Dual Membership of an Individual on Two Federal Advisory Committees

Headnotes: 

There are no legal constraints, including the conflict of interest laws, that would rule out an individual’s concurrent membership on two federal advisory committees.

Per diem compensation received for service on a federal advisory committee does not constitute a salary from the federal government so as to disqualify an individual receiving such compensation from membership on the President’s Nuclear Safety Oversight Committee.
