Subject: SLS: Bio-Treaty update: Clinton Adviser Runs into Criticism

>Clinton Adviser Runs Into Criticism
>By NICHOLAS K. GERANIOS, Associated Press Writer
>SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- President Clinton's top environmental adviser ran 
>into criticism and occasional laughter Saturday as she met with 
>conservative Westerners opposed to federal controls of their lands.
>Kathleen McGinty, chair of the Council on Environmental Quality, spoke 
>to the Western States Coalition Summit, a twice-a-year gathering of 
>local and state politicians, natural resource industry executives and 
>others concerned about federal control of Western lands.
>Even her introduction drew criticism with a reading of a list of 
>administration accomplishments. They included the administration's plan 
>to manage forests in the Pacific Northwest, where endangered-species 
>protections run up against timber industry jobs, and creation of the 1.7 
>million-acre Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in Utah, which 
>blocked development of a huge coal mine.
>``What she sees as successes we see as failures,'' said Laura Cleland of 
>the Oregon Lands Coalition in Salem, Ore. ``The president's forest plan 
>closed hundreds of mills in the Northwest.''
>Discussions during the three-day meeting that ended Saturday included 
>topics such as a perceived pro-environmentalist bias in school 
>textbooks, combating fear of farm chemicals and opposition to the theory 
>of global warming.
>McGinty said disputes such as the Grand Staircase designation and 
>government protection of animals under the Endangered Species Act have 
>polarized environmental debate into an endless series of court battles.
>``We must achieve stewardship of the land and economic opportunities 
>together,'' McGinty said.
>She said a centerpiece of that objective could be the American Heritage 
>Rivers Initiative, which the president proposed in his State of the 
>Union address this year.
>She described it as an entirely voluntary effort designed to help 
>riverside communities find existing federal programs to improve their 
>waterfronts for environmental, economic and recreational benefits. It 
>does not contain new money, propose new laws or exert more federal 
>Some people worried that the program would throw out existing water 
>rights, a sensitive issue throughout the West, and would eventually 
>become mandatory.
>``We don't believe you yet,'' an audience member told McGinty.
