Summary of Order

    On February 20, 2014, the Commission adopted a Third Further Notice 
of Proposed Rulemaking (Third FNPRM) in this docket, seeking comment on 
proposed wireless E911 location accuracy requirements. The Third 
Further NPRM set deadlines for filing comments and reply comments of 
May 12, 2014 and June 11, 2014, respectively.
    On May 29, 2014, CTIA--The Wireless Association (CTIA) filed a 
request to extend the reply comment deadline an additional 30 days, 
until July 14, 2014. CTIA states that an extension of time is warranted 
due to the complex issues presented by the Third NPRM and the large 
number of initial comments filed in this docket. The National Emergency 
Number Association, Competitive Carrier Association, and Texas 911 
Entities filed letters in support of CTIA's request.
    We grant the request for an extension of time. As set forth in 
Section 1.46 of the Commission's rules, the Commission's policy is that 
extensions of time for filing comments in rulemaking proceedings shall 
not be routinely granted. In this case, however, an extension of the 
reply comment period is warranted for the reasons identified by CTIA. 
Specifically, we find that extension of the reply comment deadline to 
July 14, 2014 is warranted to provide commenters with sufficient time 
to prepare reply comments that fully respond to the complex technical, 
economic, and policy issues raised in the Third FNPRM and comments 
filed thereafter.
    Accordingly, it is ordered that, pursuant to Section 4(i) of the 
Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 154(i), and Sections 
0.191, 0.392, and 1.46 of the Commission's rules, 47 CFR 0.191, 0.392, 
and 1.46, the Motion for Extension of Time filed by CTIA is granted, 
and the deadline to file reply comments in this proceeding is extended 
to July 14, 2014.

Federal Communications Commission.
David G. Simpson,
Chief, Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau.
