At today's FCC open meeting, the Commission adopted a Notice of Proposed Rule Making ("NPRM") to begin the process of implementing the Local Community Radio Act of 2010, passed by Congress last year, and to chart a path to the licensing of new LPFM stations. (See our earlier posting here regarding the Local Community Radio Act of 2010.) While today's item does not attempt to address all of the issues raised by the Act, it starts the implementation process and seeks to develop processing policies for FM translator applications, resume the licensing of pending translator applications, and establish a framework for licensing new LPFM stations.
