Updated February 7, 2019:
The FCC will be considering the adoption of MB Docket 19-3 at the FCC Open Meeting, that has been rescheduled for February 14, 2019. The meeting was rescheduled because of the potential of another government shutdown that cound take place as soon as Saturday, February 16. On Friday, February 1, REC's Michelle Bradley met over the phone with FCC Audio Division chief Albert Shuldiner and other staff regarding concerns over a proposal in the draft NPRM that would, in the opinion of REC, further endorse and encourage gamesmanship by permitting collusion in the LPFM time-share negotiation process. REC has proposed an alternate Viable Time Sharing plan that would add fairness to the process and reduce the chances of pre-planned outcomes. REC has asked that the Media Bureau use their editorial privilege to refer to the ex parte presentation made by REC that details the plan.
Once the NPRM is adopted by the full Commission and it is published in the Federal Register, the Commission will announce deadline dates for comments and reply comments.
