FCC Suspends Filing Deadlines

New deadlines to be named later

Now that the federal government has returned to 100% operation, instead of 83% operation, the FCC website is up and running, sort of.

Those fretting deadlines, notably prospective LPFMers can rest a little. The website notes that deadlines for filings are temporarily suspended until further notice.

Here’s what the FCC says:

As a result of the recent shutdown of Commission services, including access to electronic dockets on the Commission’s web site, due to a government-wide lapse in appropriations, we suspend all Commission filing deadlines that occurred during the shutdown or that will occur on or before October 21, other than Network Outage Reporting System (NORS) filing deadlines, until further notice. The Commission will soon issue further guidance on revised filing deadlines.

We recommend that parties refrain from submitting filings seeking additional relief until after they consider the further guidance.
