Item dropped from FCC meeting


No, not THAT item, unfortunately. The white space agenda item that so many in the broadcast, sports, theater and religious arena would like to see delayed is still safely ensconced on the schedule as planned, at least as of this writing. However, a touchy universal service item has gone bye-bye. In the case of the universal service item, all four commissioners who are not a chairman and have no agenda-setting powers came together to issue a statement expressing their disappointment that the item was removed.

RBR/TVBR observation: At least the absence of the deleted item removes one potential reason for a meeting delay. And maybe, just maybe, white spaces will join it on the postponed heap.
