[On June 8, 1989, BUSH - says "no net loss."] Developers noted seeking loophole around "no net loss" policy so they can keep drilling for oil in Alaska. [Natural Resources Defense Council Richard AYRES - says Bush makes speeches about environment, but his policy is made to please business.] Bush's administration noted fighting to weaken Senate clean air bill. Environmentalists said blaming White House Chief of Staff John Sununu for watering down proposals of EPA administrator William Reilly.
