SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The purpose of the electronic public discussion forum is to provide an alternative capacity for gathering comments on the Department's proposed drug and alcohol procedures. Another capability of the bulletin board-type system is to allow interchange between the public and the Office of Drug and Alcohol Policy and Compliance to attempt to clarify issues, or answer last-minute questions, for the public through a question and answer format. Topics can be generated, questions may be posed, and clarification will be provided (by ODAPC). All of the interchange (e.g., question, answers, comments) generated in this context will be viewable by all users of the system. Specific instructions for use of the electronic public discussion forum will be provided at the Internet site.
