Subject: [CPEO-MEF] HASC Readiness Subcommittee to Hold Encroachment Hearings
On March 14th the Military Readiness Subcommittee will hold hearings on encroachment. While the hearings last year focused on the general issues it appears that this hearing will be much more specific. Some of the specific issues include:

How compliance with environmental laws such as Endangered Species Act (ESA), Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA), Migratory Bird Treaty Act(MBTA), Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act, Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA), Resource and Recovery Act (RCRA), CERCLA, Noise Control Act and federal wilderness acts impacts military readiness and national security.

Changes the services have implemented to comply with environmental laws
