The Federal Communications Commission published a rule on February 6, 2013 which became effective on March 8, 2013. That document listed incorrect cross-references in the introductory text in § 25.221(b) and, due to paragraph mis-numbering, inadvertently replaced § 25.221(a)(7), which should not have been changed, with a slightly revised version of the text in § 25.221(a)(8).
