New Bush space speech planned UPI

President George W. Bush plans to make a major speech early this summer defending his plan for a new U.S. space exploration initiative, administration sources told United Press International.
Sources said although drafting the speech — termed a vigorous call to support the president’s new space exploration policy he announced last January — has not yet begun, aides have been narrowing prospective dates and venues.
The speech apparently will be timed to coincide with a report by the presidential commission appointed earlier this year to review the space plan and seek broad public comment.
