As many Americans head to the beach for the first time this year, President Clinton today announced a plan to reduce pollution along U-S coastlines and in the ocean waters beyond. The president is asking government agencies to identify where activities like oil-and-gas drilling or development might be reduced or prohibited. This is not the first time Mr. Clinton has used his executive authority to achieve environmental goals on which he and the Congress do not see eye to eye. A NPR's White House correspondent Mara Liasson reports, he plans to use that authority more and more as his time in office comes to a close.
