Why isn't the practice of law prohibited completely in his case? Who are these people and interests that Senator Allott would be rendering advice and offering counsel to?

Is there any chance that these interests, either presently or some time in the future, might have a stake in the freight rate structure study?

Do any of these interests have some connection with oil shale in Colorado who could have a substantial stake in freight rates some time in the future?

Does Senator Allott foresee a time during the performance of his contract that he will be compensated by these interests for his advice or counsel?

Why doesn't the contract bar his ability to be compensated for such advice and counsel?

I also understand that Senator Allott is the Executor of an estate. Would you provide the Subcommittee with an inventory of that estate and provide your analysis and assurances that Senator Allott's position as Executor would not represent a conflict of interest?

Can the contract be cancelled for default? Section I, Subsection (h) states that the contract could be terminated by reason of default of the contract. However, Section Q, Article 13, which would have given the government the right to inspect and evaluate the work being performed by the contractor, is deleted.

Under conditions where the contract calls for no set product under any certain time frame and, moreover, where the government is prohibited from inspecting the progress of the work being performed; how can the contract be cancelled for default of the contractor? The government seems to have no protection under the contract and, as you will recall, the Subcommittee has raised this question a number of times during investigation of the contract.

Where is the cost breakdown in the contract? I am referring to your letter of March 29, 1973 in which you assured me that, “Cost estimates would be shown in the definitive contract.” A careful reading of the contract reveals there is no cost breakdown.

I urge you to give consideration to these issues and questions before signing the definitized contract. I would appreciate answers to the questions as soon as possible as I am considering proposing an amendment to the Interstate Commerce Commission budget in the pending Transportation Appropriation bill if I am still not satisfied. Thank you for your kind attention. Sincerely,

John D. DINGELL, Chairman, Subcommittee on Activities of Regulatory Agencies.
