The Commission will meet from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Its three subcommittees will meet from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
The Commission will review the Executive Order, including its reporting deadlines; establish a draft work plan; discuss how it will engage the public in its work; discuss how it will function, deliberate and make decisions; and address how Commission members will interact and work with the three subcommittees.
Following the Commission meeting, the three subcommittees will meet and develop work plans to accomplish the tasks set out for them in the Executive Order.
There will be no lunch break, so the Commission recommends that attendees bring a lunch.
At the end of the subcommittee meetings Commission Co-Chairs Tom Little and Jake Perkinson will be available to speak with the public and the news media.
