OMB notes that the FCC did not take the requested steps to allow electronic filing of the FCC 431 as stipulated in the Terms of Clearance issued when the item was last approved in 1995. FCC's response, contained in the Justification statement that accompanied this submission reflects inadequate progress on making this happen. Therefore, OMB will approve this collection for one year and fully expects the FCC to adopt an electronic filing mechanism which hopefully include the consolidated filings mentioned in the Justification statement.
