Member shall be calculated in accordance with their Proportionate Interests and,
thereafter, the Capital Account of each Member shall be maintained as set forth
above.

        (b) This Section 4.5 is intended to satisfy the requirements of Section 
704(b) of the Code and Regulations Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv) and shall be so 
construed and, if necessary, modified, to cause the allocation of profits, 
losses, income gain and credit under Article 10, to have substantial economic 
effect under such sections of the Code and Regulations, and in the event of any 
conflict between the provisions of this Section 4.5 and such Regulation, the 
Regulations shall control.

        (c) In the event any interest in the Company is transferred in 
accordance with the terms of this Agreement, the transferee shall succeed to the
Capital Account of the transferor to the extent it relates

                                           separately filed with the Commission.

to the transferred interest and the Company's books shall be closed so that Net 
Profits, Net Losses, credits and distributions can be attributed to the Members 
based on their interests in the Company when items were actually received, paid 
or incurred.

        (d) Except as otherwise provided herein, no Member shall be entitled to 
withdraw all or any portion of its Capital Contribution or receive interest on 
its contributed capital or Capital Account.

        4.6 Liability Limited to Capital Contributions. The liability of each 
Member shall be limited to its Capital Contributions. Except as provided in 
Section 4.1, neither of the Members shall have any further personal liability to
contribute money to the Company or with respect to any liability or obligation 
of the Company.

                            ARTICLE 5. -- ADVANCES

        5.1 Advances Not Capital Contributions. If either Member advances funds 
to the Company, other than as a contribution to capital pursuant to this 
Agreement, the amount of such advance shall not be deemed a Capital Contribution
unless the Members unanimously and expressly agree otherwise. The amount of any 
such advance shall be a debt due from the Company to such Member and, except as 
otherwise expressly provided in Section 5.2 or elsewhere in this Agreement or as
agreed at the time such funds are advanced, shall be repaid upon demand to such 
Member with interest at a rate of six percent (6%) per annum.

        5.2 Repayments of Advances. All advances specified in this Article 5 and
other debt due from the Company to the Members shall be paid by the Company to 
the respective Members, subject to any agreement to the contrary entered into in
connection with the making of the relevant advance and unless otherwise provided
herein, in proportion to the Members' Proportionate Interests.

                   ARTICLE 6. -- DISTRIBUTIONS OF CASH AND 
                       ALLOCATIONS OF PROFITS AND LOSSES

        6.1 Distributions. Except as provided in Article 9, the Management
  Committee shall distribute to the Members from time to time the amount of all
  Distributable Cash. Distributable Cash shall be defined as and limited to the
  excess of charter hire revenues over Company cash operating costs, but shall
* not exceed REDACTED in any year. Any Distributable Cash shall be distributed
  subject to Section 18-607 of the Act to the Members ratably in accordance with
  each Member's Proportionate Interest.

        6.2 Net Profits or Net Losses. "Net Profits" and "Net Losses" mean, for 
each Fiscal Year of the Company, an amount equal to the Company's taxable income
or loss for such year determined in accordance with Code Section 703(a) plus any
non-taxable income and reduced by any non-deductible expenses and capital 
expenditures. For this purpose, all items of income, gain, loss, or deduction 
required to be stated separately pursuant to Code Section 703(a)(1) shall be 
included in taxable income or loss.

        6.3 Allocations of Net Profits and Net Losses. The Net Profits and Net 
Losses of the

Company shall be allocated to the Members ratably in accordance with each 
Member's Proportionate Interest.

     6.4 Tax Allocations: Section 704(c). If any Company asset has a book value 
different than its adjusted tax basis to the Company for federal income tax 
purposes (whether by reason of the contribution of such property to the Company,
the revaluation of such property hereunder or otherwise) allocations of income, 
gain, loss, deduction, credit and tax preference under this Section 6.4 with 
respect to such asset shall take account of any variation between the adjusted 
tax basis of such asset for federal income tax purposes and its book value in 
the manner prescribed by Section 704(c) of the Code or the principles set forth 
in 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv)(g) of the Regulations, as the case may be, using the 
remedial allocation method set forth in 1.704-3(d) of the Regulations.

