The FCC seeks comment on a petition filed by the Telecommunications Relay Service (TRS) Advisory Council for reconsideration of the rates established in the 2017 VRS Rate Order to compensate video relay service (VRS) providers for an eight-month trial of skills-based routing.  The Council requests the rate be increased to $5.29 per conversation minute and seeks amendment to the deadlines for VRS providers to notify the Commission of their intent to participate in and to commence such trial adopted in the 2017 VRS Improvements Order.
