Supposed to helicopter to Baltimore for some appearances & lunch re the enterprise zone program. Baltimore on its own had done a remarkable job combining city, state & private effort. Trip cancelled—no fly weather. The Mayor and his group drove here for lunch. Early in day met with U.S. Chamber group. They made an impassioned plea that I not raise any taxes. They were touching a nerve when they said I would look as if I were retreating from my own program. That’s exactly how I feel. After meeting told Ed, Jim & Mike we had to go back to the drawing board. I just cant hold still for the tax increases. We’ll go at it again in the morning. An N.S.C. meeting we decided to go back to the law of the sea negotiations but make it plain we could not accept their proposals on sea bottom mining etc.
