(1) Railroad police officer means a peace officer who is commissioned in his or her state of legal residence or state of primary employment and employed, full or part time, by a railroad to enforce state laws for the protection of railroad property, personnel, passengers, and/or cargo. (2) Commissioned means that a state official has certified or otherwise designated a railroad employee as qualified under the licensing requirements of that state to act as a railroad police officer in that state. (3) Property means rights-of-way, easements, appurtenant property, equipment, cargo, facilities, and buildings and other structures owned, leased, operated, maintained, or transported by a railroad. (4) Railroad means each class of freight railroad (i.e., Class I, II, III); Amtrak, Alaska Railroad, commuter railroads and passenger transit lines. (5) The word state, as used herein, encompasses states, territories and the District of Columbia. (B) Eligibility for licensing on the 700 MHz narrowband interoperability channels is restricted to entities that have as their sole or principal purpose the provision of public safety services. To effectively implement the provisions of the new Rule, no other modifications to existing FCC rules are required. The changes are intended to simplify the licensing process for railroad police officers and ensure interoperable communications. The modified rules provide a benefit to public safety licensees by ensuring that only railroad police officers with appropriate governmental authorization can operate on the interoperability and mutual aid channels during emergencies. This will provide the additional benefit of promoting interoperability with railroad police officers by eliminating eligibility as a gating factor when licensing spectrum. The Report and Order reduces the burden on railroad police by allowing them to meet eligibility standard by requiring employers of railroad police officers to obtain concurrence from the relevant state interoperability coordinator or regional planning committee before applying for a license to the Federal Communications Commission or operating on the interoperability and mutual aid channels. Compliance with this requirement is already a requisite for public safety eligibility to use the interoperability and mutual aid channels, consequently any new burden VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:18 Mar 24, 2020 Jkt 250001 imposed by this requirement would be minimal.

A qualified Low Power Television (LPTV) station that changes its carriage election must send an election change notice to each affected MVPD’s carriage election-specific email address by the carriage election deadline. Such change notices must include, with respect to each station covered by the notice: The station’s call sign, the station’s community of license, the DMA where the station is located, the specific change being made in election status, and an email address and phone number for carriage-related questions.

All qualified LPTV stations, whether being carried pursuant to must carry or retransmission consent, must send an email notice to all MVPDs that are or will be carrying the station no later than the next carriage election deadline of October 1, 2020.

    A qualified Low Power Television (LPTV) station that changes its 
carriage election must send an election change notice to each affected 
MVPD's carriage election-specific email address by the carriage 
election deadline. Such change notices must include, with respect to 
each station covered by the notice: The station's call sign, the

operators need to identify specific cable systems for which a carriage 
election applies only if the broadcaster changes its election for some 
systems of the cable operator but not all. In addition, the broadcaster 
must carbon copy [email protected], the Commission's election 
notice verification email inbox, when sending its carriage elections to 
MVPDs.
    All qualified LPTV stations, whether being carried pursuant to must 
carry or retransmission consent, must send an email notice to all MVPDs 
that are or will be carrying the station no later than the next 
carriage election deadline of October 1, 2020. Qualified LPTVs must do 
so even if they are not changing their carriage status from the current

election-specific email address, must be copied to 
[email protected], and must include the same information required 
for a change notification except that the notification may simply 
confirm the existing carriage status rather than a change in status.
    All qualified NCE translator stations must provide email notice to 
all MVPDs that are or will be carrying the translator no later than the 
next carriage election deadline of October 1, 2020. Similar to 
qualified LPTVs, these notifications must be sent to an MVPD's carriage 
election-specific email address, must be copied to

station's community of license, and the DMA where the station is
