The Board may also consider companion Temporary Special Actions in order to immediately implement regulatory changes adopted by the Board. These actions may be needed because publication of the regulations will be delayed due to the recent lapse in funding of the federal government budget.

The meeting will be held from 1:30 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. on Monday, April 15, and then daily from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., or until the Board calls a recess for the day or completes its work. A meeting agenda and associated meeting materials are available for download at www.doi.gov/subsistence/board.

The public is encouraged to participate either in person or by teleconference. Throughout the meeting, there will be opportunities for the public to testify on both agenda and non-agenda items. At the start of each day, public comments on general subsistence issues are welcome. Public comments that relate to specific agenda items will be sought during the period in which the relevant agenda item is addressed.

To participate in this meeting by teleconference, dial toll-free (888) 455-5897; the passcode is 3344290.
