Bentsen votes no SST
and gives reason why
WASHINGTON D. C. - I
voted against continued Federal
funding of the SST because
primarily I think It k an
economically unsound invest-
ment of taxpayers' money. It is
projected that the SST will cost
approximately one-third more
per teat mMe to operate than
subsonic Jets. I don't believe that
travellers will be willing to pay
that kind of premium to save
less than three hours on a flight
The timing (or Ma construe-
tlon could hardly be worse. With
airline debts and operating losses
at an historic high to burden
airline operations with billions
of dollars of investment In a
basically inefficient plane does-
n't make sense.
The argument that the Rus-
sians an the French' WW get
ahead or the United States
doesn't add up. I remember the
big lead which the British had
with the Comet but a few yean
later when we solved many of
the major technological prob-
lems and the industry could use
it the United States moved in
with a much more efficient
aircraft to capture the market.
When the SST Is made econom-
ically practical and feasible I
have confidence that the United
States can and will meet the

The airlines are unprepared to
absorb the cost of the SST now
or In the immediate future.
Some lines are already cancelling
ordcre for the 747 and many of
the airlines today are flying with
less than 80 percent loads; how
can we expect them to buy a
new generation of aircraft. At a
Mme of a substantial deficit in
the national budget and national
needs of much greater algnifl-

extravagancy of the taxpayers1
If indeed private industry
cannot afford completion of the
project after expenditure of over
$888 million or taxpayers'
monies it has failed the test of
I listened to all the arguments
emotional and reasoned. I voted
against the continued spending
for the SST because I thought It
