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?*At this date, the committee is comprised of 14 members, there is a vacancy in one of the categories, so there are five in each of two categories and four in on of the 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 once per year as needed to perform its duties. There was no need to meet in FY17, FY18 or FY19 as the committee had made all the necessary recommendations for the remaining SRS funds in FY16.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*This Resource Advisory Committee is mandated by the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act as reauthorized in Public Law 110-343 and Public Law 112-141.
Why close or partially close meetings?All meetings were open to the public.
Recommendation RemarksThere was no meeting activity in FY2018 or FY2019 due to lack of quorum, late SRS reauthorization and pending charter renewal.
