The Wildlife & Sport Fish Restoration (WSFR) program has established a Subject Matter Expert (SME) team as part of the JTF-SOP for Policy to establish a process for both WSFR and State representatives to review and provide proposed updates to 50 CFR 80 "Administrative Requirements, Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration and Dingell-Johnson Sport Fish Restoration Acts".  The scope of the SME teams efforts were to: (1) review and make alignments with 2 CFR 200; (2) incorporated legislative changes as a result of passage of the Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act and the Modernizing the Pittman-Robertson Fund for Tomorrow's Needs Act; (3) incorporate changes and updates to license certification requirements at the request of AFWA and the JTF; (4) provide technical changes, clarifications, and enhancements; and (5) provide changes supported by WSFR management and/or identified through the JTF.
