This will confirm a telephone convexaaston I have had
with Mr. McAteer. I would li i0 request
that the proposal to create a idge Basi be indefinitely
deferred, but we will probably Clarr" -ring it up in
April or May depending upon how matters proceed with
the legislature on getting the Ridge area expanded.
This is going to involve enough time and will have an
effect upon the final decision on the Ridge Basin so it
seems to me to be appropriate to wait until action on
that legislation is relatively well established.
In the meantime I will be discussing our thinking with
Sonny Vergara and will see how much of an accommodation
we can actually reach on factual material.
Best Wishes for a Happy New Year!
