Energy Conservation Program for Consumer Products and Certain Commercial and Industrial Equipment: Proposed Determination of Portable Air Conditioners as a Covered Consumer Product
Document Number: 2013-15977
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-07-05
Agency: Department of Energy
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE or the ``Department'') has determined tentatively that portable air conditioners (ACs) qualify as a covered product under Part A of Title III of the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA), as amended. DOE has determined that portable ACs meet the criteria for covered products because classifying products of such type as covered products is necessary or appropriate to carry out the purposes of EPCA, and the average U.S. household energy use for portable ACs is likely to exceed 100 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year.
Structure and Practices of the Video Relay Service Program; Telecommunications Relay Services and Speech-to-Speech Services for Individuals With Hearing and Speech Disabilities
Document Number: 2013-15926
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-07-05
Agency: Federal Communications Commission, Agencies and Commissions
In this document, the Commission adopts further measures to improve the structure, efficiency, and quality of the video relay service (VRS) program, reducing the inefficiencies in the program, as well as reducing the risk of waste, fraud, and abuse, and ensuring that the program makes full use of advances in commercially-available technology. These measures involve a fundamental restructuring of the program to support innovation and competition, drive down ratepayer and provider costs, eliminate incentives for waste that have burdened the Telecommunications Relay Services (TRS) Fund in the past, and further protect consumers. The Commission adopts several measures in order to: ensure that VRS users can easily select their provider of choice by promoting the development of interoperability and portability standards; enable consumers to use off-the-shelf devices and deploying a VRS application to work with these devices; create a centralized TRS User Registration Database to ensure VRS user eligibility; encourage competition and innovation in VRS call handling services; spur research and development on VRS services by entering into a Memorandum of Understanding with the National Science Foundation; and pilot a National Outreach Program to educate the general public about relay services. In this document, the Commission also adopts new VRS compensation rates that move these rates toward actual costs over the next four years which will better approximate the actual, reasonable costs of providing VRS, and will reduce the costs of operating the program. The Commission takes these steps to ensure the integrity of the TRS Fund while providing stability and certainty to providers.
Structure and Practices of the Video Relay Service Program: Telecommunications Relay Services and Speech-to-Speech Services for Individuals With Hearing and Speech Disabilities
Document Number: 2013-15925
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-07-05
Agency: Federal Communications Commission, Agencies and Commissions
In this document, the Commission issues a further notice of proposed rulemaking (FNPRM) seeking comment on options and proposals to ensure that the entire telecommunications relay services (TRS) program continues to offer functional equivalence to all eligible users and is as immune as possible from any additional waste, fraud, and abuse. These proposals involve a transition plan to a market-based compensation methodology for VRS, funding mechanism for research and development, TRS Fund contribution calculations and reporting method, allowing hearing persons to purchase access to video point to point service, replacement of the current TRS Advisory Council, disaggregation of emergency calls to 911 and additional issues relating to restructure of the VRS program. The Commission continues to solicit input on ways to strengthen VRS to ensure its efficiency and that this service is being offered in a functionally equivalent manner.
