Republican nominee for Vice President Dick Cheney can’t understand the President’s support for a “spring rise” on the Missouri River. He says a bi-partisan group of Missouri lawmakers have their opposition clear. Cheney says federal agencies have generally done a good job managing natural resources, but he says the Clinton administration in particular tends to steamroll local wishes. Upper Missouri lawmakers have convinced the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to raise the Missouri in the spring and lower it in the summer; Senator Kit Bond has lead the opposition. Cheney says state voters should demand to know whether Al Gore joins Clinton in his support for the plan.
