Proclamation 6733--Crime Prevention Month, 1994

October 5, 1994

By the President of the United States

of America

A Proclamation

    Finding solutions to the problems of crime and violence must be a 
top priority for our Nation. Parents should not be afraid to let their 
children walk to school alone. Children should never hesitate to play in 
neighborhood playgrounds. No longer should innocent Americans of all 
ages find their lives forever changed by crime. Americans have endured 
    Our Nation made a major leap forward in the effort to find lasting 
solutions when I signed into law the long-awaited crime bill--the 
toughest, smartest Federal attack on crime in our history. The Violent 
Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act is the first major Federal anti-
crime legislation enacted in 6 years. It authorizes more than $5 billion 
in Federal assistance over the next 6 years to help States and 
communities implement a broad range of new crime and drug abuse 
prevention programs.
    Prevention is the first, critical step in my Administration's three-
pronged strategy for crime control. Accompanied by stringent law 
enforcement and by certain, appropriate punishment, prevention is one of 
our Nation's most effective weapons against crime, violence, and the 
spread of illicit drugs. Across the country, people are already working 
to bring about positive change in their communities. They are 
establishing neighborhood watches and citizen patrols. They are working 
with law enforcement officers to close down drug houses. They are 
cleaning up playgrounds and parks and creating drug-free school zones. 
They are taking back their streets from all those who would seek to 
cause harm.
    The National Citizens' Crime Prevention Campaign--sponsored by the 
U.S. Department of Justice, the Advertising Council, the Crime 
Prevention Coalition, and the National Crime Prevention Council--is also 
working to help implement crime prevention efforts in American urban, 
suburban, and rural areas and on U.S. military bases worldwide. The 
Crime Prevention Coalition sponsors Crime Prevention Month each October 
to emphasize the importance of personal involvement and to promote 
community-police partnerships for crime control. Crime Prevention Month 
challenges every American to take individual and collective action to 
prevent crime. It teaches us that working together, we can make a 
    The Congress, by House Joint Resolution 363, has designated October 
1994 as ``Crime Prevention Month'' and has authorized and requested the 
President to issue a proclamation in observance of this month.
    Now, Therefore, I, William J. Clinton, President of the United 
States of America, do hereby proclaim October 1994 as Crime Prevention 
Month. I encourage residents in communities throughout the Nation to 
observe this month with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and 
    In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this fifth day of 
October, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and ninety-four, and 
of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and 
                                            William J. Clinton

Note: This proclamation was published in the Federal Register on October 
12. This item was not received in time for publication in the

Message to the Congress on Implementation of the North American Free 
Trade Agreement

October 6, 1994

To the Congress of the United States:

    In November 1993, in preparation for the implementation of the North 
American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) on January 1, 1994, I informed the 
Congress of my intent to modify the moratorium on the issuance of 
certificates of operating authority to Mexican-owned or -controlled 
motor carriers that was imposed by the Bus Regulatory Reform Act of 1982 
(49 U.S.C. 10922(l)(2)(A)). The modification applied to Mexican charter 
and tour bus operations. At that time, I also informed the Congress that 
I would be notifying it of additional modifications to the moratorium 
with respect to Mexican operations as we continued to implement NAFTA's 
transportation provisions. In this regard, it is now my intention to 
further modify the moratorium to allow Mexican small package delivery 
services to operate in the United States provided that Mexico implements 
its NAFTA obligation to provide national treatment to U.S. small package 
delivery companies.
    Prior to its implementation of the NAFTA, Mexico limited foreign-
owned small package delivery services, such as that offered by United 
Parcel Service and Federal Express, to trucks approximately the size of 
a minivan. This made intercity service impractical and effectively 
limited small-package delivery companies to intracity service only. 
Mexico has no similar restriction on the size of trucks used by Mexican 
small package delivery services. Because Mexico did not take a 
reservation in this area, the NAFTA obligates Mexico to extend national 
treatment to U.S. small package and messenger service companies. Mexico 
must allow U.S. small package delivery services to use the same size 
trucks that Mexican small package delivery companies are permitted to 
    Mexico, earlier this year, enacted legislation that addresses the 
small package delivery issue. Amendments to the Law on Roads, Bridges, 
and Federal Motor Carriers authorize parcel delivery and messenger 
services to operate without restriction so long as they obtain a permit 
from the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation and direct 
that such permits be granted in a timely fashion. The law includes no 
restrictions on the size and weight of parcels nor on the dimensions of 
the vehicles that small package delivery services will be permitted to 
    At the North American Transportation Summit hosted by the United 
States on April 29, 1994, Mexico's Secretary of Communications and
