FCC Homeland Move Would Include EAS

FCC Chairman Kevin Martin recently announced plans to move the commission's EAS responsibilities out of the Enforcement Bureau, where EAS is regulated now, as part of a change in the status of the Office of Homeland Security.
As part of several steps Martin said would help improve communications and public safety in disaster response, the Office of Homeland Security will soon be elevated to bureau status, and EAS oversight would go with it.
Asked about those plans by RW Online, FCC officials said the timing is still under discussion.
