Subject of Closed Meeting:  Staff will brief the Commission on the status of a compliance enforcement program.

Record of Commission’s Vote: On March 1, 2019, the Commission voted unanimously (5-0) to close the meeting and determined that Agency business requires calling the meeting without seven calendar days advance public notice. 

Commission’s Explanation of Closing: This meeting may be properly closed under Exemptions 7 and 9; 16 CFR § 1013.4(b)(7) and (9).  This meeting will involve discussion of the following: (1) investigatory records to the extent that the production of such records or information would (a) interfere with enforcement proceedings and (b) disclose investigative techniques and procedures (exemption 7); and (2) information the premature disclosure of which is likely to frustrate implementation of a proposed agency action (exemption 9).  In voting to close the meeting, the Commission has determined that, on balance, taking into account the relative advantages and disadvantages to the public of conducting the meeting in open or closed session, the public interest would best be served by closing the meeting based on the exemptions identified.  The General Counsel has certified that the meeting may be properly closed to the public under the referenced exemptions.

Purpose of this Notice:  This document gives notice that the Commission has decided to close the meeting described above.  This notice is given pursuant to the Commission’s rules issued under the Government in the Sunshine Act (16 C.F.R. § 1013.4(c)(4)).
