Synopsis of Order

1. On June 30, 2004, the National Organization for Women and four other groups (“NOW”) jointly filed a Motion for Extension of Time. NOW seeks an extension of the deadline for filing comments and reply comments responsive to the Third Report and Order and Fourth Notice of Proposed Rule Making (“3R&O”, 69 FR 34950, June 23, 2004; “4NPRM”, 69 FR 34986, June 23, 2004), in this proceeding.

2. NOW states that the additional time is necessary to enable it to devote adequate time and resources to this proceeding. NOW states that it also needs time to permit various interested parties to work together to formulate an approach that may successfully resolve the issue in this proceeding.

3. We find that the public interest would be served by granting the requested extension of the comments and reply comments deadlines. The brief extension requested will enable NOW and other parties to prepare comprehensive comments and replies that will help the Commission in its decision-making and help resolve the complex and significant public policy issues raised in this proceeding.

4. NOW's Motion for Extension of Time is granted.

5. This action is taken pursuant to delegated authority under § 0.283 of the Commission's Rules, 47 CFR 0.283.
