Message to the Senate Transmitting the South Korea-United States Legal 
Assistance Treaty

January 12, 1995

To the Senate of the United States:

    With a view to receiving the advice and consent of the Senate to 
ratification, I transmit herewith the Treaty Between the Government of 
the United States of America and the Government of the Republic of Korea 
on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters, signed at Washington on 
November 23, 1993, with a related exchange of notes signed the same 
date. Also transmitted for the information of the Senate is the report 
of the Department of State with respect to this Treaty.
    The Treaty is one of a series of modern mutual legal assistance 
treaties that the United States is negotiating in order to counter 
criminal activities more effectively. The Treaty should be an effective 
tool to assist in the prosecution of a wide variety of modern criminals, 
including members of drug cartels, ``white-collar'' criminals, and 
terrorists. The Treaty is self-executing.
    The Treaty provides for a broad range of cooperation in criminal 
matters. Mutual assistance available under the treaty includes: (1) 
taking testimony or statements of persons; (2) providing documents, 
records, and articles of evidence; (3) serving documents; (4) locating 
or identifying persons or items; (5) transferring persons in custody for 
testimony or other purposes; (6) executing requests for searches and 
seizures; (7) assisting in forfeiture proceedings; and (8) rendering any 
other form of assistance not prohibited by the laws of the Requested 
    I recommend that the Senate give early and favorable consideration 
to the Treaty and give its advice and consent to ratification.
                                            William J. Clinton
The White House,

Statement on Disaster Assistance for California

January 13, 1995

    Today, I am sending to the State of California $10 million from the 
disaster relief fund. These funds will be used by the State and local 
governments in the flooded areas to remove debris and to take protective 
measures to ensure the health and safety of their residents.
    At this time, I have approved Federal assistance for 34 California 
counties stricken by the disastrous floods. Our hearts go out to the 
people who have suffered losses in these disastrous floods. I have asked 
James L. Witt, the Director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, 
to make certain that all appropriate resources of the Federal Government 
are applied to assist the State of California in helping their citizens 
to begin to recover from this disaster. The action I have taken today 
will be a start for California residents down the difficult road to

Statement on the Dispute Between Bridgestone-Firestone and the United 
Rubber Workers

January 13, 1995

    I have long supported legislation to prevent companies from 
permanently replacing their striking workers. Unfortunately, last year a 
minority of Senators prevented the full Senate from voting on the bill.
    Now Bridgestone-Firestone's use of permanent replacements shows 
exactly why this protection is necessary. By bringing in permanent 
replacements for their workers who are on strike, while refusing to come 
to the

[[Page 62]]

bargaining table, the management of Bridgestone-Firestone is flagrantly 
turning its back on our tradition of peaceful collective bargaining to 
solve labor disputes. When companies replace their workers under these 
circumstances, they sow seeds of distrust and resentment which can 
extend far beyond their company, undermining labor-management relations 
across the land. Bridgestone-Firestone should get back to the bargaining 
table with the United Rubber Workers to reach a fair settlement. 
Secretary Reich and the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service stand 
ready to help. Let's get on with it.

The President's Radio Address

January 14, 1995

    Good morning. Let me begin by saying that Hillary and I send our 
prayers and our good wishes to all the families who are suffering in the 
terrible California floods. Our administration is doing everything in 
our power to make sure you get the relief you need. And I pledge to you 
that the American people will stand by you in this time of crisis as 
they have in the past.
    On Monday, we'll all celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King on 
what would have been his 66th birthday. Dr. King was one of the great 
moral prophets of our time. He never held public office, but no one ever 
did more to redeem the promise of American life or stir the soul of our 
    One of Martin Luther King's greatest lessons was that every American 
deserves a piece of the American dream, the chance to pull ourselves up 
and work our way into the middle class. He taught us that we have more 
uniting us than dividing us, that no matter our race, our religion, our 
income, we all share the same hope of building better lives for 
ourselves and our children.
    The most important civil right is the right to dream the American 
dream and to have the opportunity to live it. I ran for President 
because I feared we were in danger of losing that right. At a moment of 
great change in our history, as we move from the industrial age into the 
information age, as we end the cold war and move into the global economy 
of the 21st century, I believe our purpose has to be to keep the 
American dream alive for all Americans.
    To do that, I have fought for three things: first, a new economic 
strategy to help our people compete and win in the new global economy; 
second, a new covenant with the American people that offers more 
opportunity to everyone willing to assume personal responsibility for 
their own lives; and third, a new kind of Government, a leaner, but not 
a meaner Government that cuts yesterday's programs and bureaucracy to 
make room for tomorrow's solutions, rooted in responsibility, 
empowerment of our citizens, the strength of our communities.
    In 2 years we're made a good start. We have a strong economy with 
5.6 million new jobs. We've made historic cuts in the deficit, enough to 
take $11,000 in debt off of every family's future. We've cut the size of 
Government. There are 100,000 fewer people working for the Federal 
Government than there were on the day I became President. And we've made 
lots of programs more efficient and more effective. And we've offered 
the American people new opportunities that demand more responsibility, 
from more affordable college loans, to the family leave program, to 
giving our local communities the resources they need to lower the crime
