Administration of the John F. Kennedy Centennial Commission

Date of Issuance:

To avoid the separation of powers concerns posed by inclusion of six members of Congress on the eleven-member John F. Kennedy Centennial Commission, the Commission should create an executive committee, composed of its five presidentially appointed members, which would be legally responsible for discharging the purely executive functions of the Commission.

The six congressional members could participate in nearly all of the Commission’s remaining activities, including in ceremonial functions.
