The notice of this meeting was first published in the Federal Register on November 21, 2013, only 14 days in advance of the meeting. While the publication did not meet the 15-day requirement for advance publication, exceptional circumstances warrant proceeding with the December 4, 2013, CSRIC meeting. CSRIC members were informed of the December 4th meeting at the September 12, 2013, public meeting of the Council, and have been informed informally of the December meeting date on more than one occasion since then. A significant number of Council members have made business and travel plans in accordance with this schedule, and there is no date within one month of the planned date that will accommodate Council members' schedules. Delaying the meeting will also cause undue financial burdens on many of the members who have made travel arrangements.

In addition, it is not possible at this time to schedule a half-day meeting in the FCC's Commission Meeting Room for any date within one month of December 4, 2013. Further, recognizing the one-day delay in Federal Register publication, the agency issued a Public Notice of this meeting on November 20, 2013, to mitigate the late Federal Register publication and as an additional way of advising the public of this meeting and their right to attend. As the December 2013 meeting date was announced at the September 2013 public meeting of the Council, the meeting has now been broadly announced to the public more than once.
