Alabama senator Hillary Herbert & birds with teeth

 I just watched the American Experience special called Dinosaur Wars about
Cope and Marsh. Towards the end, it mentioned that an Alabama senator
Hillary Herbert used Marsh's birds with teeth monograph as an example of
waste of taxpayers money. The USGS budget was ultimately cut
in half and the department of paleontology was eliminated. Does anyone
have any references about this story? Cutting science budgets has a long
history is the USA!
