                experts to submit information to the Commission; hold 
                hearings on relevant issues; and form committees and 
                teams to assist the Commission in accomplishing its 
                objectives and duties, which may include individuals 
                other than members of the Commission.
                Sec. 3. Administration. (a) The heads of executive 
                departments and agencies shall, to the extent permitted 
                by law, provide the Commission such information with 
                respect to aviation safety and security as the 
                Commission requires to fulfill its functions.
                    (b) The Commission shall be supported, both 
                administratively and financially, by the Department of

                functions of the President under the Federal Advisory 
                Committee Act, as amended, shall be performed by the 
                Secretary of Transportation in accordance with the 
                guidelines and procedures established by the 
                Administrator of General Services, except that of 
                reporting to the Congress.
                    (b) The Commission shall exist for a period of 6 
                months from the date of this order, unless extended by
