Two More Rules Face FCC’s Weed Whacker

At its October meeting, the FCC proposed to clear away further regulatory underbrush by eliminating, or drastically modifying, two rules.

Second is the requirement that licensees filing certain applications publish and/or broadcast local public notice of each filing.
