Office of the Press Secretary
REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT IN RADIO ACTUALITY
THE PRESIDENT: Today I announced the expansion of a wildlife refuge to protect the prime salmon habitat along the Columbia River. This supports our treaty with Canada to protect Pacific Coast salmon.
My budget proposes increases for salmon restoration, but Congress has provided only a fraction of the resources necessary to do the job. So, again, I call on Congress to provide the necessary resources to support this treaty, and to work with me on a budget process that observes our obligations and protects and preserves our environment.
