AGENDA OF THE AD HOC COMMISSION MEETING
1. IN THE MATTER OF THE DETERMINATION OF WHETHER THE COMMISSION SHALL SUBMIT A COST STUDY TO THE FCC AS THE BASIS FOR CALCULATING FEDERAL UNIVERSAL SERVICE SUPPORT. (General Counsel: Rolayne Wiest.)
In the FCC's order on universal service, it stated that a state commission may submit a forward-looking economic cost study to determine federal universal service support for its state. The FCC adopted criteria to determine federal universal service support to guide a state commission in the event it decides to conduct a cost study. A state commission must decide by August 15, 1997, whether to conduc own cost study. The FCC further provided that a state commission that elects to conduct such a study must file the study with the FCC by February 6, 1998.
TODAY, shall the Commission elect to conduc own cost study to submit to the FCC as the basis for calculating federal universal service support?
