The information is also used to determine whether the public interest, convenience, and necessity are being served as required by 47 U.S.C. 309. The Commission staff also uses this information to ensure that applicants and licensee comply with ownership and transfer restrictions imposed by 47 U.S.C. 310. The Appendix attached to the OMB submission lists the rules in Part 101 that impose reporting, recordkeeping and third party disclosure requirements. The Commission revised this information collection to remove Part 101 rule sections that have no PRA implications. The total annual burden hours and costs have been modified accordingly.
