The President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board (PERAB) will hold its next public meeting on August 27, 2010 via conference call beginning at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The meeting will be open to the public via live audio stream at http://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/live.
The purpose of this meeting is to continue discussion of the issues impacting the strength and competitiveness of the Nation's economy. The discussion will include an update on the research and preparatory work conducted in the PERAB subcommittees. The tax reform subcommittee of the PERAB will present a report during the meeting, which discusses the pros and cons of a spectrum of reform ideas relating to tax simplification, enforcement of existing tax laws and reform of the corporate tax system, without considering policies that would raise taxes on families making less than $250,000. The PERAB will vote on presenting the report from the tax reform subcommittee as formal advice to the President.
