This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

Final rule; announcement of effective date.
This document announces the effective date of the rules adopted in the Tribal Order amending the Commission's universal service rules to provide additional, targeted support under the Commission's low-income programs to create financial incentives for eligible telecommunications carriers to serve, and deploy telecommunications facilities in, areas that previously may have been regarded as high risk and unprofitable. The document was published in the Federal Register on August 4, 2000. Some of the rules contained information collection requirements.
The amendments to 47 CFR 54.401(d), 54.403(a)(2), 54.403(a)(3), 54.403(a)(4)(ii), 54.405(b), 54.409(c), 54.411(d), and 54.415(c) published at 65 FR 47883 (August 4, 2000) are effective September 5, 2000.Start Further Info

On June 30, 2000, the Commission adopted in the Tribal Order, 65 FR 47883 (August 4, 2000), measures to promote telecommunications subscribership and infrastructure deployment within American Indian and Alaska Native tribal communities; to establish a framework for the resolution of eligible telecommunications carrier designation requests under section 214(e)(6) of the Telecom Act; and to apply the framework to pending petitions for designation as eligible telecommunications carriers. A summary was published in the Federal Register. See 65 FR 47883, August 4, 2000. Some of the rules contained information collection requirements. We stated that the “rules contain information collection requirements that have not been approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The Commission will publish a document in the Federal Register announcing the effective date of these sections.” The information collections were approved by OMB on July 31, 2000. See OMB Nos. 3060-0774 and 3060-0810. This publication satisfies our statement that the Commission would publish a document announcing the effective date of the rules. It also amends the Commission's universal service rules to provide additional, targeted support under the Commission's low-income programs to create financial incentives for eligible telecommunications carriers to serve, and deploy telecommunications facilities in, areas that previously may have been regarded as high risk and unprofitable.Start List of Subjects
