How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The purpose of a Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act resource advisory committee is to improve collaborative relations and to provide advice and recommendations to the Forest Service consistent with Division C, Title VI of Public Law 110-343. The Act describes the duties of the committees as follows: to review projects proposed by counties and other interested parties; to recommend projects and funding; to provide early and continuous coordination with Forest Service officials; to provide frequent opportunities for citizens, organizations, tribes, land management agencies and other interested parties to participate openly and meaningfully, beginning in the early stages of project development; to monitor projects approved under the Act; to advise the designated federal official on the progress of monitoring; and to make recommendations for any appropriate changes or adjustments to projects being monitored.
How is membership balanced?*The committee is comprised of 15 members, five in each of three categories prescribed in the Act. Within each category, the Act identifies specific interests members are to represent. Committees are formed in geographic areas to ensure each national forest located within a participating county or counties has access to a resource advisory committee. The Act requires members to be residents of the state or states within which the committee has jurisdiction.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The committee generally will meet as needed to perform its duties.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The Resource Advisory Committee (RAC) is mandated by the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act, previously established under Public Law 106-393 and entered in the FACA database as Rogue and Umpqua RAC, a subcommittee of 11980. The RAC was reauthorized under Public Law 110-28, Public Law 110-343 and Public Law 112-141.
Why close or partially close meetings?Meetings are not closed. The authorizing legislation directs that meetings be open to the public.
Recommendation RemarksThere were no RAC meetings in FY22 due to lack of quorum of members.
