which has a Flyway Council. Representatives from the Service, the 
Service's Migratory Bird Regulations Committee, and Flyway Council 
Consultants will meet on January 28, 2015, at 11:00 a.m. to identify 
preliminary issues concerning the 2015-16 migratory bird hunting 
regulations for discussion and review by the Flyway Councils at their 
March meetings.
