ARLB017 FCC Seeks Comments on Terminating Certain Docketed
Proceedings

In a Public Notice (CG Docket No 11-99) released on June 3, the
FCC's Consumer & Governmental Affairs Bureau (CGB) is seeking
comments on whether or not it should terminate approximately 800
docketed proceedings. There are numerous proceedings pertaining to
Amateur Radio on the list. These proceedings -- some going back to
1991 -- include dockets where no further action is required or
contemplated, as well as those in which no pleadings or other
documents have been filed since December 31, 2004.

The record in a terminated docket will remain a part of the FCC's
official records; the various pleadings, orders and other documents
in that docket will continue to be accessible to the public,
post-termination.

With this Public Notice, the CGB is seeking comment from interested
parties on the possible termination of those proceedings. Comments
will be accepted within 30 days after the Public Notice is published
in the Federal Register; reply comments must be filed within 45 days
after publication in the Federal Register. As of June 7, a
publication date has not been set.

Instructions on how to file comments are listed beginning on page 2
of the Public Notice.  The Public Notice can be found in PDF format
