Under the provisions of Section 14 of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (5 U.S.C. App. I), each advisory committee created by the President or any other officer of the Executive Branch and subject to the provisions of this Act-in existence on the effective date of the Act, January 5, 1973-will terminate on January 5, 1975, unless renewed by the President or other appropriate officer.

During the period elapsed since the Federal Advisory Committee Act was enacted, all Federal advisory committees subject to that Act have been thoroughly examined and reexamined to determine whether they should be continued, modified, abolished, or allowed to terminate. In that period, more than 300 Federal advisory committees have been abolished or allowed to terminate.

All advisory committees created by the President before the effective date of the Act and subject to the provisions of the Act have been carefully examined. I have determined that those listed in Section 1 of this Order should be continued until January 5, 1977, unless terminated sooner. I have also determined that the advisory committees listed in Section 2 of this Order, created after the effective date of the Federal Advisory Committee Act-expiring under the terms of that Act before January 5, 1977-should be continued until that date, unless terminated sooner.

Now, THEREFORE, I, GERALD R. FORD, by virtue of the authority vested in me as President of the United States of America, particularly by the Federal Advisory Committee Act, do hereby order as follows:

SECTION 1. The following listed advisory committees are hereby continued until January 5, 1977, unless otherwise sooner terminated-

(1) Citizens' Advisory Committee on Environmental Quality-Executive Order No. 11472 of May 29, 1969, as amended (Council on Environmental Quality).

(2) Quetico-Superior Committee-Executive Order No. 11342 of April 10, 1967 (Department of Agriculture).

(3) Advisory Council for Minority Enterprise-Executive Order No. 11625 of October 13, 1971 (Department of Commerce).

(4) Consumer Advisory Council-Executive Order No. 11583 of February 24, 1971, as amended (Department of Health, Education, and Welfare).

(5) President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports-Executive Order No. 11562 of September 25, 1970 (Department of Health, Education, and Welfare).

(6) Committee for the Preservation of the White House-Executive Order No. 11145 of March 7, 1964, as amended (Department of the Interior).

(7) Citizens' Advisory Council on the Status of Women-Executive Order No. 11126 of November 1, 1963, as amended (Department of Labor).

(8) President's Advisory Committee on the Environmental Merit Awards Program-Executive Order No. 11667 of April 19, 1972 (Environmental Protection Agency).

(9) National Health Resources Advisory Committee-Executive Order No. 11415 of June 24, 1968, as amended (General Services Administration).

(10) President's Committee on the National Medal of Science-Executive Order No. 11287 of June 28, 1966, as amended (National Science Foundation).

(11) President's Commission on White House Fellowships-Executive Order No. 11183 of October 3, 1964, as amended (Civil Service Commission).

SEC. 2. The following listed advisory committees are hereby continued until January 5, 1977, unless terminated sooner-

(1) President's Export Council-Executive Order No. 11753 of December 20, 1973 (Department of Commerce).

(2) President's Committee on Mental Retardation-Executive Order No. 11776 of March 28, 1974 (Department of Health, Education, and Welfare).

(3) Federal Advisory Council on Occupational Safety and Health-Executive Order No. 11807 of September 28, 1974 (Department of Labor).

(4) Energy Research and Development Advisory Council-Presidential Announcement of June 29, 1973 (National Science Foundation).

(5) Ad Hoc Advisory Group on Puerto Rico-Presidential Announcement of September 27, 1973 (Domestic Council).

SEC. 3. The department or agency listed after the advisory committees listed in Section 1 and Section 2 of this Order shall perform such functions with respect to the committee involved as may be required by the Federal Advisory Committee Act.

SEC. 4. Advisory committees created by the President before January 5, 1973, which are subject to the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, and which have not been continued by Section 1 of this Order, will, unless sooner terminated under the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, terminate as of January 5, 1975.
