Chairwoman Rosenworcel announced that the following items are tentatively on the agenda for the March Open Commission Meeting:

 
 
 
 

Public Drafts of Meeting Items – The FCC is publicly releasing the draft text of each item expected to be considered at this Open Commission Meeting with the exception of items involving specific, enforcement-related matters including restricted proceedings and hearing designation orders. One-page cover sheets are included in the public drafts to help summarize each item. Links to these materials are provided below.

 
  • Cybersecurity Labeling Program for Smart Products 
    The Commission will consider a Report and Order to create a voluntary cybersecurity labeling program for wireless consumer Internet of Things (IoT) products, which would help consumers make informed purchasing decisions, differentiate trustworthy products in the marketplace, and create incentives for manufacturers to meet higher cybersecurity standards. (PS Docket No. 23-239)
  • Re-Defining ‘High-Speed’ Internet to Match Market Realities 
    The Commission will consider the draft 2024 Section 706 Report, which, if adopted, would fulfill the Commission’s statutory responsibility under section 706 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 and raise the fixed speed benchmark for advanced telecommunications capability to 100/20 Mbps. (GN Docket No. 22-270)
  • Single Network Future: Supplemental Coverage from Space 
    The Commission will consider a Report and Order and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that would advance the Commission’s vision for a single network future in which satellite and terrestrial networks work seamlessly together to provide coverage for consumer handsets that neither network can achieve on its own. (GN Docket No. 23-65; IB Docket No. 22-271)
  • ‘All-In’ Cable and Satellite TV Pricing 
    The Commission will consider a Report and Order to require cable and satellite TV providers to specify the “all-in” price for video programming services in promotional materials and on subscribers’ bills in order to allow consumers to make informed choices. (MB Docket No. 23-203)
  • ‘Missing and Endangered Persons' Emergency Alert Code 
    The Commission will consider a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that would propose to facilitate the more efficient and widespread dissemination of alerts and coordinated responses to incidents involving missing and endangered persons, an issue that is particularly prevalent in Tribal communities. (PS Docket Nos. 15-91, 15-94)
