ACTION: Reopening of comment period.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This document extends the comments and reply comments due 
dates of a document published at 65 FR 33281 (May 23, 2000). The Common 
Carrier Bureau published a document soliciting comments on proposals in 
this proceeding to require resellers to obtain their own carrier 
identification codes.

DATES: Submit comments on or before June 13, 2000 and reply comments on 
or before June 20, 2000.

ADDRESSES: See 65 FR 33281 (May 23, 2000) for where and how to file

[[Page 36652]]

2000), the Common Carrier Bureau asked for supplemental filings on a 
proposal in this proceeding to require resellers to obtain their own 
carrier identification codes, establishing comment and reply comment 
dates of June 6 and June 13, 2000, respectively. See Common Carrier 
Bureau Asks Parties to Refresh Record and Seeks Additional Comment on 
Proposal to Require Resellers to Obtain Carrier Identification Codes, 
Public Notice, DA 00-1093, released May 17, 2000. On May 30, 2000, the 
Association of Communications Enterprises (ASCENT), formerly the 
Telecommunications Resellers Association, requested that the comment 
periods be extended by 30 days, to July 6 and July 13, 2000, 
respectively. ASCENT contends, among other things, that it is working 
with its members to compile data responsive to the Public Notice, but 
that the time allotted ``has unfortunately proven inadequate[.]'' 
ASCENT Request for Extension of Time at 3.
    Based on consideration of ASCENT's filing, we conclude that a one-
week extension of time is warranted. Therefore, we shall extend the 
respective comment and reply comment dates to June 13 and June 20, 
2000. This extension will provide interested parties with more than 
three weeks from the date of release of the Public Notice in which to 
prepare their supplemental filings, a period that we believe should be 
sufficient to prepare the requested information.
    For the foregoing reasons, pursuant to 47 CFR 1.46 of the 
Commission's rules, the Common Carrier Bureau hereby extends the 
comment and reply comment dates in this matter to June 13 and June 20, 
2000, respectively.

    Dated: June 5, 2000.
K. Michele Walters,
Associate Division Chief, Accounting Policy Division.
