Background: The SAB was established by 42 U.S.C. 4365 to provide independent scientific and technical advice to the Administrator on the technical basis for Agency positions and regulations. The SAB is a Federal Advisory Committee chartered under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), as amended, 5 U.S.C., App. The SAB will comply with the provisions of FACA and all appropriate SAB Staff Office procedural policies. Pursuant to the Federal Advisory Committee Act, Public Law 92-463, notice is hereby given that the SAB Integrated Nitrogen Committee will hold four public teleconferences to plan for its next face-to-face meeting scheduled for April 2008. The SAB Integrated Nitrogen Committee is conducting an evaluative study on the need for integrated research and control management strategies. To begin its work, the Committee held a public meeting on January 30-31, 2007, to develop a work plan for the study. Background information on that meeting was provided in a Federal Register notice (72 FR 1989, January 17, 2007).
