                the Department of Defense the ``President's Advisory 
                Board on Arms Proliferation Policy'' (``Board''). The 
                Board shall consist of five members who shall be 
                appointed by the President from among persons in 
                private life who are noted for their stature and 
                expertise regarding the proliferation of strategic and 
                advanced conventional weapons and are from diverse 
                backgrounds. The President shall designate one of the 
                members as Chairperson of the Board.

                 Sec. 2. Functions. The Board shall advise the

                conventional arms transfer policy, other issues related 
                to arms proliferation policy, and on other matters 
                deemed appropriate by the President. The Board shall 
                report to the President through the Assistant to the 
                President for National Security Affairs.

                 Sec. 3. Administration. (a) The heads of executive 
                agencies shall, to the extent permitted by law, provide 
                to the Board such information as it may require for the 
                purpose of carrying out its functions.

                     (b) Members of the Board shall serve without 
                compensation, but shall be allowed travel expenses, 
                including per diem in lieu of subsistence, as 
                authorized by law, including 5 U.S.C. 5701-5707 and 
                section 7(d) of the Act, for persons serving 
                intermittently in government service.
                     (c) The Department of Defense or the head of any 
                other Federal department or agency may detail to the 
                Board, upon request of the Chairperson of the Board, 
                any of the personnel of the department or agency to 
                assist the Board in carrying out its duties.
                     (d) The Secretary of Defense shall designate a 
                federally funded research and development center with 
                expertise in the matters covered by the Board to 
                provide the Board with such support services as the 
                Board may need to carry out its duties.
                     (e) The Department of Defense shall provide the 
                Board with administrative services, facilities, staff, 
                and other support services necessary for the 
                performance of its functions.

                 Sec. 4. General. (a) The Board shall terminate 30 days 
                after the date on which the President submits the final 
                report of the Board to the Congress.

                     (b) For reasons of national security or for such 
                other reasons as specified in section 552(b) of title 
                5, United States Code, the Board shall not provide 
                public notice or access to meetings at which national

                advice and consent of the Senate.
                     (c) Information made available to the Board shall 
                be given all necessary security protection in 
                accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
