Notice Of Meeting.

Summary

Under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, 92, EPA gives notice of a meeting of the Good Neighbor Environmental Board (Board). The Board usually meets three times each calendar year, twice at different locations along the U.S. border with Mexico, and once in Washington, DC. It was created in 1992 by the Enterprise for the Americas Initiative Act, 102, 7 U.S.C. Section 5404. Implementing authority was delegated to the Administrator of EPA under Executive Order 12916. The Board is responsible for providing advice to the President and the Congress on environmental and infrastructure issues and needs within the States contiguous to Mexico in order to improve the quality of life of persons residing on the United States side of the border. The statute calls for the Board to have representatives from U.S. Government agencies; the States of Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas; and Tribal and private organizations to provide advice on environmental and infrastructure issues along the U.S./Mexico Border.

The purpose of the meeting is to continue discussion and finalize the Board's 13th report. Presentations will also be heard on the environmental impacts of the border fence. The meeting will include a planning session, a business meeting and a public comment session. A copy of the meeting agenda will be posted at http://www.epa.gov/ocem/gneb.
