GLIN==> Great Lakes Regional Hearing - U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy: September24 & 25, Chicago, IL



Great Lakes Regional Hearing:  September 24 & 25, Chicago, IL
The 16-member U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy is in the midst of a series
of nine regional public meetings around the nation with the purpose of
hearing testimony on ocean and coastal issues. Ultimately, the Commission
will make recommendations on a national ocean policy to the President and
Congress in 2003. It is anticipated that significant legislation on ocean
policy will result from the recommendations of the Commission and the
President. The last effort of such proportions resulted in the Stratton
Commission's report in 1969.


The meetings are not limited, however, to the ocean and its coasts.  In
September of this year there will be a two-day hearing on Great Lakes
issues.  The hearings will be held in Chicago at the Shedd Aquarium on
September 24th and 25th, with both days of hearings open to the public.
While there will be scheduled hearings, there is an opportunity for public
comment, usually toward the end of the second day of hearings.  For more
information see the Commission's website http://www.oceancommission.gov/.
