On March 27, the FCC released a First Report and Order, Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and Notice of Inquiry (ET Docket Nos. 13-84 and 03-137). Publication in the June 4, 2013 Federal Register (http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-06-04/pdf/2013-12713.pdf) started the clock on a 90-day period for comments, the deadline for which is September 3. There is an additional 60-day period for reply comments, i.e. until November 1. The unusually long period for comments reflects the complexity of the proceeding and underscores the Commission’s desire for specific information on the costs and benefits related to the RF exposure issue...."
