By Public Notice dated September 17, 2001, we initiated a cost review proceeding to determine the appropriate residential and single-line business subscriber line charge (SLC) caps for price cap local exchange carriers (LECs). (66 FR 49022 September 25, 2001). On October 5, 2001, we issued a Public Notice granting several price cap LECs' request for a limited extension of time in which to file their cost submissions. (66 FR 52407 October 15, 2001). The National Association of State Utility Consumer Advocates (NASUCA) has requested an extension of time for filing comments in response to the cost submissions. We agree that an extension is warranted to allow parties with limited resources sufficient time to review and analyze large and complex cost submissions. Comments will be due no later than January 24, 2002, and reply comments will be due no later than February 14, 2002. When filing cost information and comments, parties should reference CC Docket Nos. 96-262 and 94-1.

This proceeding shall be treated as a “permit-but-disclose” proceeding in accordance with the Commission's ex parte rules. See 47 CFR 1.1200 and 1.1206. Persons making oral ex parte presentations are reminded that memoranda summarizing the presentations must contain summaries of the substance of the presentations and not merely a listing of the subjects discussed.

Other Start Printed Page 56559rules pertaining to oral and written ex parte presentations in permit-but-disclose proceedings are set forth in section 1.1206(b) of the Commission's rules, 47 CFR 1.1206(b).
