This is a summary of the Commission's Twenty-Third Order on Reconsideration in CC Docket No. 96-45 released on July 11, 2001.

I. Introduction

1. In this document, the Commission makes a correction to section 36.605(c)(3)(ii) of its rules adopted in the Fourteenth Report and Order, 66 FR 30080, June 5, 2001. The correction concerns the calculation of safety net additive support in the years following qualification for such support and is necessary to make the rule consistent with the text of the underlying order. Specifically, this correction revises the language in section 36.605(c)(3)(ii) to make it clear that rural telephone companies receive the lesser of either: (1) the sum of capped support and the safety net additive support in each year or (2) uncapped support in each year when the cap is not triggered.

Need for Correction

As published, the final regulations contain errors which may prove to be misleading and need to be clarified.
