Role of Policy Committee (PC)
The SAMI Policy Committee is responsible for developing strategies to be modeled by the technical committee and recommending the most promising of these to the Operations Committee for consideration by the Governing Body. They often meet with the Technical Committee to advise them on possible policy implications of technical decisions. It is composed of 35 members. Each SAMI state nominates three persons one each from industry, government and the public interest sectors. EPA Region I, Region IV and Headquarters are represented. The USFS and National Park Service each are represented and jointly appoint a public interest and an industry representative.

Current PC Projects
The Policy Committee completed their descriptions of three strategies that were under discussion since the summer of 1999.  The Bold strategy takes an assertive approach to applying technological controls to new sources.  Bold with constraints introduces economic and logistic considerations.  Beyond Bold often assumes state-of-the-art controls are applied to many sources within each source sector.  The PC is beginning discussions on the incentives that may be used to encourage permit holders to reduce emissions voluntarily.
