Subject: RE: [CPEO-MEF] RAB Rule proposed
I love it.  They have just formalized the decision not to give the RABs
any teeth or power in the process.  Well, at least they have now
acknowledged in writing what we have been told for so long. "All we have
to do is listen to you.  We may or may not choose to act upon what you
say."  Appearance of participation in the process is all.

Subject: [CPEO-MEF] RAB Rule proposed

Today, January 28, 2005, the Defense Department published its proposed
rule on Restoration Advisory Boards in the Federal Register, pp.


32 CFR Part 202

Restoration Advisory Boards (RABs)

AGENCY: Department of Defense, Office of the Deputy Under Secretary of
Defense (Installations and Environment), DoD.

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: The Department of Defense (DoD) requests public comment on
these proposed regulations regarding the scope, characteristics,
composition, funding, establishment, operation, adjournment, and
dissolution of Restoration Advisory Boards (RABs). DoD has proposed
these regulations in response to 10 U.S.C. 2705(d)(2)(A), which requires
the Secretary of Defense to prescribe regulations regarding RABs.

The propose of the RAB is to facilitate public participation in DoD
environmental restoration activities and active and closing DoD
installations and formerly used defense sites where local communities
express interest in such activities. The proposed regulations are based
on DoD's current policies for reestablishing and operating RABs, as well
as DoD's experience over the past ten years in using RABs.

DATES: Comments on this proposed rule must be submitted on or before
March 29, 2005.
