Public Information Collection Requirement Submitted to Office of 
Management and Budget for Review

April 18, 1994.
    The Federal Communications Commission has submitted the following 
information collection requirement to OMB for review and clearance 
under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980 (44 U.S.C. 3507).
    Copies of the submission may be purchased from the Commission's 
copy contractor, International Transcription Service, Inc., 2100 M 
Street NW., suite 140, Washington, DC 20037, (202) 857-3800. For 
further information on this submission contact Judy Boley, Federal 
Communications Commission, (202) 632-0276. Persons wishing to comment 
on this information collection should contact Timothy Fain, Office of 
Management and Budget, Room 3221 NEOB, Washington, DC 20503, (202) 395-

OMB Number: None
Title: Implementation of Sections 3(n) and 332 of the Communications 
Act, GN Docket No. 93-252, Second Report and Order
Action: New collection
Respondents: State or local governments, businesses or other for-profit 
(including small businesses)
Frequency of Response: On occasion reporting requirement
Estimated Annual Burden: 1,295 responses; 1.66 hours average burden per 
response; 2,150 hours total annual burden
Needs and Uses: This rulemaking proceeding adopts rules to implement 
Sections 3(n) and 332 of the Communications Act of 1934 (the Act) as 
amended by Section 6000(b) of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 
1993 (Budget Act). The new rules adopted: (1) Interpret the elements 
that define the terms ``commercial mobile radio service (CMRS)'' and 
``private mobile radio service (PMRS);'' (2) based on these 
definitions, determine the regulatory status of existing mobile 
services and of personal communications services (PCS); (3) address the 
degree to which those services that will be classified as CMRS will be 
subject to regulation under Title II of the Act; and (4) address the 
other issues, including interconnection rights and preemption of state 
regulatory authority over mobile service providers. The Commission's 
action furthers the congressional objectives of ensuring that similar 
services are subject to consistent regulatory classification and that 
appropriate levels of regulation be established for CMRS providers. The 
Commission's action establishes a symmetrical regulatory structure that 
will promote competition in the mobile services marketplace and will 
serve the interests of consumers while also benefiting the national 

    Federal Communications Commission.
William F. Caton,
Acting Secretary.