     6.5 Authority to Vary Allocations. (a) It is the intent of the Members that
each Member's allocable share of Net Profit and Net Losses (or items thereof)
shall be determined and allocated in accordance with this Article 6 except to
the extent such allocations would not comply with Section 704(b) of the Code. In
order to preserve and protect the determinations and allocations provided for in
this Article 6, the Management Committee, upon the advice of the Company's tax
counsel, is hereby authorized and directed to allocate Net Profits and Net
Losses (or items thereof) arising in any year in a manner different than
otherwise provided for in this Article 6, but only to the extent that the
allocation of Net Profits and Net Losses (or items thereof) in the manner
provided for in this Article 6 would otherwise be inconsistent with Section
704(b) of the Code. Any allocation made pursuant to this Section 6.5 shall be
done only in accordance with the standards and procedures set forth in this
Section 6.5 and shall be deemed to be a complete substitute for any allocation
otherwise provided for in this Article 6 and no amendment of this Agreement
shall be required.

     (b) In making any allocation (the "New Allocation") under this Section 6.5,
the Management Committee is authorized to act only after having been advised in 
writing (a copy of which shall be furnished to each Member) by the Company's tax
counsel that, under Section 704(b) of the Code and the Regulations thereunder:

          (i) the New Allocation is required; and

          (ii) the New Allocation is the minimum modification of the allocations
otherwise provided for in this Article 6 necessary in order to assure that, 
either in the then current year or in any preceding year, each Member's 
allocable share of Net Profits and Net Losses (or items thereof) is determined 
and allocated in accordance with Section 704(b) of the Code and the Regulations 
thereunder.

     (c) If the Management Committee is required by this Section 6.5 to make any
New Allocation in a manner less favorable to a Member than is otherwise provided
for in this Article 6, then the Management Committee is authorized and directed,
insofar as it is advised by the Company's tax counsel that it is permitted by 
Section 704(b) of the Code, to allocate Net Profits and Net Losses (or items 
thereof) arising in later years in such manner so as to bring the allocations to
such Member as nearly as possible to the allocations otherwise contemplated by 
this Article 6.

     (d) New Allocations made by the Management Committee under this Section 6.5
shall be deemed to be made pursuant to the fiduciary obligations of the 
Management Committee to the Company and the Members.

                                               Confidential Treatment Requested.
                                                  The redacted material has been
                                           separately filed with the Commission.

     6.6 Withholding and Payments on Behalf of a Member. The Management 
Committee is hereby authorized to withhold from distributions, or to make 
payments on behalf of a Member in its capacity as such, all amounts that the 
Management Committee is required by law to withhold or pay on behalf of such 
Member (including federal and state income tax withholding, state personal 
property taxes and state unincorporated business taxes). All amounts withheld by
the Company from distributions or paid by the Company on behalf of a Member 
pursuant to the foregoing sentence shall be deemed to have been distributed to 
the Member otherwise entitled to receive the amount so withheld or on whose 
behalf the amount was paid. Each Member shall indemnify the Company for the 
entire amount withheld or paid on behalf of such Member (including interest, 
penalties and related expenses, provided that the Company shall bear any 
interest, penalties and related expenses, to the extent attributable to the 
Company's negligence) and, except as otherwise provided herein, shall hold the 
Company harmless from any liability with respect thereto.

                            ARTICLE 7.--MANAGEMENT

     7.1 Management. Except as otherwise provided herein, the management of the 
  Company shall be vested in the Members of the Company in proportion to their
  respective Proportionate Interests and the decision of the Members having an
* aggregate Proportionate Interest of REDACTED or more shall be controlling.

     7.2 Management Committee. Except for decisions or actions requiring the 
approval of the Members as provided in Section 7.11 of this Agreement or by 
non-waivable provisions of the Act or applicable law, (i) the powers of the 
Company shall be exercised by or under the authority of, and the business and 
affairs of the Company shall be managed under the direction of the Management 
Committee comprised of four individuals, each of whom shall be a United States 
Citizen, three of which shall be appointed by CUSA (the "CUSA Management 
Committee Representatives"), and one of which shall be appointed by NEW WARREN 
(the ""NEW WARREN Management Committee Representative"), and (ii) the Management
Committee may make all decisions and take all actions for the Company as in its 
sole discretion it deems necessary or appropriate to carry out the purposes for 
which the Company is being formed under this Agreement and to further the 
interests of the Members of the Company, including, without limitation, the 
following:

*    REDACTED

     (b) setting aside Reserves, opening and maintaining bank and investment 
accounts and arrangements, drawing checks and other orders for the payment of 
money, and designating individuals with authority to sign or give instructions 
with respect to those accounts and arrangements; and

     (c) collecting sums due to the Company.

