How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The BLM's Northeastern Great Basin Resource Advisory Council reviews projects and programs and advises the designated Federal officer regarding the management of public land resources within the RAC's jurisdiction.

Category I includes those holding Federal grazing permits or leases, interests associated with transportation or rights-of-way, developed outdoor recreation, OHV users, or commercial recreation activities, commercial timber industry, or energy and mineral development. Category II includes nationally or regionally recognized environmental organizations, dispersed recreation activities, archaeological and historical interests, or nationally or regionally recognized wild horse and burro interest groups.
