You already know (because we told you last week) that the Commission has received eight petitions for reconsideration of various aspects of its new rules establishing the Citizens Broadband Radio Service. Now, thanks to a notice in the Federal Register, we know when comments (and replies to those comments) about any or all of those petitions are due. If you’re inclined to comment on any (or all) of the petitions, you’ve got until October 19, 2015, to let the FCC know what’s on your mind. Because the FCC’s original notice said that replies to any comments are due “within 10 days after the time for filing [comments] has expired”, we here in the CommLawBlog bunker calculate that replies should be due by October 29, 2015. Careful readers of the Federal Register notice, however, will observe that, according to that Official Government Publication, replies are due by October 13, 2015 – a notion which raises considerable conceptual problems unless you happen to (a) be Pope Gregory XIII or (b) have a time machine that works better than ours. We’ll let you know if and when this gets straightened out.
