                of Digital Television Broadcasters

                By the authority vested in me as President by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of 
                America, including the Federal Advisory Committee Act, 
                as amended (5 U.S.C. App.) (the ``Act''), and in order 
                to establish an advisory committee on the public 
                interest obligations of digital television 
                broadcasters, it is hereby ordered as follows:

                Section 1. Establishment. There is established the 
                ``Advisory Committee on the Public Interest Obligations 
                of Digital Television Broadcasters'' (``Committee''). 
                The Committee shall consist of not more than 15 members 
                appointed by the President. Members shall be chosen 
                from the private sector, including members of the 
                commercial and noncommercial broadcasting industry, 
                computer industries, producers, academic institutions, 
                public interest organizations, and the advertising 
                community. The President shall designate a Chair from 
                among the members of the Committee.

                Sec. 2. Functions. On or before June 1, 1998, the 
                Committee shall report to the Vice President on the 
                public interest obligations digital television 
                broadcasters should assume. For the purpose of carrying 
                out its functions the Committee may, in consultation 
                with the Assistant Secretary of Commerce for 
                Communications and Information, hold meetings at such 
                times and places as the Committee may find advisable.

                Sec. 3. Administration. (a) To the extent permitted by 
                law, the heads of executive departments, agencies, and 
                independent instrumentalities shall provide the 
                Committee, upon request, with such information as it 
                may require for the purpose of carrying out its 
                functions.

                    (b) Upon request of the Chair of the Committee, the 
                head of any executive department, agency, or 
                instrumentality shall, to the extent permitted by law 
                and subject to the discretion of such head, (1) make 
                any of the facilities and services of such department, 
                agency, or instrumentality available to the Committee; 
                and (2) detail any of the personnel of such department, 
                agency, or instrumentality to the Committee to assist 
                the Committee in carrying out its duties.
                    (c) Members of the Committee shall serve without 
                compensation for their work on the Committee. While 
                engaged in the work of the Committee, members appointed 
                from the private sector may be allowed travel expenses, 
                including per diem in lieu of subsistence, as 
                authorized by law and as the Chair, in consultation 
                with the Assistant Secretary of Commerce for 
                Communications and Information, may allow as needed, 
                for persons serving intermittently in the Government 
                service (5 U.S.C. 5701-5707), to the extent funds are 
                available for such purposes.
                    (d) To the extent permitted by law and subject to 
                the availability of appropriations, the Department of 
                Commerce shall provide the Committee with 
                administrative services, staff, and other support 
                services necessary for performance of the Committee's 
                functions.
