ACTION: Notice of meeting. AGENCY: SUMMARY: 1. The NPRM in this proceeding established a comment deadline of October 18, 2011 and a reply comment deadline of October 28, 2011. On October 19, 2011, the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) requested that the reply comment deadline be extended by one week, due to the volume of substantive material filed in the initial comments and the groundbreaking nature of the issues considered in the proceeding. We grant NAB’s request in part. 2. As set forth in Section 1.46(a) of the Commission’s Rules, 47 CFR 1.46(a), the Commission’s policy is that extensions of time shall not be routinely granted. Given the importance of the issues in this proceeding and in the interest of encouraging thoughtful consideration of these issues, however, we believe that granting in part NAB’s request is necessary to facilitate the development of a full record. Due to the Commission’s statutory deadline in this proceeding, we find that the requested one week extension is too long, and PO 00000 [FR Doc. 2011–27975 Filed 10–27–11; 8:45 a.m.] Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 E:\FR\FM\28OCP1.SGM 28OCP1 66890 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 209 / Friday, October 28, 2011 / Proposed Rules tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS under the heading ‘‘Enter keyword or ID’’ and selecting ‘‘Search.’’ Select the link ‘‘Submit a Comment’’ that corresponds with ‘‘DFARS Case 2011– D039.’’ Follow the instructions provided at the ‘‘Submit a Comment’’ screen.