     7.3 Appointment, Removal and Replacement. In exercise of their respective 
rights and powers hereunder, CUSA hereby appoints each of D. R. Dunn, M. L.
Lege, and P. R. Breber, as its CUSA Management Committee Representatives and NEW
WARREN hereby appoints Stephen A.

                                               Confidential Treatment Requested.
                                                  The redacted material has been
                                           separately filed with the Commission.

Furbacher as its NEW WARREN Management Committee Representative. CUSA and NEW 
WARREN shall have full authority unilaterally to remove and replace their 
respective representatives to the Management Committee, with or without cause, 
for the purpose of any meeting of the Management Committee.

     7.4 Meetings, Quorum, Vote, Etc. (a) Regular meetings of the Management 
Committee may be held upon at least ten (10) days notice to all representatives 
of the Management Committee at such time and place as shall from time to time be
determined by resolution of the Management Committee. Special meetings of the 
Management Committee may be called by any Management Committee representative on
not less than two (2) business days notice to the other representatives of the 
Management Committee, delivered personally or by facsimile and confirmed by 
telephone. A waiver of notice signed by the person entitled to notice will be
equivalent to the giving of notice. The business transacted at a meeting will be
limited to the purposes stated in the notice of the meeting unless otherwise
approved by all Management Committee representatives. At all properly noticed
meetings of the Management Committee, the presence of a majority of the
Management Committee representatives shall constitute a quorum for the
transaction of business.

     (b) Management Committee representatives may participate in a meeting of 
the Management Committee by means of conference call or any similar 
communications equipment by means of which all persons participating in the 
meeting can hear each other, and participation in a meeting pursuant to this 
provision shall constitute presence in person at such meeting.

     (c) Except as otherwise provided herein, all decisions to be made and 
* actions to be taken by the Management Committee shall be determined REDACTED 
  Management Committee representatives.

     (d) Any action which may be taken at a meeting of the Management Committee 
may be taken without a meeting if a consent in writing, setting forth the action
so taken, is signed by all of the Management Committee representatives.

     7.5 Compensation. (a) Representatives of the Management Committee shall not
receive any salary for their services to the Company. Members may be reimbursed 
by the Company for expenses (including travel expenses) as may be incurred by 
the Management Committee representatives in the performance of their duties 
hereunder (including attendance at meetings of the Management Committee) to the 
extent that such expenses are not accounted for in the cost budget prepared 
under the Time Charter.

     (b) If services are provided to the Company by CUSA employees, such 
services shall be reimbursed by the Company on the basis of actual time plus 
reasonable expenses to the extent that such services are not accounted for in 
the cost budget prepared under the Time Charter.

     7.6 Delegation of Authority and Duties; Officers. (a) The Management 
Committee may appoint and elect (as well as remove or replace with or without 
cause) a President, a Vice President, a Treasurer and a Secretary (collectively 
the "Officers"), provided that no person employed by or associated

or affiliated with NEW WARREN can act on behalf of the Company in the absence of
the President. The compensation, if any, of the Officers shall be set by the 
Management Committee.

     (b) The President, who shall be a U.S. citizen, shall be responsible for 
the day-to-day management of the Company. The initial President shall be D. R.

subject always to the Company budget prepared pursuant to Section 7.9, the 
President shall have the power to act, in the name and on behalf of the Company,
to do all things reasonably necessary for the performance of the Company's 
operations; provided, however, that the President shall not have the power to 
take any of the actions described in Section 7.11 of this Agreement without the 
approval of the Members required thereunder; and provided further that, without 
first having obtained the prior written direction and approval of the Management
Committee or except in the case of an emergency, the President shall not have 
the power to (i) amend, terminate or otherwise change any lease, contract or 
other agreement that has been approved by the Management Committee, (ii) bid any
job or enter into any contract for an amount reasonably expected to exceed 
$100,000, or (iii) enter into any contract or other agreement in the name of
the Company that calls for expenditures by the Company in excess of $100,000 or 
contemplates revenues to the Company of greater than $100,000. The President 
shall keep the Management Committee fully informed of all developments relating 
to the business of the Company and shall meet with the Management Committee from
time to time at the request of the Management Committee. The President shall 
also prepare or cause to be prepared for distribution to the representatives of 
the Management Committee such written reports as the Management Committee may 
from time to time reasonably request.

