  • Advisory Council Meeting I Feb. 22, 2012

Work on the compact is not yet complete, and comments and feedback on the current draft are welcome and encouraged.  The drafting team and advisory council are in the process of consulting stakeholders and soliciting additional feedback so that they may improve upon the working draft.
