                By the authority vested in me as President by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of 
                America, I hereby direct the Secretary of Health and 
                Human Services to exercise her discretion as follows:

                Section 1. Establishment. (a) The Secretary of Health 
                and Human Services (the ``Secretary'') shall establish 
                an HIV/AIDS Advisory Council (the ``Advisory Council'' 
                or the ``Council''), to be known as the Presidential 
                Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS. The Advisory Council 
                shall be composed of not more than 30 members to be 
                appointed or designated by the Secretary. The Advisory 
                Council shall comply with the Federal Advisory 
                Committee Act, as amended (5 U.S.C. App.).

                    (b) The Secretary shall designate a Chairperson 
                from among the members of the Advisory Council.

                Sec. 2. Functions. The Advisory Council shall provide 
                advice, information, and recommendations to the 
                Secretary regarding programs and policies intended to 
                (a) promote effective prevention of HIV disease, (b) 
                advance research on HIV and AIDS, and (c) promote 
                quality services to persons living with HIV disease and 
                AIDS. The functions of the Advisory Council shall be 
                solely advisory in nature. The Secretary shall provide 
                the President with copies of all written reports 
                provided to the Secretary by the Advisory Council.

                Sec. 3. Administration. (a) The heads of executive 
                departments and agencies shall, to the extent permitted 
                by law, provide the Advisory Council with such 
                information as it may require for purposes of carrying 
                out its functions.

                    (b) Any members of the Advisory Council that 
                receive compensation shall be compensated in accordance 
                with Federal law. Committee members may be allowed 
                travel expenses, including per diem in lieu of 
                subsistence, to the extent permitted by law for persons 
                serving intermittently in the Government service (5 
                U.S.C. section 5701-5707).
                    (c) To the extent permitted by law, and subject to 
                the availability of appropriations, the Department of 
                Health and Human Services shall provide the Advisory 
                Council with such funds and support as may be necessary 
                for the performance of its functions.

                Sec. 4. General Provisions. (a) Notwithstanding the 
                provisions of any other Executive order, any functions 
                of the President under the Federal Advisory Committee
