Extensions will be granted only if the licensee shows that the failure to commence service is due to causes beyond its control. In 1995, via a Report and Order in PR Docket No. 93–61; FCC 95–41, published at 60 FR 15248, the Commission established construction deadlines for Location and Monitoring Service (LMS) licensees in the marketlicensed multilateration LMS services. On July 8, 2004, the Commission adopted a Report and Order under WT Docket Nos. 02–381, 01–14, and 03–202; FCC 04–166, published at 69 FR 75144, that amended § 90.155 to provide holders of multilateration location service authorizations with five- and ten-year benchmarks to place in operation their base stations that utilize multilateration technology to provide multilateration location service to onethird of the Economic Area’s (EA’s) population within five years of initial license grant, and two-thirds of the population within ten years. At the fiveand ten-year benchmarks, licensees are required to file a map and FCC Form 601 showing compliance with the coverage requirements pursuant to § 1.946 of the Commission’s rules. On January 31, 2007, via an Order on Reconsideration, and Memorandum Opinion and Order, under DA 07–479, the FCC granted two to three additional years to meet the five-year construction requirement for certain multilateration Location and Monitoring Service Economic Area licenses, and extended the 10-year requirement for such licenses two years. These requirements will be used by Commission personnel to evaluate whether or not certain licensees are providing substantial service as a means of complying with their construction requirements, or have demonstrated that an extended period of time for construction is warranted.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:36 Jun 10, 2019 Jkt 247001 The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has received Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval for public information collection pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. An agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number, and no person is required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number. Comments concerning the accuracy of the burden estimates and any suggestions for reducing the burden should be directed to the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section below. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Cathy Williams, Office of the Managing Director, at (202) 418–2918, or email: Cathy.Williams@fcc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The total annual reporting burdens and costs for the respondents are as follows: OMB Control Number: 3060–1260. OMB Approval Date: April 15, 2019. OMB Expiration Date: April 30, 2022. Title: Broadcast Incubator Program. Form Number: N/A. Respondents: Business or other forprofit entities; not-for-profit institutions; Tribal Governments. Number of Respondents and Responses: 20 respondents; 123 responses. Estimated Time per Response: 4 to 16 hours. Frequency of Response: On occasion reporting requirement; annual reporting requirement. Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. The statutory authority that covers this information collection is 47 U.S.C. 151, 152(a), 154(i), 257, 303, 307–310, and 403. Total Annual Burden: 1,179 hours. Total Annual Cost: $326,700. Privacy Impact Assessment: No impact(s). Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: The need for confidentiality for this information collection is not anticipated; however, when submitting an incubation proposal (including the underlying contract and certified statements), applicants may, upon request, redact confidential or proprietary terms. Needs and Uses: The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approved the information collection titled ‘‘Broadcast Incubator Program’’ under OMB Control No. 3060–1260, as a result of a recent rulemaking, FCC 18– 114. On August 3, 2018, the Commission released a Report and Order (Order), SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Rules and Policies to Promote New Entry and Ownership Diversity in the Broadcasting Services, FCC 18–114, in MB Docket No. 17–289, establishing the requirements that will govern the incubator program that the Commission previously decided to adopt to support the entry of new and diverse voices into the radio broadcast industry. The incubator program is designed for small businesses, struggling station owners, and new entrants that do not have any other means to access the financial assistance and operational support necessary for success in the broadcast industry. The goal is the pairing of these small aspiring, or struggling, broadcast station owners with established broadcasters. These incubation relationships will provide new entrants and struggling small broadcasters access to the financing, mentoring, and industry connections that are necessary for success in the industry, but to date have been unavailable to many. In return for successfully incubating a small aspiring, or struggling, broadcast station owner as part of the Commission’s incubator program, an incumbent broadcaster will be eligible to receive a waiver (a reward waiver) of the Commission’s Local Radio Ownership Rule following the successful conclusion of a successful qualifying incubation relationship. The standard term for an incubation relationship is three years. Commission staff will use the applications, certified statements, and contracts submitted by potential incubating and incubated entities, along with any responses to Commission requests for additional information to determine qualifications for participation in the incubator program. Commission staff will use the periodic reports to determine whether ongoing incubation relationships are proceeding in a manner consistent with the parties’ initial filings and are likely to result in a successful incubation relationship. At the end of a successful incubation relationship, either the incubated entity will own and operate a full-service AM or FM station independently or the incubated station will be on a firmer footing if the station was struggling at the start of the relationship. In the event the parties seek to extend the duration of their incubation relationship beyond the standard threeyear term, the filing of a request for such an extension will enable Commission staff to gauge the types of problems incubating parties are experiencing.

Additionally, Commission staff will review documentation submitted to seek a reward waiver to assess whether the market where the reward waiver is sought is comparable to the market where the incubated station was located.
