In his weekly radio address from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, President Clinton strongly opposed budget cuts which would have forced the closing of more than 200 national parks and recreational areas proposed earlier in the year by the congressional majority. He said the right way to help our parks is through the kind of sensible reforms his administration proposed: retaining fees paid by private citizens who enter the parks, making it easier for parks to form partnerships with people in the private sector who want to invest money to preserve our national heritage, and updating contract policies which require concession fees to be paid by businesses operating in parks. The president expressed concern about a proposal to build a large gold mine near Yellowstone Park. He stated that the proposal must meet the highest level of standard delineated by an environmental impact statement. He also declared a two year moratorium on any new mining claims in the area. Lastly, President Clinton made clear his intentions to veto the environmental appropriations bill passed by the House of Representatives. The bill cut funding for environmental enforcement power by fifty percent. close