     (c) The Vice President shall perform such duties and may exercise such 
powers as may be permitted by this Agreement and as may, from time to time, be 
assigned to the Vice President by the Management Committee or the President, to 
the extent the President is delegated such power and duties as provided herein.

     (d) The Secretary, who shall be a U.S. citizen, or the Secretary's 
delegate, shall act as secretary of all meetings of the Members of the Company 
and of the Management Committee unless otherwise decided by the attendees, and

provided for that purpose; shall see that all notices required to be given by 
the Company or the Management Committee are duly given and served; shall have 
charge of the books, records and papers of the Company relating to its

and papers shall be kept at the offices of CUSA) and shall see that the reports,
statements and other documents required by law are properly kept and filed; and

all funds, securities and notes of the Company; receive and give receipts for 
moneys due and payable to the Company from any sources whatsoever; deposit all 
such moneys in the name of the Company in such banks, trust companies or other 
depositaries as shall be selected by the Management Committee against proper 
vouchers, cause such funds to be disbursed by checks or drafts on the authorized
depositaries of the Company signed in such manner as shall be determined by the 
Management Committee and be responsible for the accuracy of the amounts of all 
moneys so disbursed; regularly enter or cause to be entered in books to be kept 
by the Treasurer or under the Treasurer's direction full and adequate account of
all moneys received or paid by the Treasurer for the account of the Company; 
have the right to require from time to time, reports or statements giving such 
information as he may desire with respect to any and all financial

the Management Committee, respectively, shall so require, an account of the 
financial condition of the Company and of all transactions as Treasurer; exhibit
at all reasonable times the books of account and other records to any of the 
representatives of the Management Committee or of any Member upon request at the
office of the Company where such books and records are kept; shall be 
responsible for coordinating the preparation of all tax returns required to be 
filed by the Company; and, in general, perform all other duties commonly 
incident to the office of Treasurer; and shall perform other such duties as from
time to time may be assigned thereto by the Management Committee or by the 
President. The Treasurer shall have no responsibility for any obligation or duty
described above to the extent the Management Committee determines that such 
obligation or duty should be assigned or delegated to any other Person.

     (f) In addition, the Management Committee may, from time to time as it 
deems advisable and by unanimous consent, delegate to one or more persons 
(inclusive of any representative of the Management Committee) such authority and
duties as the Management Committee is granted under this Agreement and not made 
subject to the approval of the Members by this Agreement, and the Management 
Committee shall assign in writing titles (including, without limitation, Vice 
President, Assistant Secretary and Assistant Treasurer) to any such person; 
provided, that no person who is not a U.S. Citizen or who is employed by or
associated or affiliated with NEW WARREN may be delegated any authority or
duties that in any way relate to the exercise of authority or performance of
duties associated with the functions of the President nor can such person act on
behalf of the Company in the absence of the President. Unless the Management
Committee decides otherwise, if the title of any person authorized to act on
behalf of the Company under this Section 7.6 is one commonly used for officers
of a business corporation formed under the Delaware General Corporation Law, the
assignment of such title shall constitute the delegation to such person of the
authority and duties that are normally associated with that office, subject to
any specific delegation of, or restriction on, authority and duties made
pursuant to this Section 7.6. Any number of titles may be held by the same
person. Any delegation pursuant to this Section 7.6(f) may be revoked at any
time by the Management Committee.

     (g) Unless authorized to do so by this Agreement or by the Management 
Committee, no Member, single Management Committee representative, Officer, agent
or employee of the Company shall have any power or authority to bind the Company
in any way, to pledge its credit, or to render it liable pecuniarily for any 
purpose. However, the Company may act by an attorney-in-fact authorized by the 
Management Committee.

     7.7 Liability of Management Committee Representatives. (a) No Management 
Committee representative or Officer shall be personally liable for the debts and
obligations of the Company.

