Agenda Set For Clyburn’s First Public Meeting

State of Incentive Auctions, Universal Service Fund Reform on Tap 6/06/2013 1:23 PM Eastern

 

The FCC has released the agenda for the first public meeting under acting chairwoman Mignon Clyburn and it includes an update on the broadcast incentive auction, improving broadband data collection.
 
That meeting is scheduled for Thursday, June 27.
 
Also on the agenda is an item to improve broadband data collection, to increase the amount of flexible use spectrum, protecting proprietary network information on mobile devices, and the state of Universal Service Fund reform.
 
Clyburn could be in her post until the end of the year, in which case she would almost certainly have to act on the proposed incentive auction band plan, which has drawn criticism from broadcasters and some major wireless companies.
