The President's Talking Points
Talking Points for the 5:30 Meeting on May 1 Energy
1. Rog Morton, I understand that Frank

Frank should bring us up to date on these discussions.
2. Would anyone else like to add their
views on the current situation?
3. Frank, why don't you go over the options in the paper
and generally describe the advantages and disadvantages
