SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This is a summary of the Commission's Report and Order, MB Docket No. 07-163, adopted January 27, 2010, and released January 29, 2010.

The Notice of Proposed Rule Making in this proceeding proposed the allotment of Channel 235A at Markham, Texas. As described above, Fort Bend Broadcasting proposed the upgrade of its Station KHTZ(FM), Ganado, Texas, from Channel 284C2 to Channel 235C at a new transmitter site and the modification of its license to specify operation on non-adjacent Channel 235C. The document explains that it was not necessary to compare these conflicting proposals because an alternate channel is available for allotment at Markham. Specifically, the document allots Channel 283A at Markham in lieu of Channel 235A. Because the conflict was resolved, the document also grants Fort Bend's counterproposal to upgrade Station KHTZ(FM) to Channel 235C. To accommodate this upgrade, the document substitutes Channel 284C3 for Channel 236C3 at Victoria, Texas, and modifies the license for Station KVIC(FM), Victoria, to specify operation on Channel 284C3. Finally, because Fort Bend's counterproposal involves licensed stations, the channel substitutions for Station KHTZ(FM) at Gandado, Texas, and for KVIC(FM), Victoria, Texas, will be updated in the Commission's Consolidated Data Base System [CDBS].

This document does not contain new or modified information collection requirements subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), Public Law 104-13.In addition, therefore, it does not contain any new or modified information collection burden for small business concerns with fewer than 25 employees, pursuant to the Small Business Paperwork Relief Act of 2002, Public Law 107-198, see 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(4).

The Commission will send a copy of the Report & Order in a report to be sent to Congress and the Government Accountability Office pursuant to the Congressional Review Act, see 5 U.S.C. 801(a)(1)(A).
