On January 7, 2020, we wrote about a proposal by the FCC to establish “988” as a nationwide abbreviated telephone dialing code to reach the National Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Crisis hotline.  The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking has now been published in the Federal Register, establishing the deadlines for comments and replies.  Initial Comments will be due on February 14 and Reply Comments will be due on March 16, 2020.  Some may find it rather appropriate that comments on a proposal to save lives will be due on Valentine’s Day.
