Good Morning MARMAM list serve Members,

The National Ocean Council announced that the public will have until 
July 2nd to comment on the strategic action plan outlines 
<http://www.whitehouse.gov/administration/eop/oceans/sap/> for each of 
the nine objectives in the National Ocean Policy. Writing teams composed 
of representatives from the National Ocean Council agencies developed 
these outlines to provide an initial view as to how federal agencies 
might address the priority objectives. They are preliminary documents 
that serve as an early and valuable point in the plan development 
process for focusing public and stakeholder input. We encourage you to 
submit comments
