This information collection is being submitted because, in the Second Report and Order in PS Docket Nos. 15-91 and 15-94, FCC 18-4, the Commission adopts rules that require Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) providers to submit information subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). Specifically, the Commission adopts rules that: (1) obligate commercial mobile service (CMS) providers to submit written election of intent to participate in WEA, consistent with new definitions of 'in whole' or 'in part' participation; and (2) require CMS providers to notify consumers about the availability and benefits of enhanced geo-targeting via URL or a sales representative at the point of sale. Additionally, this information collection is being submitted because the Commission plans to create a new database to voluntarily collect election information, area served by participating CMS providers, and which phones will transmit WEAs.
