The Commission has received OMB approval for most of the information collections required by these orders. More recently, through several orders, the Commission has changed or modified reporting obligations for highcost support. In the CAF Phase II Auction Order, the Commission adopted rules requiring Connect America Phase II auction support recipients to certify the networks they operated in the prior year meet the Commission’s performance requirements, to identify the total amount of support, if any, that was used for capital expenditures in the previous calendar year, and to certify they have available funds for all project costs that will exceed the amount of support to be received from the authorization stemming from the Phase II auction for the next calendar year. Connect America Fund, et al., WC Docket No. 10–90, et al., Report and Order and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, 31 FCC Rcd 5949 (2016) (81 FR 44414 (July 7, 2016) and 81 FR 40235 (June 21, 2016)) (CAF Phase II Auction Order). In the New York Waiver Order, the Commission extended to New York carriers who receive Connect America Phase II support in conjunction with the State’s New NY Broadband Program the same annual reporting requirements adopted for Phase II auction recipients, as well as the requirement for the State public service commission to certify annually that those carriers’ high cost support ‘‘was used in the preceding calendar year and will be used in the coming calendar year only for the provision, maintenance, and upgrading of facilities and services for which the support is intended.’’ Connect America Fund; ETC Annual Reports and Certifications, WC Docket Nos. 10–90, 14–58, Order, 32 FCC Rcd 968 (2017) (New York Waiver Order). PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 In the December 2018 Rate-of-Return Order, the Commission modified the reasonable request certification rule applicable to rate-of-return ETCs to (1) require Connect America FundAlternative Connect America Cost Model (CAF–ACAM) support recipients to certify that they are meeting the relevant reasonable request standard and (2) require rate-of-return ETCs receiving legacy high-cost support to certify that they are meeting a 25 Mbps/ 3 Mbps reasonable request standard. Connect America Fund et al., WC Docket No. 10–90 et al., Report and Order, Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, and Order on Reconsideration, FCC 18–176, at 19–20, para. 17 (84 FR 4711 (Feb. 19, 2019) and 84 FR 2132 (Feb. 6, 2019)) (Dec. 13, 2018) (December 2018 Rate-of-Return Order). See also 47 CFR 54.313(f)(1)(i). In the CAF Phase II Transitions Order, the Commission adopted rules requiring price cap or fixed competitive eligible communications carriers receiving phase-down support to certify that the phase-down support they received in the previous year was used to provide voice service to high-cost and extremely high-cost census blocks where they continue to have federal obligation to provide such services. Connect America Fund, WC Docket 10–90, Report and Order, FCC 19–8, at 11, para. 25 (84 FR 8619 (March 11, 2019)) (Feb. 15, 2019). The Commission therefore revises this information collection, as well as Form 481 and its accompanying instructions, to reflect these new and revised requirements. We also increased the burdens associated with existing reporting requirements to account for additional carriers that will be subject to those requirements. Federal Communications Commission.
