Exchange With Reporters Following a United States Court of Appeals Decision on Oil Import Fees.
August 11, 1975

REPORTER. Any thoughts on the court ruling this morning on the constitutionality of your oil tariff?

THE PRESIDENT. We are analyzing, of course, the decision by the Circuit Court of Appeals, and I will not know until later this afternoon what the Departmentof Justice and what my White House Counsel will recommend. But sometime this afternoon, I can give you a decision.

Q. Was there a thought of taking that off anyway when decontrols lapsed?

THE PRESIDENT. That, of course, is an option that exists, and I have indicated on several occasions that we had a number of administrative options, and that is in the group that we will have to look at if and when we decontrol, which we probably will.
REPORTER. Have a nice game, Mr. President. Thank you.

NOTE: The President spoke at 11:12 a.m. at the Vail Golf Course, Vail, Colo. The decision by the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit held that the President had no constitutional authority to impose a fee on oil imports.

On August 14, 1975, Solicitor General Robert H. Bork announced that the Government would request that the Supreme Court review the decision of the Court of Appeals.
