SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

We are inviting the public to comment on Interior's “Draft Ten-Year Report” and “10 Years of Progress” reports. Since enactment of the statute, Interior has submitted detailed reports to the Senate and the House of Representatives describing all significant actions taken and progress toward achievement of the intent, purposes, and provisions of the CVPIA.

Since the passage of CVPIA, Interior, with the assistance of the State of California and the cooperation of many partners, has completed many of the necessary administrative requirements, conducted numerous studies and investigations, implemented hundreds of measures, and has generally made significant progress towards achieving the goals and objectives established by CVPIA. The “CVPIA Ten-Year Report,” and the “10 Years of Progress” reports summarize the actions taken by Interior in the ten fiscal years, 1993-2002, to implement the Act.

Interior seeks public comment on whether the “CVPIA 10-Year Report,” and the “10 Years of Progress” reports are adequate, as identified by section 3408(f) of the Act, with a focus on reporting methodologies and quantification of accomplishments. Additionally, comments are sought regarding future CVPIA implementation actions and a process to better identify when all or portions of the Act are complete.

Our practice is to make comments, including names and home addresses of respondents, available for public review. Individual respondents may request that we withhold their home address from public disclosure, and we will honor such requests to the extent allowed by law. There also may be circumstances in which we would withhold a respondent's identity from public disclosure, as allowed by law. If you wish Interior to withhold your name and/or address, you must state this prominently at the beginning of your comments. We will make all submissions from organizations or businesses, and from individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials of organizations or businesses, available for public disclosure in their entirety.
