16 U.S. Code § 460nnn–52 - Advisory role in management activities
(a) Management recommendations

(1) new and unique approaches to the management of lands within the boundaries of the Cooperative Management and Protection Area; and

The Secretary shall consult with the advisory committee  as part of the preparation and implementation of the management plan.
