authorizations using a programmatic approach
• Develop time and cost estimates for obtaining individual permit
authorizations using a programmatic approach
• Draft report is currently under review by stakeholders
• Final report to be completed by December 31, 2013
• Pursuit of GP’s to start in early 2014
