                Gulf War Veterans' Illnesses

                By the authority vested in me as President by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of 
                America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

                Section 1. Extension. The Presidential Advisory 
                Committee on Gulf War Veterans' Illnesses (the 
                ``Committee''), established pursuant to Executive Order 
                12961 of May 26, 1995, is hereby extended for the 
                purposes set forth herein. All provisions of that order 
                relating to membership and administration shall remain 
                in effect. All Committee appointments, as well as the 
                President's designation of a Chairperson, shall remain 
                in effect. The limitations set forth in section 2(c)-
                (e) and section 4(a) of Executive Order 12961 shall 
                also remain in effect. The Committee shall remain 
                subject to the Federal Advisory Committee Act, as 
                amended, 5 U.S.C. App. 2.

                Sec. 2. Functions. (a) The Committee shall report to

                    (b) The Committee shall have two principal roles:
                      (1) Oversight of the ongoing investigation being 
                conducted by the Department of Defense with the 
                assistance, as appropriate, of other executive 
                departments and agencies into possible chemical or 
                biological warfare agent exposures during the Gulf War; 
                      (2) Evaluation of the Federal Government's plan 
                for and progress towards the implementation of the 
                Committee's recommendations contained in its Final 
                Report submitted on December 31, 1996.
                    (c) The Committee shall provide advice and 
                recommendations related to its oversight and evaluation 
                    (d) The Committee may also provide additional 
                advice and recommendations prompted by any new 
                developments related to its original functions as set 
                forth in section 2(b) of Executive Order 12961.
                    (e) The Committee shall submit by letter a status 
                report by April 30, 1997, and a final supplemental

                internal management of the executive branch and it is 
                not intended to create any right, benefit or trust

                its agencies, its officers, or any person.

                    (Presidential Sig.)

                THE WHITE HOUSE,
