Not as momentous as the Julian-Gregorian shift, but changes you might want to note nonetheless

A couple of updates on comment deadlines that have changed since our last reports on the underlying proceeding:

Parental Empowerment – Back in November the FCC set comment dates in the “parental empowerment” inquiry. Those dates have since been extended. Comments are now due on February 24, and replies on March 26.

National EAS Test – And a couple of weeks ago we noted the issuance of an NPRM in which the Commission is proposing the establishment of an annual, nation-wide EAS test. The initial comment deadlines in that proceeding were announced on January 29: comments are due March 1, replies March 30.
