TEXT OF A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
TO THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
AND THE PRESIDENT OF THE SENATE
January 17, 2001
Dear Mr. Speaker: (Dear Mr. President:)
In accordance with the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management
Act (16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), I transmit here-with an Agreement between the
United States of America and the Government of the Republic of Estonia
extending the Agreement of June 1, 1992, Concerning Fisheries Off the
Coasts of the United States, with annex, as extended (the 1992 Agreement).
The present Agreement, which was effected by an exchange of notes at
Tallinn on September 7 and September 12, 2000, extends the 1992 Agreement
to June 30, 2003.
In light of the importance of our fisheries relationship with the Republic
of Estonia, I urge that the Congress give favorable consideration to this
Agreement at an early date.
WILLIAM J. CLINTON
