Proposed rule, correction.


This document corrects errors in the supplementary information section of a Federal Register document regarding the Commission taking major steps to modernize the E-rate program (more formally known as the schools and libraries universal service support mechanism). The Commission sought further comment on meeting the future funding needs of the E-rate program in light of the goals it adopted for the program in an accompanying Report and Order. The Commission acknowledges that modernizing a program of this size and scope cannot be accomplished at once and so it will continue to seek public input and additional ideas to bring 21st Century broadband to libraries and schools throughout the country. The document was published in the Federal Register on August 19, 2014.


The proposed rule published August 19, 2014 (79 FR 49036) is corrected as of November 18, 2014.
