The FCC wants to make it easy for consumers, the people who don't have telecom attorneys, to tell the agency what they think about various issues. So, the agency has launched ECFS Express, a simplified version of its Electronic Comment Filing System.
ECFS Express focuses on topics rather than docket numbers, and requires minimal input by consumers seeking to participate in the commission's public rulemaking process. To use from the FCC's Website, people who wish to comment simply click on a topic, fill in their personal information, write their comments and hit "send." To access ECFS Express, users just click on the "File Comments" logo found on the front page of the FCC's Web site: www.fcc.gov.
ECFS Express will highlight the proceedings most likely to generate consumer interest. The topics will change periodically as new issues emerge. The original version of the Electronic Comment Filing System, which includes all docketed commission proceedings, will still be available.
