American Heritage Rivers Initiative


"The last thing this program is, is another regulatory program," assured Katie McGinty, VP Al Gore’s Czar on Clinton’s Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ).

In his State of the Union Address, Clinton announced the American Heritage Rivers Initiative to "support communities in their efforts to restore and protect America’s Rivers." Under this program, he wants to designate 10 rivers as Heritage Rivers in 1997. These rivers will receive special recognition and focused federal support.

After originally allowing only two weeks for public comment, the CEQ (after many complaints) extended the comment period to August 20th.

Comments must be received by 5:00 PM E.S.T. on 8/20 and should be mailed to:

Council on Environmental Quality
Old Executive Office Building, Room 360
Washington DC 20501
