Hi all, we are going to be running a few minutes late- we'll be starting shortly after 2!
We will have time for questions at the end of the presentation. In the meantime, feel free to type questions here as they arise.
Any guesses on when the public comment period will be open in more detail?
I.e. any idea when this year before december?
These new management payments will be especially valuable to those installing forest buffers.
Can we expect any details in rule-making concerning Technical Asst and the coordination with State Forestry agencies?
Do we know if FSA investments in forestry technical assistance for the Chesapeake RFB Initiative will continue?
can they reiterate how state agreements need to be revised in light of the new provisions in the FB, or not....if no revisions are made, what would the state policy be? The FB? or the State Agreement?
Please clarify the types of issues that must be addressed through RULE-MAKING vs. what can be accomplished at State Technical Committee meetings.
And define who is a "CREP Partner?"
Is Mike saying that the State Technical Committee has the FINAL decision on those items like rental rates and management payments? I so, that is incorrect. They can make recommendations, but the final decision lies with FSA alone.
I meant "If so..."
Mike isn’t saying that the STC has the final say on Soil Rental Rates
