Download as PDF pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 95 / Thursday, May 17, 2007 / Notices CSC claims that the Commission failed to consider evidence regarding Congressional intent that the Commission consider non-broadcast uses for the television broadcast spectrum, such as those of police and fire departments. We seek comment on CSC’s assertion that the Cable Act requires the Commission to consider non-broadcast uses in its analysis of competing demands for spectrum. 8. Finally, given the passage of time since the Report and Order was adopted, we seek comment on the current number of broadcast stations that provide home shopping programs for the majority of their broadcast day. How do home shopping stations meet their public interest obligations? In particular, how do they comply with the requirements of the Children’s Television Act of 1990 and licensees’ obligation to provide coverage of issues facing their communities? 9. Ex Parte Rules.
