The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced Tuesday in the Federal Register that its Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC) will hold a teleconference meeting on December 4, 2009, in order to review findings and recommendations made by its Sustainability and Efficiency Task Force. All members of the public are welcome to join by dialing into the teleconference, which will take place from 3PM to 4PM EST.

The HSAC advises DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano on homeland security matters.
