However, Chairman Peler W. :llodino, D-N.J., said he has not ruled out the possibility that an arrangement for committee ac- cess to Ihe material can be worked oul with Special Prose- cutor Leon Jaworski. And Rep. Tom Railsback, R- .111., has prepared a bill ,that would.require Jaworski to give llie committee any evidence that could be used in the jm- peachmenl investigation. Rodino has set a target dale of late April for completing Ihe commitlee's investigation but the schedule is based on access by the comniitlee lo malerial gathered in other investigations into Watergate and related mailers.

Jackson said lie would also ask the companies lo disclose the total yaluc or tax breaks given big oil. Senate Finance chairman Itussell li. Long, D-La., who last mouth led a filibuster against emergency energy leg- islation because of a provision to limit excess profits by the oil industry, said he would be will- ing to support legislation that would induce the com- panies to turn their attention lo exploration and development at home. The emergency bill, which would give President Nixon power to order gas rationing and mandatory energy con- scrvalicn measures, remained stalled by (lie continuing threat of a filibuster bv Republicans and oil-slate senators who op- pose the excess profits provi- sion. Long said lie would not join the filibuster this lime, bul other senators vowed to stop Ihe bill from ever coming to a vole. Jackson, who is llie bill's door manager, said a vote oa shutting off debate would come early next week. After executives from the seven leading oil firms told his subcommittee that the United .Stales would require up to -.15 years lo become self-sufficient in energy, even the in- milive of high oil prices, Jack- son said a rollback in the price of crude oil was called .for.
