Notes:

The URA Timeline

It is important to recognize that the URA is a law with over 30 years of history behind it. Originally the Federal agencies individually implemented their own regulations. Only in 1989 was a unified rule issued. This is the first reissue of a revised rule since then.

A brief history of the transition made over the last 30 years to implement the URA: Track the shift to a unified rule in 1989.
