The National Advisory Committee for Implementation of the National Forest System Land Management Planning Rule will be renewed. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is announcing on Monday, Feb. 3 that it plans to continue the committee, which advises the department and U.S. Forest Service on implementing the National Forest System Land Management Planning Rule.

Read the announcement at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2014-02-03/html/2014-02113.htm.

The committee is currently working on directives. It recommended changes to the directives last November.

Twenty-one members serve on the committee, representing state and local governments, Indian tribes, environmental and archeological groups, youth, timber and energy professions, hunters and recreational interests.

You can read about the committee's work at http://www.fs.usda.gov/main/planningrule/committee.

It is working on suggestions on how to interpret ambiguous language and work with other agencies, for instance.

Last fall, it recommended, for example, getting young people and people from different backgrounds more involved in the planning process. It said the department needs to be careful to comply with the National Environmental Policy Act.
