  §  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 30 members (or their
   designated employees), with a minimum of: 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 responsible for travel and other
   incidental expenses incurred while on IAC business and will not be
   reimbursed by the Commission for such expenses.

   (c) Location and frequency of meetings. The IAC will meet in
   Washington, DC four times a year. Members must attend a minimum of
   fifty percent of the IAC's yearly meetings and may be removed by the
   Chairman of the IAC for failure to comply with this requirement.

   (d) Participation in IAC meetings. Participation at IAC meetings will
   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
