The FCC today released a Public Notice granting the request of several broadcast organizations for an extension of time to respond to the extensive proposals for re-regulating the broadcast industry contained in the FCC’s Localism Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. We wrote about those proposals, here. Comments, which were to be filed next week, have now been extended, with a new due date of April 28. Reply comments in the proceeding are now due on June 11. Broadcasters should seriously consider filing comments in this proceeding (see our post here explaining how to file such comments), which could substantially affect the way that they do business, dramatically increasing the paperwork and regulatory burdens that they face.
