Updates from NPR on the Trump rally shooting and assassination attempt

California Energy

In its first three months, the administration of President Bush has kept its distance from the power problems of California -- making clear it wanted the state to work out its own problems. But today the president issued a directive to federal agencies in that state instructing them to turn off escalators and keep air conditioning at a low level this summer. President Bush also used the occasion to restate the government's commitment to conservation as a key element of its policy for controlling energy costs and avoiding shortfalls. NPR's Don Gonyea reports from the White House.
