Notice of Agreements Filed, 95994 [2016-31615]

Download as PDF asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 95994 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 250 / Thursday, December 29, 2016 / Notices Part 1, Subpart F, Sections 1.990 through 1.994 of the Commission’s rules) through various changes. Notably, the Commission added new text to certain paragraphs of the rules (see e.g. Note to paragraph (i)(1) of Section 1.5001(i)), and by adding new paragraphs where needed. In this regard, we have added new paragraph (e) to Section 1.5000, which sets forth the new methodology for eligible public companies—both broadcast and common carrier—and new paragraphs (f)(2)–(3) of Section 1.5004, which sets forth new compliance provisions for such companies. The rules adopted in the 2016 Foreign Ownership Report and Order include the following broadcast-specific provisions in lieu of provisions applicable to common carrier licensees: • Broadcast licensees filing a petition for declaratory ruling (petition) to request Commission approval of foreign ownership in excess of the 25 percent benchmark in Section 310(b)(4) will use the broadcast ‘‘attribution’’ criteria to determine those U.S. and foreign ownership interests that must be disclosed in the petition. The disclosure will ensure the Commission has sufficient information to understand the licensee’s ownership structure and to verify the identity and ultimate control of the foreign investor for which the petitioner seeks specific approval. • Broadcast licensees will use the broadcast ‘‘insulation criteria’’ set forth in the broadcast attribution rules in determining whether the broadcaster must include in its petition a request for ‘‘specific approval’’ of a particular foreign investor because the investor holds, or would hold, directly and/or indirectly, more than 5 percent (or, in the case of certain passive investors, more than 10 percent) of the total outstanding capital stock (equity) and/or voting stock (or a controlling share) of the licensee’s controlling U.S.-organized parent company. The current insulation criteria for common carrier licensees will continue to apply. The Commission does not anticipate that these broadcast-specific provisions will impact the time per response for broadcast companies filing a Section 310(b)(4) petition. Thus, we estimate the same time per response for broadcast as for common carrier petitions. The Commission also finds that adopting a standardized filing and review process for broadcast licensees’ requests to exceed the 25 percent foreign ownership benchmark in Section 310(b)(4), as the Commission has done for common carrier licensees, will provide the broadcast sector with greater VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:41 Dec 28, 2016 Jkt 241001 transparency, more predictability, and reduce regulatory burdens and costs. In addition to these tailored changes to incorporate broadcast licensees into the existing foreign ownership rules applicable to common carrier licensees under Section 310(b)(4), the 2016 Foreign Ownership Report and Order clarifies the Commission’s foreign ownership compliance procedures (to be codified in Section 1.5004(f)(3)–(4)) specifically to allow a broadcast or common carrier licensee to file a petition for declaratory ruling to remedy the licensee’s inadvertent noncompliance with the statutory foreign ownership limits or the terms and conditions of the licensee’s existing foreign ownership ruling with reasonable assurance that the Commission will not take enforcement action. The Commission is also making nonsubstantial changes to this information collection to renumber the foreign ownership rules, which currently are codified in Part 1, Subpart F, Sections 1.990 through 1.994 of the Commission’s rules. The new rules, as adopted in the 2016 Foreign Ownership Report and Order, will be codified in Part 1, Subpart T, Section 1.5000 through 1.5004 of the Commission’s rules. There is for the most part a oneto-one correlation between the existing rules (1.990–1.994) and the new rules (1.5000–1.5004). Federal Communications Commission.
