Title: Administrative Requirements Under the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration and Dingell-Johnson Sport Fish Restoration Acts, Part 2 of 3 

We would update the rule that directs 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. In this rule update, we would: (1) Amend the rule to address changes required following passage of Public Law 116-17 (May 10, 2019) and Public Law 116-94 (December 20, 2019); (2) adjust the full rule to better reflect the terminology and content of 2 CFR 200, Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (December 26, 2013); (3) make technical changes in the rule to improve clarity and understanding; (4) resolve topics that we have identified to be addressed based on comments to prior rulemakings; and (5) address any emerging topics. We will continue to work with our partners to determine best approaches for this and future rulemakings in order to consider resources and allow for active engagement in commenting. The preamble will thoroughly describe our approach and reasons for proposed changes. We have and will continue to work with States and the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies when engaging in rule updates.
