     Today we took a major step toward ensuring the restoration of
America's Everglades with Senate passage of the Water Resources Development
Act of 2000.  The bill authorizes the Administration's Comprehensive
Everglades Restoration Plan.

     The Everglades Plan enjoys support from both parties and a large
number of agricultural, community, business and environmental groups in

     The time to save the Everglades is at hand.  I urge the House to adopt
this bill in an expeditious manner so that we can begin the restoration of
this national treasure.
