For Immediate Release October 8, 1994

Statement by the President

Today's passage of the California Desert Bill is a clear cut victory for the people of California and everyone across America who cares about this nation's great natural heritage. We all owe a debt of gratitude to Senator Dianne Feinstein for her tireless efforts to bring together a bi-partisan coalition in Congress that ensured its passage.

The passage of this important environmental legislation is a testament to Dianne Feinstein's skillful leadership, perseverance and determination to do the right thing for the people of California.
