How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The scope and objectives are to improve collaborative relationships and to provide advice and recommendations to the Forest Service consistent with the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act of 2000. The duties and responsibilities are to review projects proposed under TItle II of the Act by participating counties and other persons, propose projects and funding to the Secretary of Agriculture under section 203 of the Act, provide frequent opportunities for citizens, organizations, tribes, land management agencies, and other interested parties to participate openly and meaningfully, at the beginning of the early stages of the project development process.
How is membership balanced?*Membership shall be balanced and have broad representation from within each of the three membership groups. These groups include persons who represent organized labor; developed outdoor recreation, off-highway vehicle users, or commercial recreation activities; energy and mineral development interests; commercial timber industry; hold Federal grazing permits or other land use permits; nationally and regionally or locally recognized environmental organizations, dispersed recreational activities; archaeological and historical interest; nationally or regionally recognized wild horse and burro interests groups; hold state elected office or their designee; hold county or local elected office; represent American Indian tribes; school officials or teachers; and represent the affected public-at-large.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*Estimated Number of Meetings per Year - 12 Estimated Total Meetings - 24 Members reviewed and recommended proposed Title II projects for the Secretary's approval.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*This committee is essential because the resource advisory committees provide for early and continuous coordination with agency officials on forest projects and for frequent opportunities for citizens, organizations, tribes, land management agencies and others to participate openly and meaningfully beginning at the early stages of the project development process. Advice of the committee is not available from other sources because the Act requires that resource advisory committees be formed to review forest projects and recommend the proposed projects they deem have merit to the Secretary of Agriculture for approval.
Why close or partially close meetings?No meetings were closed.
Recommendation RemarksTermination advised by Secretariat due to lapsed legislation. Agency may bring this committee back on its own authority if legislation is not forthcoming.

The Committee was established for two purposes: (1) to improve collaborative relationships among the people who use and care for the National Forests and the Forest Service, which mangaes the lands; and (2) to provide advice and recommendations to the Forest Service in identifying and implementing broadly supported land management projects that maintain the existing infrastructure, enhance forest ecosystems, and improve land health and water quality. The RAC directly supports the agency's mission goal for ecosystem health: to Promote ecosystem health and conservation using a collaborative approach to sustain the Nation's forests, grasslands, and watersheds.
