NOAA’s Marine Protected Areas (MPA) Federal Advisory Committee has the responsibility for commenting on NOAA’s MPA program. Notwithstanding its well defined charter, NOAA is not using the committee to address major policy issues.
CRE has recommended that OSTP, working with OMB, require that federal advisory committees give the public the right to comment on their proposed agendas.
