OMB concurs with
the FCC's revisions of this collection that modified the
requirements of 47 CFR 25.114. Specifically, OMB approves this
collection including the requirements of 47 CFR 25.114 except that
technical data will not be required from foreign satellites with
which the U.S. has completed the coordination process and financial
data will not be required in cases where the foreign satellite is
already in-orbit and operating. OMB commends the FCC for its quick
action on this item.
