In January, the FCC released the Third Report and Order (3rd R&O) in the Rural Radio proceeding. That decision created a short-cut available to Native American Tribes seeking new commercial FM stations primarily serving Tribal Lands.

The revised versions of Section 73.3573 and Form 301 adopted in the 3rd R&O have received OMB’s seal of Paperwork Reduction Act approval.  The revised rule and related form will become effective on July 2, 2012.
