Title: ●Administrative Requirements Under the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration and Dingell-Johnson Sport Fish Restoration Acts; Phase 2 of 4 

We continue the process of directing State fish and wildlife agencies on how to receive funds and implement conservation projects under the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act and Dingell-Johnson Sport Fish Restoration Act. Under these Acts, we distribute annual apportionments to States from trust funds derived from excise tax revenues and fuel taxes. This is the second phase of a four-phase rulemaking. This phase will possibly include response to pending bills before Congress; include some more difficult topics through the ANPRM; and propose changes to more settled topics, including definitions, topics related to the continued Federal connection to the project, audits, third-party labor, and contact information on coordination grants. We will publish an advance notice of proposed rulemaking with a proposed rule. Further information, as it becomes available, will be posted at
