Legislation Status 
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The occasional value of the open advisory committee meetings to the public, the distribution of meeting minutes throughout the community, the State, and other interested parties, and the continued media coverage of the advisory committee analysis of planning documents has been critical to the consensus-building process in the community for the completion of the General Management Plan/EnvironmentalImpact Statement.
How is membership balanced?*The eleven members on the committee represent a broad cross-section of the public interested in the long-term management of the Niobrara National Scenic River Members represented property owners in the Niobrara Valley, canoe outfitters, the State of Nebraska, county and/or natural resource districts, and the conservation community.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The Commission met once prior to expiration. Since the group represents the community, their discussion of issues provided critical input to the decision-making process.

Why close or partially close meetings?All meetings were open.
