A report for a unique target audience, formerly unavailable to the general public, this short brief was prepared by the esteemed Library of Congress Congressional Research Service as a fast overview of the House and Senate's historical involvement in Solar Power Satellite work. Imagine being a congressperson back in the day when things were planned to be built for the general population instead of just destroyed to placate angry constituents, in those days congressional workers needed fast facts to be assembled for reading on the run between meetings. Because of the target it is not very technical and instead focuses on history of funding. It is FASCINATING in that it shows the interest of the Legislators in relation to the near lack of interest of NASA, ERDA/DOE and the NSF. Because the original printout was made on a shoddy government printer, we have hand-transcribed a full copy of the text in this release along with the scanned pages. Highly recommended for the "meta" of SPS.
