     I commend the United States Senate and House of Representatives for
passing landmark and bipartisan legislation to restore America's
Everglades.  Today we can begin to make the dream of a renewed Everglades a
reality and replenish one of our Nation's most endangered ecosystems.   The
Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan represents one of the largest
environmental restoration projects ever attempted.  The measure is the
product of a bipartisan effort and it enjoys the support of the entire
range of affected interests, from developers and farmers to
environmentalists, from federal and state agencies to local government.
