THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Press Secretary
For Immediate Release July 27, 2000
REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT
IN RADIO ACTUALITY
Today, my Administration is proposing a comprehensive strategy to
bring back the wild salmon of the Pacific Northwest. We'll pursue a
practical course that will help both the economy and the environment.
Congress must also do its part by fully funding my salmon restoration
budget. And the people of the Pacific Northwest must be prepared to take
the necessary steps. Only in partnership with state and tribal governments
and other stakeholders can we restore the salmon without resorting to
costlier measures. I welcome the recommendations of the region's
governors, and look forward to working together to ensure our success.

Fisheries Service's Website at http://www.nwr.noaa.gov
