In February 2002, the Commission received emergency approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for reporting burdens contained in a series of Orders allowing seven carriers additional time to comply with the Commission's Enhanced 911 Phase II implementation schedule subject to certain reporting requirements. The Commission opened a period for comment on these burdens at 67 FR 14714, March 27, 2002. The period for comment ends on May 28, 2002. However, the Commission has revised the information contained in the announcement of the comment period in anticipation of other carriers who might also seek a waiver and be subject to the reporting requirement. So, the Commission revised its original notice and associated burden estimates and extends the public comment period for 60 days after publication in the Federal Register.Start Signature
