After the June 25th open meeting for T-PAS in which industry is invited 
(Nuthin fancy in Roswell at 11:00am), the next business meeting of T-PAS 
will be held on July 17th in Roswell at Marios Restaurant at 11:00.  Topics 
of discussion will include preparation of explicit field and report 
standards that exceed the BLM guidelines. BLM standards have recently been 
revised but they are minimal guidelines and there is a need for additional 
guidance in this area.  The goal is to raise the quality of work and have 
the BLM help enforce these professional standards. These will be formally 
presented by the group at the July 31 permittee meeting that is being hosted 
by the BLM.  The NM state initiatives will also be discussed at this July 
17th meeting (re: L.Sebastian's announcement). Representatives for this 
workshop will be selected.
