Another broadcast-free FCC agenda


Once again, the FCC Open Meeting agenda is absolutely free of anything from the Media Bureau. There appears to be nothing even touching on broadcasting in the July 15th tentative agenda.

See for yourself:

· Rural Health Care Reform NPRM: A Notice of Proposed Rulemaking initiating reforms to the Universal Service Rural Health Care Fund to expand the reach and use of broadband connectivity by health care providers throughout the nation.

· Spectrum Flexibility NPRM and NOI: A Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and Notice of Inquiry seeking comment on ways to encourage investment in terrestrial broadband services within spectrum allocated to mobile satellite services, while maintaining robust mobile satellite capability.

· Electronic Tariff Filing NPRM: A Notice of Proposed Rulemaking seeking comment on streamlining the tariff filing and formatting process by transitioning from paper to electronic filing to reduce industry burden and promote an open, transparent, and efficient flow of information.
