Subject: RAB Guidelines
I'm wondering if anyone can shed some light on why the DOD RAB
guidelines dropped FFERDC language that says, "... representatives
of citizen, environmental and public interest groups" in favor
of "...community members should reflect the diverse interests
within the local community"? The new guidelines also say that
each individual should provide advice as an individual, not as
a group. 

One interpretation is that DOD, as reflected in the new RAB
guidelines, is attempting to assure that there is as little
agreement among the RAB members as possible thus reducing
the potential for any effective opposition to their complete
control over the remediation process.

I'm interested in any of your interpretations of this.

I am following the RAB process at Ft. Ord. I'd love to hear
from RAB members at other bases. What concerns do you have?
The Ft. Ord RAB is now in the process of rewriting their
by-laws for the 8th time. Have your by-laws been finalized?
Are you happy with the results?
