The Final Initiatives
NPR's Pam Fessler reports on the large number of federal regulations that the Clinton administration is issuing during its last days in office. Among the most controversial are: banning road building and logging in millions of acres of federally owned forests; restricting the sulfur content of diesel fuel; protecting the privacy of medical records; setting federal standards for organic foods; and holding employers liable for ergonomic injuries. President Clinton says the new regulations have been in the works for a long time, and they aren't last minute initiatives.
