The Indiana Natural
Resources Commission (NRC) will conduct its next bimonthly meeting at 10
a.m. (ET) Tuesday, Nov. 13, at Fort Harrison State Park, in the Garrison
Ballroom, 6002 North Post Road in Indianapolis.
Among other things,
the NRC is scheduled to consider a request for preliminary adoption of the
repeal 312 IAC 18-3-21, which governs the control of hydrilla, a prohibited
invasive aquatic plant; the extension of the no-boating zone on the East
Swimming Beach located in Whihala Beach County Park in Whiting; and
amendments to the state’s roster of animals, insects, and plants which are
extirpated, endangered, threatened, or rare.
The NRC is an
autonomous board that addresses topics pertaining to the Indiana Department
of Natural Resources. NRC members include the DNR director, heads of three
other state agencies (Environmental Management, Tourism Development, and
Transportation), six citizens appointed by the governor on a bipartisan
basis, the chair of the DNR’s advisory council, and the president of the
Indiana Academy of Science.
