SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This is a summary of the Order adopted by the Commission's Managing Director, DA 18-976, adopted on September 21, 2018, and released on September 21, 2018. The full text of this document is available for public inspection during regular business hours in the FCC Reference Center, Room CY-A257, 445 12th Street SW, Washington, DC 20554, or at https://www.fcc.gov/​edocs.

1. In this Order, the Managing Director makes non-substantive revisions to authority citations in title 47 of the Code of Federal Regulations. These authority citations are required by the rules of the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR), and their format is prescribed by the Document Drafting Handbook of the Office of the Federal Register. Certain of the authority citations currently in the Commission's rules may not conform to those specifications.

2. The changes effected by this Order are intended only to bring the authority citations into conformance with the ACFR regulations and Document Drafting Handbook of the Office of the Federal Register. None of these changes should be construed to change the substantive requirements of the affected rules or the sources of Commission authority for those requirements.

3. Regulatory Flexibility Act. Because we adopt this Order without notice and comment, the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) does not apply.

4. Paperwork Reduction Act. The Order does not contain new or modified information collection requirements subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), Public Law 104-13. In addition, therefore, it does not contain any new or modified “information collection burden for small business concerns with fewer than 25 employees,” pursuant to the Small Business Paperwork Relief Act of 2002.

5. Congressional Review Act. Because this Order affects only rules of agency organization, procedure, or practice and does not substantially affect the rights or obligations of non-agency parties, it is not subject to the Congressional Review Act.

6. Petitions for reconsideration pursuant to 47 CFR 1.429 or applications for review pursuant to 47 CFR 1.115 of this Order may be filed within thirty days of publication of a summary of this Order in the Federal Register. Should no petitions for reconsideration or applications for review be timely filed, this proceeding shall be terminated and its docket closed.

7. Accordingly, it is ordered that, pursuant to the authority contained in sections 4(i), 4(j), and 5 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 154(i), 154(j), 155, and § 0.231(b) of the rules of the Federal Communications Commission, 47 CFR 0.231(b), this Order is adopted, effective immediately upon publication in the Federal Register.

8. It is further ordered that title 47 of the Code of Federal Regulations is amended as set forth in the regulatory text hereto.
