Subject of possible rule making Reasons why rules on this subject may be needed and what might be accomplished

NOVA Program.

1. Acquisition projects-reduce the minimum land acquisition lease period for consistency with the recently adopted NOVA plan. 2. Development projects-revise outdated IAC-federal agency master agreement provisions. 3. Planning requirements-revise to exclude education-enforcement and maintenance applicants, in accord with the 2002 NOVA plan. 4. Advisory committee-pending the outcome of legislation now under consideration, revise the meaning of NOVA advisory committee to exclude agency representatives and include nonmotorized, motorized and NHR (sightseers, gatherers, hunters, fishers, etc.) representatives in accord with chapter 185, Laws of 2003.

Retroactive and increased costs.

Authorizes IAC's director to grant a waiver of retroactivity (provides approval to incur reimbursable costs) for development costs when state budget office directives suspend or otherwise delay grant program funding. Without this amendment, the standard rule prohibits reimbursement for certain expenditures or costs incurred without prior IAC approval.
