Pricing wetlands recovery

The editorial "A Plan for Wetlands Recovery," Jan. 6, is well written, but it is incomplete because it does not discuss the cost of achieving specific goals. One sentence mentions a proposal for a fund to pay for wetlands restoration, so obviously the writer is aware that such an ambitious program would not be free.

However, in order to make a more helpful contribution to the public-policy debate, dollars and cents must be discussed, too.

We are all for wetlands restoration in the abstract, but in concrete terms of "At what price?" the choice becomes more difficult. Mark Hendrickson, New Wilmington, Pa.
