Corrected AccessInfo Notice Re: Extended Due Date for VRS Reform

Corrected AccessInfo Notice Re: Extended Due Date for VRS Reform

On December 15, 2011, the Commission released a Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (FNPRM) seeking comment on a series of options and proposals to improve the structure and efficiency of the video relay service (VRS) program.  The goal of these proposals is to ensure that VRS provides functionally equivalent communications services to its users – particularly given advances in commercially-available technology – and remains immune from the waste, fraud, and abuse that has threatened its long-term viability. 

On February 23, 2012, the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau (Bureau) issued an Order extending the deadlines for filing comments and reply comments concerning the FNPRM on improving the structure and efficiency of the VRS program.  The due dates were originally set for March 2, 2012 for filing comments and March 19, 2012 for filing reply comments.  By this Order, the Bureau extended the due dates as follows:

Comment Date:  March 9, 2012
Reply Comment Date:  March 30, 2012
