Purpose of Meeting: To review preparation of the report the National Assessment Synthesis Team is preparing for the interagency Subcommittee on Global Change Research to report on the findings of the National Assessment of the potential consequences of climate variability and climate change for the United States.


Day 1 (May 31): Members will review technical comments received and will discuss revisions to report; an opportunity for public comment will be provided in late afternoon.

Day 2 (June 1): Discussion of technical comments and revisions will continue.

Reason for Late Notice: This same notice appeared in the Federal Register on May 18, 2000. The Committee was unaware at the time the notice was submitted that it would ultimately be published two days later than anticipated. Because this upcoming Committee meeting will result in a draft report which needs to be made available for a 60-day public comment period, as directed by Congress, it is necessary to continue the Committee's expeditious progress toward completion of its report.
