In this document the Commission requests comment on a petition filed by Tejas Broadcasting Ltd., LLP (“Petitioner”), licensee of FM Station KMJR, Channel 252C2, Odem, Texas. Petitioner proposes to amend the FM Table of Allotments by substituting Channel 291A for vacant Channel 252A, at Matagorda. The proposal is part of a contingently filed “hybrid” application and rule making petition. Channel 291A can be allotted at Matagorda, Texas, in compliance with the Commission's minimum distance separation requirements, at city reference coordinates of 28-41-25 NL and 95-58-02 WL, without site restriction. Concurrence by the Government of Mexico is required because Matagorda, Texas, is located within 320 kilometers (199 miles) of the U.S.-Mexican border. See Supplementary Information infra.

This document does not contain proposed information collection requirements subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Public Law 104-13.

The Provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 do not apply to this proceeding. Members of the public should note that from the time a Notice of Proposed Rule Making is issued until the matter is no longer subject to Commission consideration or court review, all ex parte contacts are prohibited in Commission proceedings, such as this one, which involve channel allotments. See 47 CFR 1.1204(b) for rules governing permissible ex parte contacts.
