EAS Comments Deadline Set

Your thoughts are due to the FCC by March 1

The Federal Communications Commission would like to have the public submit their comments in March for latest EAS rulemaking.

The FCC, along with other federal agencies responsible for EAS — the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the National Weather Service — has begun putting the groundwork in place for a yearly national EAS test. The commission has proposed requiring all EAS participants to take part in national testing and then supplying results to the commission.

That’s the gist of its Second Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that it released Jan. 12, the item on which the commission seeks public comment. The agency had set filing comment deadlines of 30 and 60 days after the EAS item was published in the Federal Register, but now has set specific comment deadlines.

Comments to EB Docket 04-296 are due March 1 and replies by March 30.
