February 24, 2010 EMP-CC Quarterly Meeting Minutes

www.umrba.org [cached]

Charles Barton of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers called the meeting to order at 8:07 a.m. on February 24, 2010.

...
Charles Barton stressed the distinction between questions of authority verses questions of policy. Congress, of course, is the forum for pursuing authorization changes, said Barton. On questions of policy, he emphasized MVD's willingness to work with partners to seek necessary clarifications and sound changes. He reiterated Ivy's earlier statement that project fact sheet submissions are the best mechanisms for exploring policy questions. He added that asking for policy changes in the abstract, absent a specific project proposal, rarely results in the desired outcome, explaining that the context and facts of specific projects are what enable decision makers to understand the implications of their policy decisions. Barton said Corps HQ makes most policy determinations of the type relevant to EMP, adding that ASA(CW)-level review is not typically required.
...
Barton encouraged partners to take a progressive approach in working with EMP, noting that it is a fully functional restoration program with great potential.

Barton said that the Corps cannot lobby Congress, and thus is limited in how it can address policy issues in the RTC.

...
Given the NESP authority, Barton said it might be possible to successfully request a policy change extending this same authority to EMP.
...
Charles Barton said Schlagenhaft's concerns regarding EMP's partnership approach are shared internally within the Corps. He emphasized that this project will not set a precedent, but rather is an exception to the rule for EMP.
...
Barton said, if needed, MVP can request additional stimulus funds to complete planning.
