EWA Supports Waiving Certain Regulatory Fees

In its 2017 Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) regarding regulatory fees, the FCC has proposed raising the de minimis exemption from $500 to $1,000. It also asks if the de minimis standard should be applied to “multi-year” wireless licenses, which include shared and exclusive-use Private Land Mobile Radio Service (PLMRS) licenses, that are renewed at different times throughout the year. Additionally, and consistent with discussions EWA had with the FCC last year, it is asking whether it should eliminate certain regulatory fee categories entirely, such as Commercial Mobile Radio Service (CMRS) Messaging (paging), the category applicable to most Part 90 and Part 22 CMRS systems. Comments are due on June 22 and Reply Comments on July 7. (MD 17-134; FCC 17-62)
