On May 12, 2020, the Commission adopted Amendment of Section 73.3580 of the Commission’s Rules Regarding Public Notice of the Filing of Applications; Modernization of Media Regulation Initiative; Revision of the Public Notice Requirements of Section 73.3580, Second Report and Order, MB Docket Nos. 17-254, 17-105, & 05-6, FCC 20-65 (rel. May 13, 2020). The Commission adopted new, streamlined procedures for stations to provide public notice of the filing of certain applications. Stations, including stations filing FCC Form 308, that were previously required to post public notice in a local newspaper, must now post notice online, either on the station website or a website affiliated with the station, its licensee, or its parent entity, or else must post notice on a publicly accessible, locally targeted website, for 30 continuous days following acceptance of the application for filing. This submission is being made to OMB for approval of the modified third-party disclosure requirements for this Information Collection, as adopted in the 2020 Public Notice Second Report and Order. The changes pertaining to this Information Collection and to 47 CFR § 73.3580 adopted in the 2020 Public Notice Second Report and Order, which are listed below, do not necessitate changes to FCC Form 308, nor do they affect the substance, burden hours, or costs of completing the forms. The rule changes do, however, reduce burdens and costs associated with filing the application, as set forth below. Please see the non-substantive change request justification for the reason behind this change request submission being made to the Office of Management and Budget for review and approval.

There are program changes/decreases of -22 to the annual number of responses, -33 to the annual number of burden hours and of -$7,809 to the annual cost, which are due in part to the revised public notice requirements contained in FCC 20-65, and in part to the increased filing fee for FCC Form 308.
