(c) Section 3 is amended by deleting the second, third, and fourth sentences and inserting in lieu thereof the following: "The Task Force shall ensure official attention to and facilitate action on matters related to proposals for Puerto Rico's status and provide advice and recommendations on such matters to the President and the Congress. The Task Force shall also identify and promote existing Federal initiatives that benefit Puerto Rico; provide advice and recommendations to the President and the Congress on the treatment of Puerto Rico in Federal programs; and provide advice and recommendations to the President and the Congress on policies and initiatives that promote job creation, education, health care, clean energy, and economic development on the islands."

(d) Section 4 is amended by deleting the first sentence and inserting in lieu thereof the following: "The Task Force shall submit to the President a report on the actions it has taken to perform the functions set forth in section 3 no later than 1 year from the date of this order.

See 48 C.F.R. 31.205-21."
