A bold, new way of doing business managing Americaís natural resources
For far too long, the Pacific Northwest and northern California were deadlocked in an emotional, polarizing debate over how to manage the regionís federal forest lands. It was a dilemma that previous administrations failed to address, a problem that President Clinton inherited, and one that he made a priority to solve.
The President pledged to correct the mistakes of the past, put an end to the gridlock,
and move the region forward. The President and his administration succeeded by
creating a science-based, legal, and balanced forest management plan that provides for
both economic opportunity and protection of the environment.
