an additional two years pursuant to the Department of Commerce 
authority under 15 U.S.C. 1512 and the Federal Advisory Committee Act 
(FACA), as amended, 5 U.S.C. App.
    The Council advises the Secretary of Commerce on matters relating 
to the U.S. manufacturing industry, including on government policies 
and programs that affect the U.S. manufacturing industry and 
identifying and recommending programs and policies to help United 
States manufacturers maintain competitiveness both at home and abroad.

the U.S. Government and the manufacturing sector, acting as a liaison 
among the stakeholders represented by the membership, and may provide a 
forum for those stakeholders on current and emerging issues in the 
manufacturing sector. The Council shall recommend ways to ensure that 
the United States remains the preeminent destination for investment in 
manufacturing throughout the world.

recommendations regarding United States manufacturing. In creating the 
reports, the Council should: survey and evaluate the manufacturing 
activities of the stakeholders represented by the membership; identify 
and examine specific problems facing the manufacturing industry; 
examine the needs of the industry to inform the Council's efforts; and 
recommend specific solutions to these problems and needs.
    The Council functions solely as an advisory committee in accordance

    Members will be selected in accordance with applicable Department 
of Commerce guidelines based on each individual's ability to advise the 
Secretary of Commerce on matters relating to the U.S. manufacturing 
sector, to act as a liaison among the stakeholders represented by the
