Office of the Press Secretary

For Immediate Release July 27, 2000
                        REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT
                           IN RADIO ACTUALITY

     Today, my Administration is proposing a comprehensive strategy to

bring back the wild salmon of the Pacific Northwest. We'll pursue a practical course that will help both the economy and the environment. Congress must also do its part by fully funding my salmon restoration budget. And the people of the Pacific Northwest must be prepared to take the necessary steps. Only in partnership with state and tribal governments and other stakeholders can we restore the salmon without resorting to costlier measures. I welcome the recommendations of the region's governors, and look forward to working together to ensure our success.
