Legislation StatusNot Applicable
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Missouri Basin Resource Advisory Council (RAC) will provide advice and recommendations to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) on land use planning and management of public lands located within the BLM’s North Central Montana and Eastern Montana/Dakotas districts. The RAC will also make recommendations on recreation fee proposals for the BLM and U.S. Forest Service.
How is membership balanced?*The Missouri Basin RAC is composed of 15 members distributed in a balanced fashion among the following groups and within those groups. Specific interests include: Category I includes those holding Federal grazing permits or leases, interests associated with transportation or rights-of-way, developed outdoor recreation, OHV users, or commercial recreation activities, commercial timber industry, or energy and mineral development. Category II includes nationally or regionally recognized environmental organizations, dispersed recreation activities, archaeological and historical interests, or nationally or regionally recognized wild horse and burro interest groups. Category III includes state, county, or locally elected office-holders, employee of a State agency responsible for the management of natural resources, Indian Tribes within or adjacent to the area for which the RAC is organized, are employed as academicians in natural resource management or the natural sciences, or represent the public-at-large.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The Council will meet 2-4 times per year depending on emerging resource issues.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The Missouri Basin RAC will play a role in developing consensus and partnership as its members make formal recommendations and communicate with the stakeholder groups that they represent. These formal and informal communications have enabled the RAC to identify and address issues early on, developing more defensible actions with greater local support and buy-in. The BLM would not be able to approve changes to recreation fees or approve any new recreation fee sites without RAC input.
Why close or partially close meetings?All meetings will be open to the public.
Recommendation RemarksThe North Central Montana (2059), Eastern Montana (2060), and Dakotas (2061) Resource Advisory Councils were consolidated into a single Missouri Basin Resource Advisory Council (84608) effective March 5, 2020.
