Organizational Note

President Lyndon B. Johnson established the Export Expansion Advisory Committee by Executive Order 114420 on July 31, 1968. The Advisory Committee was an interagency Committee of the Department of Commerce and was terminated in 1972.

The Committee advised the Department of Commerce on views of business as to department needs in the field of export related taxation. The Committee monitored the results, assessed the effectiveness of DISC (Domestic International Sales Corporations), and evaluated some of the proposed alternative methods of taxation and the impact on exports. The Committee also made proposals for new tax legislation by which exporting might be stimulated.

The Committee was composed of eighteen members from the business community.
