    The agenda for the meeting provides for a charge by the Secretary

concerned with information that is exempt from disclosure under 5 
U.S.C. 552b(c)(9)(A). The public interest requires that such meetings

committees established by the several major segments of the financial 
community. When so utilized, such a committee is recognized to be an 
advisory committee under 5 U.S.C. App. 2, Sec.  3.
    Although the Treasury's final announcement of financing plans may 
not reflect the recommendations provided in reports of the Committee, 
premature disclosure of the Committee's deliberations and reports would 
be likely to lead to significant financial speculation in the 
securities market. Thus, this meeting falls within the exemption 
covered by 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(9)(A).
    Treasury staff will provide a technical briefing to the press on 
the day before the Committee meeting, following the release of a 
statement of economic conditions and financing estimates. This briefing 
will give the press an opportunity to ask questions about financing 
projections. The day after the Committee meeting, Treasury will release 
the minutes of the meeting, any charts that were discussed at the 
meeting, and the Committee's report to the Secretary.

activities and such other matters as may be informative to the public

Officer or other responsible agency official who may be contacted for 
additional information is Fred Pietrangeli, Deputy Director for Office 
of Debt Management (202) 622-1876.
