There is another National Space Council meeting this week. Of note is that one of the FH landed boosters (pictured below) will be on display for the meeting. Also of note is that the Paz launch will have happened that morning. I expect that SpaceX will be a big focus of this meeting. The timing for the meeting has not been posted that I could find.

Here's a website that goes over the intinerary:

The White House National Space Council, chaired by Vice President Mike Pence, will conduct its second public meeting on February 21, 2018 at Kennedy Space Center, FL. Details are TBD, but it will follow the same format at the first meeting in October 2017, open to the public, and webcast. The topic will be regulatory reform.

I suppose having a scale model of SLS/Orion on the floor and a moon buggy on the table is appropriate enough for this meeting.... Just hope Trump doesn't get wind of that glass of water in front of Pence.
