  group dealing with this issue, made up of federal agents,                    
  EPA and state officials.

  AND OPERATION, DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION,                     
  clarified that the DEC has been working on the project for                   
  about a year and a half and there is a 45 member group made                  
  up of federal and state officials, and various                               
  representatives of Native groups that have created the                       
  information in SJR 25.  The resolution is a compilation of                   
  the ideas from the working group to advance the cause of                     
  rural sanitation.  This resolution, by going straight to the                 
  federal government, will force the federal agencies to                       
  prioritize and coordinate the activities within the state,                   
  with the Clinton administration.
