"It is hereby declared to be the policy of the United States that the public is entitled to the fullest practicable information regarding the decisionmaking processes of the Federal Government." P. L. 94-409, Section 2

The Government in the Sunshine Act (P. L. 94-409, 90 Stat. 1241) requires that meetings of agencies headed by a collegial body composed of two or more individual members-a majority of whom are appointed to such position by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate-must be open to public observation. In fact, every portion of every meeting of an agency, in which the Members dispose of agency business, shall be open to public observation, unless otherwise provided for in the Act.

On December 8, 2010, the MSPB will hold a Sunshine Act Meeting at 395 E Street, SW, Washington, DC from 10:00-12:00.

In addition, the public may send comments regarding the proposed Agenda to [email protected] no later than December 31, 2010.
