On October 5, 2012, the Commission released a Further Notice VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:40 Dec 04, 2012 Jkt 229001 of Proposed Rulemaking (‘‘FNPRM’’) on revisions to the program access rules. The FNPRM set deadlines for filing comments and reply comments at 30 and 45 days, respectively, after publication of the FNPRM in the Federal Register. A summary of the FNPRM was published in the Federal Register on October 31, 2012 (77 FR 66052). Accordingly, the filing dates were initially established as November 30, 2012 for comments and December 17, 2012 for reply comments. 2. On November 14, 2012, the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (‘‘NCTA’’) filed a request to extend the comment and reply comment deadlines to December 14, 2012 and January 14, 2013, respectively. NCTA states that Hurricane Sandy has disrupted business operations along the northeast corridor, thereby hindering the ability of some of its members to gather information and prepare comments for this proceeding. Accordingly, NCTA requests a two-week extension of the comment deadline to December 14, 2012. Because an identical two-week extension of the reply comment deadline would require reply comments to be filed during the last week of December in the middle of the holiday season, NCTA requests a four-week extension of the reply comment deadline. We grant the requested extension. As set forth in Section 1.46 of the Commission’s rules, the Commission’s policy is that extensions of time for filing comments in rulemaking proceedings shall not be routinely granted. In this case, however, an extension of the comment periods is warranted to provide commenters with sufficient time to prepare comments and reply comments in response to the FNPRM. 3. Accordingly, it is ordered that, pursuant to section 4(i) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. 154(i), and §§ 0.61, 0.283, and 1.46 of the Commission’s rules, 47 CFR 0.61, 0.283, and 1.46, the Motion for Extension of Time filed by NCTA is granted, and the deadlines to file comments and reply comments in this proceeding are extended to December 14, 2012 and January 14, 2013, respectively.
