FCC Releases February Open Meeting Tentative Agenda

On January 25, 2024, the FCC released the Tentative Agenda for the February Open Meeting, scheduled for Thursday, February 15, 2024 at 10:30 AM.  The Commission is tentatively scheduled to consider the following items:

  1. Increasing the Accessibility of the Emergency Alert System – The Commission will consider a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking intended to simplify the process for alert originators to send multilingual emergency alerts over television and radio. (PS Docket No. 15-94) (FACT SHEET)
  2. Empowering Consumers to Block Robocalls and Robotexts – The Commission will consider a Report and Order and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to strengthen consumers’ ability to revoke consent so that it is simple and easy, codify previously adopted protections that make it simpler for consumers to revoke consent, and require that callers and texters implement requests in a timely manner. The item also proposes and seeks comment on clarifying that the TCPA applies to robocalls and robotexts from wireless providers to their own subscribers and for the first time proposes to give consumers the ability to revoke consent and thereby stop these communications. (CG Docket No. 02-278) (FACT SHEET)
  3. Expanding Opportunities for Wireless Microphone Use – The Commission will consider a Report and Order to revise the Part 15 and 74 technical rules to permit recently developed, and more efficient, wireless microphone technology. (RM-11821; ET Docket No. 21-115) (FACT SHEET)
  4. Facilitating Capabilities for In-Space Servicing, Assembly, and Manufacturing – The Commission will consider a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that would propose a framework for licensing space stations engaged in in-space servicing, assembly, and manufacturing—or “ISAM”—operations, which would facilitate the development of these novel space activities that support sustained economic activity in space and would advance opportunities for innovation in the new space age. (IB Docket Nos. 22-271; 22-272) (FACT SHEET)
  5. Restricted Adjudicatory Matter – The Commission will consider a restricted adjudicatory matter from the Media Bureau.
  6. Enforcement Bureau Action – The Commission will consider an enforcement action.

The Chairwoman also released a blog post on the agenda.
