The measure gives Nixon Broad Powers to Deal with the Energy crisis but was amended by the House to prohibit allocation of fuels for busing children beyond neighbourhood schools and to Cut off All Petroleum exports for military use in Indochina another amendment would give either House of Congress 15 Days in which to veto by majority vote any administration plan to ration gasoline or other fuels Senate House conferees Are expected to Start work monday on resolving the Many differences both versions would give the president such Powers As rationing gasoline and making a ban on sunday gasoline sales compulsory. Clean air standards could be waived to permit burning of dirtier fuel reductions in Speed limits thermostat restrictions in both Public and private offices and curtailment of hours in schools and other institutions would be authorized.
