AK Survey


 
STATES AT THE TABLE is a joint project of the Council of State Governments (CSG) and the Association of Air Pollution Control Agencies (AAPCA). This project seeks to develop a comprehensive resource for state leaders from all three branches of government regarding opportunities to interact with federal energy and environmental agencies through Federal Advisory Committees (FACs). In particular, this site will catalogue FACs of interest at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and U.S. Department of Interior (DOI), as well as provide an introduction to the Federal Advisory Committee Act. Providing information on meetings, activities, history, and openings with these influential FACs can help state officials navigate an alphabet soup of federal agencies, promote federalism on complex energy and environmental issues, and provide interested state officials with a potential “seat at the table” with their federal counterparts in the early stages of regulatory, scientific, or intergovernmental decision making.

 

 

In June 2017, the Environmental Council of the States released Cooperative Federalism 2.0: Achieving and Maintaining a Clean Environment and Protecting Public Health.
