BANGOR – The USDA’s State Technical Committee meeting for Maine from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, March 20, at the USDA State Office conference room, 967 Illinois Ave. The meeting is open to the public.

The State Technical Committee (STTC) assists the USDA in matters relating to the implementation and technical aspects of conservation programs under the Farm Bill. The committee is traditionally composed of agricultural producers and other professionals that represent a variety of disciplines in soil, water, wetland and wildlife sciences. The STTC includes representatives from several agencies including the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), the Farm Service Agency (FSA) and the Maine Forest Service.

The State Technical Committee meets regularly to provide information, analysis and recommendations to USDA officials charged with implementing the conservation provisions under the Farm Bill. The Committee’s role is advisory in nature, and has no implementation of enforcement authority.

Persons with disabilities who require accommodations to attend or participate in this meeting should contact NRCS Assistant State Resource Conservationist Tony Jenkins at (207) 990-9557 or tony.jenkins@usda.gov by March 13, 2019, to request accommodations.
