Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION:

Dismissal.

SUMMARY:

The Commission dismisses the pending rulemaking petition filed by Paxson Communications License Company, LLC (“Paxson”), permittee of WPXD-DT, post-transition digital television channel 31, which proposes to substitute digital television channel 19 for post-transition digital television channel 31 at Ann Arbor, Michigan. Paxson's proposed channel substitution requires coordination and concurrence with the Canadian government because the proposed facility is located within the Canadian coordination zone. The Canadian government has indicated that Paxson's proposed channel substitution is not acceptable. Therefore, the Commission cannot approve Paxson's rulemaking petition.
