|Curtailment of Delta ISB Activities||
As discussed at recent Delta ISB meetings, the current appointment structure of Delta ISB members necessitates greatly curtailing the agenda and activities of the Delta ISB to a much lower level. Substantial delays in many of the Delta ISB’s anticipated and legislatively mandated reviews, products, and activities are expected. The Delta ISB is committed to supporting science for the Delta's problems and problem-solving, and looks forward to returning to its high level of productivity as soon as the State fully resolves this issue.
The Delta Science Program will present initial findings on its assessment of the Delta ISB, which aims to analyze the perceptions and the impacts of the Delta ISB and its products over the last 10 years. Based on the initial findings from this presentation, the Delta ISB will discuss how it may want to approach the scope and format of future reviews.
This section describes the highlights. For more information about the meeting, refer to the agenda below.
The agenda items listed below may be considered in a different order pursuant to the determination of the Delta ISB chair. Times listed on the agenda are approximate only.
