    The Federal Advisory Committee Act requires that notices of 
meetings of advisory committees be announced in the Federal Register 15 
days prior to the meeting date. This notice of the teleconference 
meeting of the HSAC is published in the Federal Register with less than 
15 days' due to the complexity of the issue, the task force was not 
able to complete its report within this aggressive time line in time 
for deliver to the HSAC at its September 24-25 meeting. Waiting for the 
full 15 day notice period to conduct the teleconference will delay the 
discussion of the report to a period of time that will prevent the 
Secretary from meeting with the HSAC to review the report due to her 
travel schedule. In order to not delay receipt of the recommendations 
from the HSAC this teleconference is being announced with less than 15 
days' notice. Since this is a meeting by teleconference, members of the 
public do to not have to travel to attend, and the task force report is 
available to the public prior to the meeting for review and comment by 
members of the public in accordance with procedures provided above.
