The Commission has released the following Agenda for the August Open Meeting, scheduled for Thursday, August 4, 2016:

  • Implementation of the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010:  The Commission will consider a Report and Order that would convert the National Deaf Blind Equipment Distribution program from a pilot to a permanent program.
  • Improvements to Benchmarks and Related Requirements Governing Hearing Aid-Compatible Mobile Handsets:  The Commission will consider a Report and Order that would implement changes to the scope of the wireless hearing aid compatibility rules.
  • Rates for the Interstate Inmate Calling Services:  The Commission will consider an Order on Reconsideration, responding to a petition filed by Michael S. Hamden, that would ensure that the rates for Inmate Calling Services (ICS) are just, reasonable, and fair and explicitly account for facilities’ ICS-related costs.

The Commission will also consider Media and General Counsel actions as a consent agenda that will not be presented individually.

The meeting is scheduled to begin at 10:30 am, and can be streamed live at www.fcc.gov/live.
