The 15-member Alaska RAC serves in an advisory capacity concerning issues relating to land use planning or the management of the public land resources located within the State of Alaska. The 8-member Subcommittee on Public Lands was established to gather information, conduct research, and analyze relevant issues and facts on selected topics for future consideration by the RAC. The Subcommittee's primary goal is to provide information to the RAC that will allow it to better respond to time-sensitive issues, such as resource management plans, arctic activity, conveyances, minerals, subsistence management, and recreation. No decisions are made at the subcommittee level. All meetings are open to the public in their entirety. The Designated Federal Officer will attend the call, take minutes, and publish these detailed meeting minutes on the RAC web page.
