This is a summary of the Commission's Erratum, FCC 20-65, published June 18, 2020 (85 FR 36786). This is the first set of corrections.

Because this change is editorial and non-substantive, we find good cause to conclude that notice and comment are unnecessary for its adoption. Because this rule change does not require notice and comment, the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601 et seq., does not apply. See id. section 601(2).

This Erratum does not contain new or modified information collection requirements subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 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, Public Law 107-198; see 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(4).

The Commission has determined, and the Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, concurs that this rule is “non-major” under the Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 804(2). The Commission will send a copy of the Order to Congress and the Government Accountability Office pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 801(a)(1)(A).

Accordingly, it is ordered that, effective on the date of publication of this Erratum in the Federal Register, 47 CFR 73.3580(e)(2) of the rules is amended, as set forth herein, pursuant to the authority contained in sections 4(i) and 303(r) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 154(i), 303(r), and in sections 553(b)(3)(B) and 553(d)(3) of the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C 553(b)(3)(B), 553(d)(3).
