WASHINGTON, D.C. - Science Committee Chairman Sherwood Boehlert (R-NY) today issued the following statement on the release of the Interim Report of the National Academy of Science's Committee on the Assessment of Options for Extending the Life of the Hubble Space Telescope:

"I am very pleased that the Academy has put out such a clear, succinct and timely Interim Report. I wholeheartedly endorse its recommendations. We will continue to work with NASA to see that the agency keeps all its options open concerning a Hubble mission and sets aside the funding needed to carry out any mission, whether manned or robotic."
