How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*Although no meetings were held in FY 04.

How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*Meetings occur based on need. No meetings were held in FY 03 because of need for governors to make recommendations of new members. Meetings will be scheduled and held during the first half of Fiscal Year 2004.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The existence and composition of the Committee are mandated by Public Law 102-212. The Connecticut River watershed encompasses over 7.2 million acres in four states, and is home to over 2.3 million people living in 390 cities and towns. The Committee members represent the Service, states of Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont and New Hampshire, the cities and towns, and interest groups which depend on outreach and education. The Committee members were selected to provide important input and best represent the concerns of theirconstituences to the Conte Refuge Staff.
Why close or partially close meetings?All meetings are open to the public.
Recommendation RemarksMemberships on this committee have all expired. Since the Act requires that members be appointed based on recommendations by the governors of each of the four watershed states, the Service wrote to them in August 2000 requesting new appointments. Nominations have been received from the New Hampshire and Vermont governors. Connecticut and Massachusetts governors have not provided recommendations despite reminders from Service staff.
