SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

1. On May 20, 2010, the Commission published in the Federal Register, the summary of a Report and Order and Second Report and Order, which stated that upon OMB approval, it would publish in the Federal Register a document announcing the effective date. On September 26, 2011 the OMB approved, for a period of three years, the information collection requirements contained in sections 25.202(h)(3), 25.214(d)(2), 27.14(p)(7), 27.53(a)(10), 27.72(b), 27.72(c), 27.73(a), and 27.73(b) of the Commission's rules.[1]

Footnotes

1.  The summary of the Report and Order and Second Report and Order, published August 2, 2010, did not list 47 CFR 25.202(h)(3), 47 CFR 25.214(d)(2), and 47 CFR 27.53(a)(10) among the rules requiring OMB approval. However, because 47 CFR 25.202(h)(3), 25.214(d)(2), and 27.53(a)(10) contain information collection requirements that can not be enforced without OMB approval, the Commission sought OMB clearance for these rules.
