bill that would remove funding for the super conducting super collider program under construction in Texas. Opponents of the project cite cost overruns and skyrocketing construction estimates, which have doubled to over $11 billion since the inception of the project.
