Clinton's Statement on Groom Lake/Area 51

THE WHITE HOUSE Office of the Press Secretary

TEXT OF A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT TO THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE
OF REPRESENTATIVES AND THE PRESIDENT OF THE SENATE

January 29, 1999

Dear Mr. Speaker: (Dear Mr. President:)

Consistent with section 6001(a) of the Resource Conservation and
Recovery Act (RCRA) (the "Act"), as amended, 42 U.S.C. 6961(a),
notification is hereby given that on September 25, 1998, I
issued Presidential Determination No. 98-36 (copy attached) and
thereby exercised the authority to grant certain exemptions
under section 6001(a) of the Act.

Presidential Determination No. 98-36 exempted the United States
Air Force's operating location near Groom Lake, Nevada, from any
Federal, State, interstate, or local hazardous or solid waste
laws that might require the disclosure of classified information
concerning that operating location to unauthorized persons.
Information concerning activities at the operating location near
Groom Lake has been properly determined to be classified, and
its disclosure would be harmful to national security. Continued
protection of this information is, therefore, in the paramount
interest of the United States.

The determination was not intended to imply that in the absence
of a Presidential exemption, RCRA or any other provision of law
permits or requires the disclosure of classified information to
unauthorized persons. The determination also was not intended to
limit the applicability or enforcement of any requirement of law
applicable to the Air Force's operating location near Groom Lake
except those provisions, if any, that would require the
disclosure of classified information.

Sincerely,


WILLIAM J. CLINTON
