§ 0.701   Intergovernmental Advisory Committee.

   (a) Purpose and term of operations. The Intergovernmental Advisory
   Committee (IAC) is established to facilitate intergovernmental
   communication between municipal, county, state and tribal governments
   and the Federal Communications Commission. The IAC will commence
   operations with its first meeting convened under this section and is
   authorized to undertake its mission for a period of two years from that
   date. At his discretion, the Chairman of the Federal Communications
   Commission may extend the IAC's term of operations for an additional
   two years, for which new members will be appointed as set forth in
   paragraph (b) of this section. Pursuant to Section 204(b) of the
   Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995, 2 U.S.C. 1534(b), the IAC is not
   subject to, and is not required to follow, the procedures set forth in
   the Federal Advisory Committee Act. 5 U.S.C., App. 2 (1988).

   (b) Membership. The IAC will be composed of the following 15 members
   (or their designated employees): Four elected municipal officials (city
   mayors and city council members); two elected county officials (county
   commissioners or council members); one elected or appointed local
   government attorney; one elected state executive (governor or
   lieutenant governor); three elected state legislators; one elected or
   appointed public utilities or public service commissioner; and three
   elected or appointed Native American tribal representatives. The
   Chairman of the Commission will appoint members through an application
   process initiated by a Public Notice, and will select a Chairman and a
   Vice Chairman to lead the IAC. The Chairman of the Commission will also
   appoint members to fill any vacancies and may replace an IAC member, at
   his discretion, using the appointment process. Members of the IAC are

   IAC business and will not be reimbursed by the Commission for such

   (c) Location and frequency of meetings. The IAC will meet in

   be limited to IAC members or employees designated by IAC members to act
   on their behalf. Members unable to attend an IAC meeting should notify
   the IAC Chairman a reasonable time in advance of the meeting and
   provide the name of the employee designated on their behalf. With the
   exception of Commission staff and individuals or groups having business
   before the IAC, no other persons may attend or participate in an IAC
