The White House
Dear President Clinton:
In these final days of the 104th Congress, there is one more
opportunity to end the damage that is being done to our nation's
environment by the Rescissions Act Logging Rider and the Mt. Graham
We are thankful that you have asked the Congress to repeal both of
these odious Riders. We believe you have the power, in negotiations
with Congressional leaders, to insist that this be done.
Jessica Mathews recently observed that citizens should know "whether
elected officials' professed concern for the environment is matched by
action when it counts."
This is a case where it counts. Ancient Forests, pristine waters,
endangered fish and wildlife, Native American sacred sites, and the
rights of citizens in our nation to hold their own government
accountable are all at stake.
You have the means to insure that no legislation funding the Forest
Service after October 1 is signed that does not repeal these two
Riders, and restore the laws that are designed to achieve balance in
our environmental policies and fulfill our obligation to be good
stewards of this Earth.
We are counting on you.
