Confidentiality: No need for confidentiality required. Privacy Impact Assessment: No impact(s). Needs and Uses: When Congress granted auction authority in the Balanced Budget Act for commercial broadcast and secondary broadcast services, it did not eliminate or revise 47 U.S.C. Section 307(b) of the Communications Act. Section 307(b) requires that the Commission effect a fair, efficient, and equitable distribution of radio stations throughout the United States. Section 307(b) information was previously collected in the framework of comparative hearing proceedings when mutually exclusive AM applications proposing to serve different communities were filed, or when nonmutually exclusive AM applications proposed a change in community of license. Since the comparative hearing process was discontinued as a result of the implementation of competitive bidding, the Commission must now collect the 307(b) information and undertake a Section 307(b) analysis in the context of the auction proceedings. For example, for mutually exclusive AM applications proposing to serve different communities, the process is performed prior to conducting the auction. In order to evaluate Section 307(b) considerations, the Commission requires the submission of supplemental information subsequent to the AM auction filing window application (FCC Form 175 and technical information) submission. Section 307(b) information is not collected in the initial auction filing window application because Section 307(b) considerations are not pertinent to all window filed application—Section 307(b) is relevant only when the mutually exclusive AM application group consists of applications to serve different communities of license, or when a nonmutually exclusive AM application proposes a major modification of facilities, seeking a community of license change. Specifically, where the mutually exclusive group consists of proposals to serve different communities of license, each applicant within the group must submit an E:\FR\FM\28DEN1.SGM 28DEN1
