Legislation to Terminate Required 
Legislation Status 
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The New Mexico Resource Advisory Council(RAC) was changed from a 15-member Statewide RAC into four Districtwide RACs to encourage broader based participation at the District level. New Mexico will have four RACs within its border: Albuquerque District, Farmington District, Las Cruces District, and Pecos District. Each RAC will be comprised of 10 members representing a balance of public land resources and users.
How is membership balanced?*The 15-member Council has 3 groups of interests: Group 1 (5 members) represents holders of Federal grazing permits and representatives of energy and mineral development, timber industry, transportation or rights-of-way, off-highway vehicle use, and commercial recreation. Group 2 (5 members) includes representatives of nationally or regionally recognized environmental organizations, archaeological and historic interests, dispersed recreation and wild horse and burro groups. Group 3 (5 members) represents holders of State, county, or local elected office; employees of a State agency responsible for management of natural resources; members of an Indian Tribe; academicians involved in natural sciences; and the public at large.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*No meetings were held in Fiscal Year 2010. Generally meetings are held 3-4 times a fiscal year.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*No other forum exists in the State of New Mexico where citizens of such diverse backgrounds and interests can gather to provide advice and recommendations to managers, the State Director, and the Secretary of the Interior. It is important to have input from citizens who are directly impacted by Federal decisions, to inform them and to enable them to have an impact on those decisions. FLPMA--43 CFR Ch. 11, Subpart 1784: ...requires establishment of advisory councils representative of major citizen interests concerned with resource management of public lands. Under 1784.0-6 Policy: it is the policy of the Secretary to establish and employ committees representative of major citizen's interest...to advise the Secretary and Director regarding policy formulation, program planning, decision making, attainment of program objectives and achievement of improved program coordination and economies in the management of public lands and resources...
Why close or partially close meetings?Meetings are not closed. They are open to the public and advertised in the Federal Register.
