(Studio) Congress conference committee on energy bill deadlocks again.
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(DC) Deadlock with regard to Senator position for banning for low-m.p.g. cars and House adoption of Carter gas guzzler tax. [Senator Howard METZENBAUM - believes Senator version stronger than House version.] House energy chairperson Thomas Ashley says Senator plan could result in AMC, smallest of big 4 auto mfrs., being pushed against wall trying to meet standards. [ASHLEY - isn't persuaded that energy savings projected by Senator would be realized.] Ashley says work on energy plan just about on schedule.
REPORTER: Nelson Benton

(DC) White House spokesperson Jody Powell says president is serious about not going on planned world trip in November if energy bill not passed. House leaders meet with president and later, Representative John Brademas says it may take into December to get energy bill. Speaker Tip O'Neill is more optimistic. [O'NEILL - thinks there'll be energy bill within next 2-3 weeks, but won't say what bill will be.] Representatives say Carter doesn't bring up subject of deadline in meeting with them, but later, he mentions it in meeting with Saudi Arabia foreign minister Saud al-Faisal. [CARTER - looks forward to being in Saudi Arabia if United States gets energy bill at last of November] prince Saud's comments on Mid. East, with regard to Israeli refusal to deal with PLO, noted. Seems Arabs and Israelis as far apart on that as White House and Congress are on energy.
