2019), re-established the President's Advisory Commission on Asian
Americans and
[[Page 30685]]
Pacific Islanders to advise the President, through the Secretary of
Commerce and the Secretary of Transportation. The AAPI Advisory
Commission provides advice to the President on executive branch efforts
to broaden access of AAPI communities, families and businesses to
economic resources and opportunities that empower AAPIs to improve the
quality of their lives, raise the standard of living of their
communities and families, and more fully participate in the U.S.
economy.
 Public Participation. In accordance with Section 10(a)(2) of the
Federal Advisory Committee Act, as amended (5 U.S.C. App.), this notice
is the public announcement of the Commission's intent to hold a
teleconference on May 20, 2020. This meeting is open to the public and
interested persons may listen to the teleconference by using the call-
in number and pass code set forth above (see ADDRESSES). Prospective
agenda items for the meeting include a deliberation of the draft
Commission report to the President, discussion regarding ratification
of the report, administrative tasks and such other Commission business
as may arise during the meeting. The Commission welcomes interested
persons to submit written comments at any time before or after the
meeting to the Office of the White House Initiative on Asian Americans
and Pacific Islanders (see FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT). To
facilitate distribution of written comments to Commission members prior
to the meeting, the Commission suggests that comments be submitted by
facsimile or by email no later than May 19, 2020. The Commission will
reserve a portion of the meeting to receive pertinent oral comments
from members of the public.
 Copies of the Commission open meeting minutes will be made
available to the public.
 This announcement might appear in the Federal Register less than 15
days prior to the meeting. The Minority Business Development Agency
finds that there is an exceptional circumstance in that this advisory
committee meeting must be held on May 20, 2020 due scheduling issues
related to the public health crisis.
