ACTING FCC CHAIRWOMAN CLYBURN STATEMENT ON RESUMPTION OF

COMMISSION OPERATIONS

"After a 16-day disruption, the FCC is open for business again. Our number one priority is to resume
normal operations as soon as possible, and the Commission's dedicated staff is working hard toward that
goal. We have already taken immediate steps to remedy disruptions caused by the shutdown and will be
issuing further guidance very soon. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through
this extraordinary situation."