     (b) No Management Committee representative or Officer shall be liable, 
responsible or accountable in damages or otherwise to the Company or any Member 
for any action taken or failure to act (even if such action or failure to act 
constituted the simple negligence of that Management Committee representative) 
on behalf of the Company within the scope of the authority conferred on the 
Management Committee by this Agreement or by law, unless such act or failure to 
act constituted gross negligence or was performed or omitted willfully or 
intentionally in bad faith.

     7.8 Books and Records. The Company shall maintain separate books and 
accounting records in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles 
and accounting policies. Such books and 

                                               Confidential Treatment Requested.

reasonable times at such place as the Management Committee shall designate.

immediately subsequent Fiscal Year, except for the first Fiscal Year of the 
Company, for which the initial budget shall be approved by the Members prior to 
the effective date of this Agreement. In the event the Members fail to approve 
the annual budget on or before December 31 of each year during the term hereof, 
the previous year's budget shall remain in effect until an annual budget is 
approved by the Members. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company may take
such actions and make such expenditures as may be deemed necessary under laws,
rules, regulations, orders or good industry practice, in order to continue the
orderly conduct of the business of the Company and to preserve and maintain the
Barges. The Management Committee shall also prepare quarterly forecasts and
budget revisions as necessary throughout the term of this Agreement.

     7.10 Bank Accounts. All funds of the Company shall be deposited to the
account of the Company in an account to be established at such bank or banks as
the Management Committee may designate. Checks may be drawn on said account or
accounts by signature or signatures of such persons as may be agreed upon by the
Management Committee. The Company may also maintain payroll or other accounts at
such bank or at such branch as the Management Committee may designate, and
checks may be drawn on such accounts by signature or signatures (or facsimile
thereof) of such persons as may be agreed upon the Management Committee.

     7.11  Member Approval for Certain Actions.  Except as otherwise provided in
this Agreement, the unanimous approval of the Members of the Company shall be 
required for the following actions, which are beyond the normal conduct of the 
Company's business:

     9.2  Termination and Winding Up of the Company. (a) If the Company is 
dissolved, an accounting of the Company's assets, liabilities and operations 
through the last day of the month in which the dissolution occurred shall be 
made, and the affairs of the Company shall be wound up and terminated. The 
Management Committee, by unanimous consent, will appoint one or more persons
to serve as the liquidating trustee of the Company; provided, however, the 
Management Committee representative(s) appointed by a Defaulting Member shall
not participate in appointment the liquidating trustee. The liquidating trustee
shall be responsible for winding up and terminating the affairs of the Company
and will determine all matters in connection therewith (including, without
limitation, the arrangements to be made with creditors, to what extent and under
what terms the assets of the Company are to be sold, and the amount or necessity
of cash reserves to cover contingent liabilities) as the liquidating trustee
deems advisable and proper; provided, however, that all decisions of the
liquidating trustee will be made in

                                     -16-

                                               Confidential Treatment Requested.
                                                  The redacted material has been
                                           separately filed with the Commission.

accordance with the fiduciary duty owed by the liquidating trustee to the 
Company and to each of the Members. The assets of the Company will be applied 
and distributed in the following order:

        (1) first, to the payment and discharge of all of the Company's debts 
and liabilities to creditors other than the Members, in the order provided by 
applicable law, and the expenses of liquidation;

        (2) second, to the payment and discharge of all of the Company's debts 
and liabilities to the Members;

        (3) third, to the setting up of such reserves as the liquidating trustee
may deem reasonably necessary for any contingent or unforeseen liabilities of 
the Company, provided that any such reserve shall be paid over by the 
liquidating trustee to an escrow agent who is not affiliated with any Member, 
with instructions to discharge any of the aforementioned liabilities or 
obligations and, at the expiration of such reasonable period as the liquidating 
trustee shall provide, to distribute any balance then remaining in the manner 
hereinafter provided;

        (4) fourth, to the Members to the extent of and in proportion with their
respective positive Capital Accounts, after giving effect to all contributions, 
distributions and allocations for all periods; and

        (5) fifth, the remainder, if any, to the Members in proportion to their 
respective Proportionate Interest as in effect at the moment of the event giving
rise to such dissolution.
  
