President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board to Hold Public Meeting


The President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board will hold its next public meeting Aug. 27, 2010 via conference call beginning at 2 p.m. Eastern Time to continue discussion of issues impacting the strength and competitiveness of the nation’s economy.

The discussion–open to the public via live audio stream at White House Live–will include an update on the research and preparatory work conducted in the PERAB subcommittees. The tax reform subcommittee of the PERAB will present a report during the meeting, which discusses the pros and cons of reform ideas relating to tax simplification, enforcement of existing tax laws and reform of the corporate tax system, without considering policies that would raise taxes on families making less than $250,000. The PERAB will vote on presenting the report from the tax reform subcommittee as formal advice to the president.

The public is invited to submit written statements to the advisory committee through the Public Comment tool on the PERAB website.

Generally, all statements will be posted on the White House website without change, including any business or personal information provided. The Department of the Treasury will also make such statements available for public inspection and copying in the department’s library on official business days between 10  a.m. and 5 p.m. EST.

Individuals can make an appointment to inspect statements by telephoning 202-622-0990. All statements received, including attachments and other supporting materials, become public record and subject to public disclosure.
