Frequency of Response: Recordkeeping requirement; On occasion reporting requirement; Third party disclosure requirement. Total Annual Burden: 950 hours. Total Annual Cost: $80,000. Privacy Impact Assessment: No impact(s). Needs and Uses: In June 2003, the Commission adopted changes to 47 CFR 73.3613 and the FCC’s attribution rules. As a result, radio stations located in Arbitron radio markets must now file agreements for the sale of advertising time (i.e., ‘‘Joint Sales Agreements’’ or ‘‘JSAs’’) that result in attribution under the Commission’s multiple ownership rules. 47 CFR 73.3613 requires licensees of television and radio broadcast stations to file with the Commission: (a) Contracts relating to ownership or control and personnel; and (b) time PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 brokerage agreements that result in arrangements being counted under the Commission’s multiple ownership rules. Television stations also must file network affiliation agreements. This section also requires certain contracts to be retained at the station and made available for inspection by the Commission upon request. On June 24, 2004, the Court issued an Opinion and Judgment (‘‘Remand Order’’) in which it upheld certain aspects of the new ownership rules, including the attribution of JSAs among radio stations, while requiring further explanation for certain other aspects of the new rules. The Court stated that its prior stay of the new rules would remain in effect pending the outcome of the remand proceeding. The Commission has not yet responded to the Remand Order, but in the meantime the Commission filed a petition for rehearing requesting that the Court lift the stay partially—i.e., with respect to the radio ownership and JSA attribution rules which the Court’s Remand Order upheld. On September 3, 2004, the Court issued an Order (‘‘Rehearing Order’’) which partially granted the Commission’s petition for rehearing, thus lifting the stay of the revised radio ownership and JSA attribution rules. As a result of the Rehearing Order, the Commission’s revised radio ownership and JSA attribution rules took effect on September 3, 2004. Implementation of the new radio ownership and JSA attribution rules, as required by the Rehearing Order, triggers the requirement for certain licensees to begin filing JSAs.

on or before April 25, 2005. If you anticipate that you will be 
submitting comments, but find it difficult to do so within the period 
of time allowed by this notice, you should advise the contact listed 
below as soon as possible.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Control Number: 3060-0185.
    Title: Section 73.3613, Filing of Contracts.
    Form Number: Not applicable.
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    Respondents: Business or other for-profit entities; Not-for-profit 
institutions.
    Number of Respondents: 2,300.
    Estimated Time per Response: 0.25 to 0.5 hours.
    Frequency of Response: Recordkeeping requirement; On occasion 
reporting requirement; Third party disclosure requirement.
    Total Annual Burden: 950 hours.
    Total Annual Cost: $80,000.
    Privacy Impact Assessment: No impact(s).
    Needs and Uses: In June 2003, the Commission adopted changes to 47 
CFR 73.3613 and the FCC's attribution rules. As a result, radio 
stations located in Arbitron radio markets must now file agreements for 
the sale of advertising time (i.e., ``Joint Sales Agreements'' or 
``JSAs'') that result in attribution under the Commission's multiple 
ownership rules. 47 CFR 73.3613 requires licensees of television and 
radio broadcast stations to file with the Commission: (a) Contracts 
relating to ownership or control and personnel; and (b) time brokerage 
agreements that result in arrangements being counted under the 
Commission's multiple ownership rules. Television stations also must 
file network affiliation agreements. This section also requires certain 
contracts to be retained at the station and made available for 
inspection by the Commission upon request.
    On June 24, 2004, the Court issued an Opinion and Judgment 
(``Remand Order'') in which it upheld certain aspects of the new 
ownership rules, including the attribution of JSAs among radio 
stations, while requiring further explanation for certain other aspects 
of the new rules. The Court stated that its prior stay of the new rules 
would remain in effect pending the outcome of the remand proceeding. 
The Commission has not yet responded to the Remand Order, but in the 
meantime the Commission filed a petition for rehearing requesting that 
the Court lift the stay partially--i.e., with respect to the radio 
ownership and JSA attribution rules which the Court's Remand Order 
upheld. On September 3, 2004, the Court issued an Order (``Rehearing 
Order'') which partially granted the Commission's petition for 
rehearing, thus lifting the stay of the revised radio ownership and JSA 
attribution rules. As a result of the Rehearing Order, the Commission's 
revised radio ownership and JSA attribution rules took effect on 
September 3, 2004. Implementation of the new radio ownership and JSA 
attribution rules, as required by the Rehearing Order, triggers the 
requirement for certain licensees to begin filing JSAs.
