SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

The final regulations that are the subject of these corrections amended the Commission's rules relating to high-cost universal service support for rural carriers in response to recommendations of the Rural Task Force. Among other things, the amendments added §§ 36.602 and 36.603 to the Commission's rules and provided that, effective July 1, 2001, §§ 36.602 and 36.603 supersede § 36.601(c) of the Commission's rules. Section 36.622 of the Commission's rules previously contained a reference to § 36.601(c), and additional references to §§ 36.602 and 36.603 were inadvertently omitted in the final rules.

Need for Correction

As published, the final regulations omit references to rule sections that were added, and this omission may be misleading and needs to be corrected.
