Chairman Hastings Letter to Chairwoman Sutley and Director Holdren Regarding the National Ocean Policy

WASHINGTON, D.C., July 18, 2013 - Dear Chairwoman Sutley and Director Holdren:

A letter was sent to the National Ocean Council ("Council") on April 19, 2013 requesting that 15 categories of documents and information be provided to the Committee on Natural Resources ("Committee") by May 10,2013. The Committee had previously requested much of the same information about the Obama Administration's ocean zoning plans in the 112th Congress, but the Council never provided it.

At a meeting on May 1,2013, Committee majority oversight staff specified that the Council should initially focus on providing responses to categories 1-3 and 9-14 of the April 19 request with the remaining information to be provided shortly thereafter. The Council provided a partial written response and only a limited number of supporting documents on May 10, 2013.

Read the entire letter HERE.
