The Senate passed its FY 2002 Energy and Water Development Appropriations bill on July 19. The Senate bill, S. 1171, would provide more funding (a total of $3,268.1 million) for DOE's Office of Science than would the White House or the House bill. Even so, in their committee report accompanying the bill, Senate appropriators remarked that "the relatively small funding increases provided to the Office of Science are inadequate." Selected language from the report, S. Rpt. 107-39, is provided below.
