This is a summary of the Commission's Letter, DA 12-1976, released December 7, 2012. Both MPLC and CCT filed separately timely Petitions for Reconsideration, and amendments to their applications, File Nos. BNPED-20100224ABX and BNPED-20100226AGO, respectively, in response to the staff's July 27, 2012 decision. See 77 FR 50053, published August 20, 2012. The full text of this Commission decision is available for inspection and copying during normal business hours in the Commission's Reference Center 445 Twelfth Street, SW., Washington, DC 20554. The complete text of this decision may also be purchased from the Commission's duplicating contractor, Best Copy and Printing, Inc., 445 12th Street SW., Room CY-B402, Washington, DC 20054, telephone 1-800-378-3160 or The Commission will send a copy of the Letter in a report to be sent to Congress and the General Accounting Office pursuant to the Congressional Review Act, see 5 U.S.C. 801(a)(1)(A).

Although the Bureau now finds that the MPLC and CCT Applications both satisfy the reservation standard, MPLC and CCT remain tied with five points each. Thus, the Bureau refers the MPLC and CCT Applications to the Commission to administer the tie-breaker mechanisms and to determine the tentative selectee(s) for NCE Reserved Allotment Group No. 8.