In the event of a distribution of assets in kind, the assets shall be deemed 
distributed as if they had been sold immediately prior to their distribution for
their fair market value, and the amount of the distribution will be the fair 
market value (net of liabilities) of the assets distributed.

        (b) After all of the assets of the Company have been distributed, the 
Members shall cause a certificate of cancellation for the Company to be filed 
with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware in accordance with Section 
18/203 of the Act.

        9.3 Accounting. The liquidating trustee will provide the Members with a 
proper accounting of the assets, liabilities and operations of the Company 
through the last day of the month in which the final liquidating distribution 
occurs.

*       9.4 Bankruptcy of a Member. (a) Subject to the REDACTED rights set forth
in Sections 8.2 and 8.3 above, in the event of the Bankruptcy of either Member,
the Non-Bankrupt Member shall have the option (exercisable by giving notice to
such Bankrupt Member within 45 days after the Company receives notice of the
event giving rise to this option) to purchase all (but not less than all) of the
Bankrupt Member's interest in the Company at a price that represents the fair
market value of the Bankrupt Member's interest in the Company.

        (b) The price for the interest of the Bankrupt Member purchased by the 
Non-Bankrupt

Member shall be payable in cash upon receipt of a proper written assignment of 
such interest to the Non-Bankrupt Member.

        9.5 Defaulting Member. (a) Either Member (the "Defaulting Member") 
causing a dissolution pursuant to Sections 9.1(b)(4), (5) or (6), without the 
prior written consent of the other Member, shall have breached this Agreement 
and the other Member shall have the right to damages for such breach and any 
distributions to which the Defaulting Member would have been entitled shall be 
reduced by such damages that are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction
to be owed by the Defaulting Member and paid instead to the other Member.

        (b) The Defaulting Member and its Management Committee representative(s)
shall have no rights under this Agreement to participate in the Management 
Committee or otherwise participate in the Company's performance.

        (c) The Defaulting Member shall be deemed as of the date of the Event of
Dissolution ("Default Date") to have (i) offered to the Member not in default 
(the "Non-Defaulting Member"), the opportunity to purchase all (but not less 
than all) of the Defaulting Members interest in the Company at a price that 
represents the fair market value of the Defaulting Members interest in the 
Company and (ii) waived all rights or claims it may have against the Company.

The Non-Defaulting Member shall have 30 days to accept, in full and not in part,
such offer. Upon notification to the Defaulting Member by the Non-Defaulting
Member of its acceptance of the deemed offer and the tender by the Non-
Defaulting Member to the Defaulting Member of immediately available funds equal
to the offer price, the Defaulting Member shall be deemed to have transferred
its interest in the Company to the Non-Defaulting Member and shall cease to have
any rights of a Member under this Agreement, but without prejudice to any right
of the Non-Defaulting Member to damages from the Defaulting Member. If within
the aforementioned 30 day period, the Non-Defaulting Member fails to notify the
Defaulting Member of the Non-Defaulting Member's desire to exercise its right to
purchase the Defaulting Member's interest in the Company, then the Members shall
be deemed to have consented to the dissolution and liquidation of the Company.

                          ARTICLE 10. -- TAXES, ETC.

        10.1 Sole Responsibility. Each Member of the Company shall be solely 
responsible for and shall pay its own taxes, licenses and fees of any nature and
shall indemnify the other Member therefrom.

        10.2 Reports. The Management Committee shall cause the Company to send 
to each Person who was a Member at any time during the preceding Fiscal Year.

        (a) Within 90 days following the end of each Fiscal Year, a Company 
balance sheet as of the end of such Fiscal Year, Company statements of income, 
cash flows, changes in Members equity and changes in Members' Capital Accounts 
for such Fiscal Year, each of which shall be prepared in accordance with 
generally accepted accounting principles consistently applied.

        (b) Within 150 days following the end of each Fiscal year, (i) a report 
containing a reconciliation between the financial information contained in the 
annual report and the information received for federal and state income tax 
returns, and (ii) an Information Form K-1 providing sufficient

information to enable such Person to complete on a proper and timely basis its 
federal and state income tax returns.

