FCC Getting Back in Gear

The FCC is trying to get up to speed now that the federal government is fully open.

FCC Acting Chairwoman Mignon Clyburn said the agency’s main priority is to resume normal operations as soon as possible, noting the commission has already taken steps to remedy disruptions caused by the shutdown and “will be issuing further guidance very soon.”

She asked for patience as the agency works through this “extraordinary situation.”        

One example of that work is the FCC’s monthly meeting for this month, which has been rescheduled to the 28th. No broadcast items are on the agenda.

In a radio decision just out Thursday, the commission said 14 radio stations that were required to submit their license renewal applications by June 1 didn’t do so. The agency says those licenses expired on Oct. 1.
