The Umbrella Mitigation plan is one of the foul discharges of the outgoing Bush Administration, as it seeks to let sprawl developers and polluters get away with simply paying a fee to destroy as much habitat as they like and pollute as much water as they like. Because someday, somewhere, an equivalent amount of habitat will be protected.
If enough people ask, the Corp of Engineers will hold one. Its up to you and to all of us! Read Army Corps of Engineers' Public Notice about the meeting
