By this Public Notice, the Federal Communications Commission (“Commission”) announces the meeting
date, time, and agenda of the next meeting of its Consumer Advisory Committee (“Committee”).


The next meeting of the Committee will take place on May 19, 2014, from 2:00 P.M. to 2:30 P.M. at the
Commission’s headquarters building, Room TW-C438/468, 445 12th Street, S.W., Washington, DC
At its May 19, 2014 meeting, the Committee will reaffirm recommendations adopted at its March 28,
2014 meeting regarding the IP transition, E-rate, a workshop to assess requirements for wireless medical
test beds, and a commendation to the Commission regarding its recent TV caption quality rule. This
reaffirmation is necessary because timely notice of action on these recommendations in the Federal
Register was not provided as required by the Federal Advisory Committee Act, 5 U.S.C. App. 2 (1988). A
limited amount of time will be available on the agenda for comments from the public. Alternatively,
members of the public may send written comments to: Scott Marshall, Designated Federal Officer of the
Committee at the address provided below.


The Commission first established the Committee in November 2000 for the purpose of making
recommendations regarding consumer issues within the jurisdiction of the Commission and to facilitate
the participation of consumers, including people with disabilities and underserved populations, such as
Native Americans and persons living in rural areas, in proceedings before the Commission.
The Committee is organized under, and operates in accordance with, the provisions of the Federal
Advisory Committee Act, 5 U.S.C. App. 2 (1988). Each meeting of the Committee is open to the public.
A notice of each meeting will be published in the Federal Register at least fifteen (15) days prior to each
meeting. Records will be maintained of each meeting and made available for public inspection.
The meeting is open to the public and the site is fully accessible to people using wheelchairs or other
mobility aids. Reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities, such as sign language

interpreters, open captioning, assistive listening devices, and Braille copies of the agenda are available
upon request. The request should include a detailed description of the accommodation needed and
contact information. Please provide as much advance notice as possible; last minute requests will be
accepted, but may not be possible to fill. To request an accommodation, send an email to or call the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau at 202-418-0530 (voice), 202-
418-0432 (TTY).
