FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION


Information Collections Being Reviewed by the Federal 
Communications Commission

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Notice and request for comments.

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

SUMMARY: The Federal Communications Commission (FCC), as part of its 
continuing effort to reduce paperwork burdens, invites the general 
public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment 
on the following information collection, as required by the Paperwork 
Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995. Comments are requested concerning (a) 
Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the 
proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including 
whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy 
of the Commission's burden estimate; (c) ways to enhance the quality, 
utility, and clarity of the information collected; (d) ways to minimize 
the burden of the collection of information on the respondents, 
including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of 
information technology; and (e) ways to further reduce the information 
collection burden on small business concerns with fewer than 25 
employees.
    The FCC may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information 
unless it displays a currently valid control number. No person shall be 
subject to any penalty for failing to comply with a collection of 
information subject to the PRA that does not display a valid Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) control number.

DATES: Written PRA comments should be submitted on or before April 29, 
2013. If you anticipate that you will be submitting comments, but find 
it difficult to do so within the period of time allowed by this notice,

Commission via email to PRA@fcc.gov and Cathy.Williams@fcc.gov.

responses.
    Estimated time per response: 0.017 hours--52 hours.
    Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. The

    Needs and Uses: On November 29, 1999, the Community Broadcasters 
Protection Act of 1999 (CBPA), Public Law 106-113, 113 Stat. Appendix I 
at pp. 1501A-594--1501A-598 (1999), codified at 47 U.S.C. Section 
336(f), was enacted. That legislation provided that a low power 
television (LPTV) licensee should be permitted to convert the secondary 
status of its station to the new Class A status, provided it can 
satisfy certain statutorily-established criteria. The CBPA directs that 
Class A licensees be subject to the same license terms and renewal 
standards as full-power television licenses and that Class A licensees 
be accorded primary status as television broadcasters as long as they 
continue to meet the requirements set forth in the statute for a 
qualifying low power station. The CBPA sets out certain certification 
and application procedures for LPTV licensees seeking Class A 
designation, prescribes the criteria LPTV licensees must meet to be 
eligible for Class A licenses, and outlines the interference protection 
Class A applicants must provide to analog, digital, LPTV and TV 
translator stations.
    The CBPA directs that Class A stations must comply with the 
operating requirements for full-service television broadcast stations. 
Therefore, beginning on the date of its application for a Class A 
license and thereafter, a station must be ``in compliance'' with the 
Commission's operating rules for full-service television stations, 
contained in 47 CFR part 73.
