For Immediate Release
Office of the Press Secretary
May 21, 2003

President Bush Thanks Administrator Whitman for Outstanding Service
Statement by the President

      In Focus: The Environment

Christie Todd Whitman is a trusted friend and advisor who has worked closely with me to achieve real and meaningful results to improve our environment.

Christie Todd has been a dedicated and tireless fighter for new and innovative policies for cleaner air, purer water, and better protected land.

In just over two years, we have acted in a comprehensive way to reduce pollution from diesel fuel sources, and implemented an innovative initiative to better protect our water quality and watersheds. We are cleaning up abandoned industrial sites and turning them into assets for the communities in which they are located. We are also making great progress on the Clear Skies initiative that I outlined to significantly reduce pollution from power plants by 70%.

Christie Todd Whitman has served my Administration exceptionally well. I thank her for her outstanding service to our Nation and wish her well as she returns home to New Jersey.
