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.

The Wireless Telecommunications Bureau and the Mass Media Bureau (collectively, the “Bureaus”) announce the postponement of Auction No. 37 for vacant non-reserved band FM allotments, which was previously scheduled to begin on December 5, 2001.
On July 3, 2001, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in National Public Radio, Inc. et al., v. FCC, Nos. 00-1246, 00-1255 (decided July 3, 2001) (“NPR”) vacated the portion of the Commission's Noncommercial Report and Order, 65 FR 36375 (June 8, 2000), that required noncommercial educational (“NCE”) entities that applied for authorizations in the non-reserved spectrum to participate in auctions with mutually exclusive commercial applicants. Each of the vacant non-reserved FM band allotments included in Auction No. 37 is potentially impacted by NPR. The Bureaus announce that they will postpone Auction No. 37 while the Commission formulates its response to the NPR decision. Therefore, the previously announced filing window for FCC Form 175 submissions is cancelled, and Auction No. 37 FCC Form 175 applications will not be accepted as previously scheduled. Further information, including a revised FM Auction No. 37 schedule, will be announced in forthcoming Commission notices.Start Signature
