SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Summary: Pursuant to the Federal Advisory Committee Act, Pub. L. 92-463, notice is hereby given that the Council will hold a public meeting to provide advice to the EPA on the Agency's plan to develop the third in a series of statutorily mandated comprehensive analyses of the total costs and total benefits of programs implemented pursuant to the Clean Air Act, and that the Council and its two subcommittees will also hold public teleconferences to plan for the public meeting. The dates and times for both the meeting and teleconference are provided above.

Background: Background on the Council, its subcommittees, and on the advisory project that will be the focus of the meeting and teleconferences described in this notice was provided in a Federal Register notice published on February 14, 2003 (68 FR 7531-7534).

In forming the Health and Ecological Effects Subcommittee discussed in that Federal Register notice, the Science Advisory Board Staff Office received nominations for health effects experts. It has therefore decided to rename the Subcommittee as the “Health Effects Subcommittee” of the Council and to work with the Council to form a new subcommittee to focus on ecological effects or to develop another appropriate mechanism to consider and give due attention to ecological effects, including coordination with a new SAB Start Printed Page 25883Committee on “Valuing the Protection of Ecological Systems and Services.”

Meeting Accommodations: Individuals requiring special accommodation to access the public meetings listed above, should contact the DFO at least five business days prior to the meeting so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
