    (d) Federal. State, and local govern-ments are to share the responsibility for conservntlon of the Nation's tele-communication.'! resources. Although the President hns responsibility for es-tablishing national objectives, local conditions nnd relative urgency would determine the order and level of prece-dence within priorities.

    ( 1 J The achievement of survival nnd recovery would establish an unavoid-able Interdependence between and 11.mong Federal.

    (2) The Federal Government will rely upon State governmenlc; and their telecommunications management or-ganl7.atlons for management or control of Intrastate carrier services and conti-nuity of Interconnectivity with Inter-state carriers to assure that national objectives and priorities are properly served.

    There will be a central authority within the Federal Government to control, coordinate, and direct the ac-tivities of the Nation's telecommunlca-tlonc; facilities, systems, and services.

    (f) Telecommunications resources or the Federal Government will be em-ployed. as required, to best serve the continuity of government and national Interests.

    (g) A system of communications services priorities will be established which will facllltate early restoration of services considered vital to national Interests.

    There will · be a precedence system for the expeditious hnndllng of telephone calls, messages. and data transmission via government and public correspondence facllltes.

    Federal agencies will, In the de-velopment of emergency operational plans, minimize, to the extent feasible, dependence upon telecommunications services for continuity of essential op-erations.
