WASHINQTON (UPI) - Rep. Philip
Ruppe said yesterday he has been ad-
vised that the House Armer Services
next week will cut the Navy's funding
request for Project Seafarer from $40.5
million to $10 million - with none of the
money to be used in Michigan.
The Houghton Republican, a long-
time Seafarer opponent, said he_ has
learned that the committee will direct
the Navy to use the money for research
and development only at its existing
facility in Clam Lake, Wis.
I'M EXTREMELY pleased that the
House committee has removed

Michigan as a site for the project,"
Ruppe said. "Now it is up to the Senate
to uphold the House committee's ac-
tion."
A spokesperson for Ruppe said the
committee's report on Seafarer funding
will be made public next week after
"some minor adjustments" are made.
The Navy was seeking $45.5 million
for the coming fiscal year to continue
research and development of a so-
called scaled-downversion of Project
Seafarer in Michigan's Upper Penin-
sula and northern Wisconsin.
Project Seafarer involves the use of
buried cable to communicate with
nuclear submarines.
