WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama will meet key Republican and Democratic senators on June 23 to discuss a way forward for energy legislation currently stalled in the Senate, a White House aide said on Wednesday.

The meeting, which will include Republican Lindsey Graham, one of three original authors of the bill in the Senate who later dropped support for it, takes place as the president pushes for energy reform in the aftermath of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

"Next week he will be reaching out to senators on both sides of the aisle to chart a path forward," the official said.
