                        REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT
                           IN RADIO ACTUALITY

THE PRESIDENT: Across America, communities are struggling to protect precious lands so their children will have places to play, hike and enjoy the great outdoors. Today I'm announcing nearly $60 million in new grants to help communities in all 50 states create parks, preserve forests, and save open space.

And the Lands Legacy Initiative in my new budget will provide permanent funding, so that communities can conserve additional lands year after year.
