The next field trip and meeting of the Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) California Desert Advisory Council (DAC) will be held December 2-3, 2011, in Redondo Beach, CA.  The council will participate in a field tour of BLM-managed public lands on Friday, December 2, 2011, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and meet in formal session on Saturday, December 3, 2011, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza Redondo Beach, 300 N. Harbor Drive, Redondo Beach, CA.

The meeting focus topic will be the National Landscape Conservation System (NLCS). Agenda topics for the formal session on Saturday will include an NLCS overview briefing, updates by Council members, reports from the BLM District Manager and five field office managers, renewable energy update, and reports from DAC appointed subgroups. Friday tour information and final agenda topics will be posted on the BLM California state website at: http://www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/info/rac/dac.html
 
All DAC meetings and field trips are open to the public. The public will be invited to comment at the beginning of the meeting Saturday morning, during the presentations at the discretion of the DAC chair, and at the end of the meeting.  While the meeting is tentatively scheduled to conclude at 5 p.m., it could wrap up earlier should the council conclude its presentations and discussions.

For the public planning to participate in the Friday field tour, you are encouraged to meet at the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium at 9:00 a.m. rather than the hotel in order to avoid hotel parking costs.  Hotel parking fees will be in effect for the Saturday public meeting. The aquarium is the first stop of the tour and is located at 3720 Stephen M White Dr., San Pedro, CA.

Written comments may be filed in advance of the meeting and should be addressed to the Desert Advisory Council, c/o Bureau of Land Management, External Affairs, 22835 Calle San Juan de Los Lagos, Moreno Valley, CA 92553. Written comments also are accepted at the time of the meeting and, if copies are provided to the recorder, will be incorporated into the minutes.

Senate Introduces Legislation to Ensure Appropriate Safety Standards for Side-by
On February 18, 2015, BRC's Don Amador, a SXS enthusiast, asked you to contact Congress because federal regulators were trying to impose their "street-oriented" view on SXS users and the industry by proposing a Rule which could have devastated SXS recreation. BRC asked you to send an email urging your representative to cosponsor H.R. 999 -- The ROV In-Depth Examination Act. Your response was awesome!  That House bill has gained a lot of support.
