Provincial Advisory Committees Charter Re-Establishment
The Department of Agriculture, in consultation with the Department of the Interior, intends to re-establish the Provincial Advisory Committees (PACs) for the provinces in California, Oregon, and Washington. This re-establishment is in response to the continued need for the PACs to provide advice on coordinating the implementation of the Record of Decision (ROD) of April 13, 1994, for Management of Habitat for Late-Succession and Old-Growth Forest Related Species within the Range of the Northern Spotted Owl. The PACs also provide advice and recommendations to promote integration and coordination of forest management activities between Federal and non-Federal entities.
Policy on Consultation With Indian Tribes
The Department of the Interior seeks comments on a proposed policy on consultation with Indian tribes. This policy would establish standards for improved consultation with Indian Tribes to the extent that a conflict does not exist with laws or regulations. It would apply to any Department action that affects Indian tribes and would require that the Department's government-to-government consultation involve appropriate Tribal and Departmental officials.
