 legislation does three things:  Section 1 expands the program;                
 Section 2 sets deadlines for part of the program; and Section 3               
 also extends the deadline.  In Section 3 the deadlines for the                
 upgrading and closure sections will be set for December 31, 1994.

 Judiciary version are exactly alike.
