SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This is the first meeting of the RAC since April 2003 and the committee's summer hiatus. This meeting will focus on the review and discussion of proposals received by the RAC for funding under Title II of the Payments of States legislation (Pub. L. 106-393), particularly proposals that were of high interest to the committee, but lacked enough information for the committee to act. New information will be introduced concerning these proposals. No new proposals (initial reading) will be discussed at this meeting. The committee may make recommendations for project funding at this meeting. A field trip to review proposals proximate to the Wrangell, Alaska, area may take place. The meeting is open to the public. Should members of the public wish to participate in the potential field trip, please contact Patty Grantham or Chip Weber at the above noted addresses/emails/telephone numbers. Public input opportunity will be provided and individuals will have the opportunity to address the committee at that time.
