FCC Winds Down

Visitors to the FCC’s website will now see a federal government “shutdown” page.

The information includes what we’ve reported and more details.

Essentially, the agency is limited to performing duties that are “immediately necessary” to protect lives or property. The FCC’s “Network Outage Reporting System” will remain available.

The commission’s online systems, including its online filing database, will not be available “until further notice.”

We just paid annual regulatory fees two weeks ago. Those fees, plus the fees we file with applications, completely fund the FCC's operations. So they take our money, send everyone home, and tell us to get lost. They even shut down tools like application search - that's just spiteful. Contrast this with the Patent and Trademark Office. It remains open running off of the fees it's collected.
