Title: Administrative Requirements Under the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration and Dingell-Johnson Sport Fish Restoration Acts 

This proposed rule would direct 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, FWS distributes annual apportionments to States from trust funds derived from excise tax revenues and fuel taxes. FWS will propose to amend the current regulations to: (1) Align them with changes provided by Public Law 116-17 (May 10, 2019) and Public Law 116-94 (December 20, 2019); (2) adjust them to better reflect the terminology and content of 2 CFR part 200, Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (December 26, 2013); (3) make technical changes to improve clarity and understanding; (4) resolve topics that FWS has identified to be addressed based on comments to prior rulemakings; and (5) address any emerging topics. FWS would continue to work with its partners to determine best approaches for this and future rulemakings in order to consider resources and allow for active engagement in commenting. FWS has worked, and would continue to work, with States and the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies when engaging in rule updates.