     10.3 Supplemental and Interim Reports. In addition to providing the annual 
information required by Section 10.2, the Management Committee shall timely 
provide to Members any other information or reports reasonably necessary for (a)
the preparation of any tax returns which must be filed by such Member, including
information necessary for estimating and paying estimated taxes under Code 
Section 6654(c)(2) or 6655(c)(2), as applicable, or corresponding provisions of 
other tax laws, or (b) compliance with other laws and regulations. The 
Management Committee shall also supply to Members in a timely manner all reports
or other documents received from time to time by the Company related to any 
insurance the Company is required to carry pursuant to this Agreement and any 
material agreements to which the Company is a party. Each Member shall have the 
right to require the Company to supply it, from time to time, with such other 
reports as in its reasonable discretion would allow it to monitor the Company's 
business activities.

     10.4 Tax Elections. The Company shall make the election referred to in Code
Section 754 and the Regulations issued thereunder upon the request of any Member
in connection with a transfer of the Member's interest in the Company and upon
the written consent of a majority in interest of the Members. The Management
Committee shall timely make or revoke all elections, and take all tax reporting
positions, necessary or desirable for the Company and to maximize the tax
benefits to the Members, including making elections under Code Section 168 (to
maximize depreciation deductions), Code Section 195 (to amortize start up
expenditures) and Code Section 709 (to amortize organizational expenditures). No
election shall be made by any Member to have the Company excluded from the
application of any provision of Subchapter K of the Code or any equivalent tax
provision in any other tax jurisdiction.

     10.5 Consistent Reporting. Each Member shall, on the Member's tax returns, 
treat each partnership item (as defined in Code Section 6231(a)(3)) in a manner 
consistent with the treatment of the item on the Company's return in all 
respects, including the amount, timing and characterization of the item. No 
Member shall file a request for an administrative adjustment of partnership 
items for any Company taxable year under Code Section 6227 if such request would
cause the Member's treatment of the item to be inconsistent with the treatment 
of the item on the Company's return. If any Member desires such a request for 
administrative adjustment, and if all Members consent to the requested 
adjustment (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld), then the 
Management Committee shall file the request for administrative adjustment on 
behalf of the Company.

     10.6 Tax Matters Partner. (a) CUSA shall be the 'Tax Matters Partner' for 
purposes of Code (S)(S)6621 and 6231 and the regulations promulgated thereunder.
Copies of all notices received by the Tax Matters Partner shall promptly be sent
to the other Member. All returns, filings and other correspondence to be 
submitted to any taxing authority shall be furnished to the Management Committee
for review and approval at least fifteen (15) days prior to the date on which 
such matters are required to be filed or otherwise submitted, unless a shorter 
period of review is necessitated by circumstances.

     (b) The Tax Matters Partner is authorized and required to represent the 
Company in connection with all examinations of the Company's tax returns by tax 
authorities, including resulting administrative and judicial proceedings to 
contest any proposed adjustments. The Tax Matters Partner shall keep the Members
informed on a timely basis of all material developments with respect to the 
examination of the Company's returns, any proposed adjustments to such returns 
(either by tax authorities

or by the Company), and any administrative or judicial proceedings with respect 
to such adjustments. The Tax Matters Partner's duty to keep the Members informed
of material developments under this Section 10.6 shall include, but not be 
limited to, the duty to provide the Members with copies of all correspondence 
and other information and documents filed with or received from tax authorities,
and to inform the Members of the matters described in Regulation Section 
1.6223(g)-1T. Where such correspondence or documents are voluminous, they may be
made available to the Members for inspection and copying at a reasonable time
and place. The Tax Matters Partner shall consult in good faith with any Member
at such Member's request regarding the handling of any tax examinations and
subsequent appeals. Each Member of the Company shall have the right to
participate in all administrative and judicial proceedings involving the tax
matters of the Company.

     (c) The Tax Matters Partner shall not enter into any agreement extending 
the period of limitations on assessments as provided under Code Section 6229 or 
similar provisions of other applicable laws without first obtaining the prior 
written consent of all Members, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld.

     (d) The Tax Matters Partner shall not enter into any settlement agreement 
with respect to the tax treatment of items without the prior written consent of 
the other Member, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.

     (e) The provisions of this Section 10.6 shall survive the dissolution or 
termination of the Company and the termination of any Member's interest in the 
Company and shall remain binding for a period of time necessary to resolve all 
tax matters with applicable taxing authorities.
