FCC Releases March Open Meeting Tentative Agenda

On February 22, 2024, the FCC released the Tentative Agenda for the March Open Meeting, scheduled for Thursday, March 14, 2024 at 10:30 AM.  The following items are tentatively scheduled for Commission consideration:

  1. Cybersecurity Labeling for Smart Products – The Commission will consider a Report and Order to create a voluntary cybersecurity labeling program for wireless consumer Internet of Things (IoT) products, which would help consumers make informed purchasing decisions, differentiate trustworthy products in the marketplace, and create incentives for manufacturers to meet higher cybersecurity standards. (PS Docket No. 23-239) (FACT SHEET)
  2. Re-Defining ‘High-Speed’ Internet to Match Market Realities – The Commission will consider the draft 2024 Section 706 Report, which, if adopted, would fulfill the Commission’s statutory responsibility under section 706 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 and raise the fixed speed benchmark for advanced telecommunications capability to 100/20 Mbps. (GN Docket No. 22-270) (FACT SHEET)
  3. Single Network Future: Supplemental Coverage from Space – The Commission will consider a Report and Order and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that would advance the Commission’s vision for a single network future in which satellite and terrestrial networks work seamlessly together to provide coverage for consumer handsets that neither network can achieve on its own. (GN Docket No. 23-65; IB Docket No. 22-271) (FACT SHEET)
  4. ‘All-In’ Cable and Satellite TV Pricing  – The Commission will consider a Report and Order to require cable and satellite TV providers to specify the “all-in” price for video programming services in promotional materials and on subscribers’ bills in order to allow consumers to make informed choices. (MB Docket No. 23-203) (FACT SHEET)
  5. ‘Missing and Endangered Persons’ Emergency Alert Code – The Commission will consider a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that would propose to facilitate the more efficient and widespread dissemination of alerts and coordinated responses to incidents involving missing and endangered persons, an issue that is particularly prevalent in Tribal communities. (PS Docket Nos. 15-91, 15-94) (FACT SHEET)

The Chairwoman also released a blog post on the agenda.
