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.

Needs and Uses: On May 3, 1993, the Commission released a Report and Order and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, In the Matter of Implementation of Sections of the Cable Television Consumer Protection and Competition Act of 1992, Rate Regulation, MM Docket No. 92-266, FCC 93-177. Among other things, the Report and Order implemented Section 3(a) of the Cable Television Consumer and Protection and Competition Act of 1992 wherein a local franchise authority (LFA) must file with the Commission, a written certification when it seeks to regulate basic service cable rates. Subsequently, the Commission developed FCC Form 328 to provide a standardized, simple form for LFAs' to use when requesting certification. The data derived from FCC 328 filings is used by Commission staff to ensure that an LFA has met the criteria specified in Section 3(a) of the Cable Television Consumer Protection and Competition Act of 1992 for regulating basic service rates.Start Signature
