In the article "Spotlight falls on science policy" (News and Comment, 10 May, p. 691) by Mark H. Crawford, the findings of a General Accounting Office report on the operating costs of the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF) were overstated. The report found that the Department of Energy's operating costs would rise by $80 million if both CEBAF and the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider are constructed. CEBAF's operating cost is estimated to be $30 million. The report also found problems in accommodating the operating costs of the proposed Superconducting Super Collider in the department's budget.
