In a September 26th announcement, FCC opened the public comment solicitation period in its 2002 Biennial Review of Telecommunications Regulations, which was officially released on September 23, 2002. The review, a broader version of the two previous reviews from 1998 and 2000, will be within the purview of five FCC bureaus and offices: International Bureau; Wireline Competition Bureau; Office of Engineering and Technology; Wireless Telecommunications Bureau; Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau. The fate of four FCC broadcast ownership rules are a key component of the review. The FCC also solicits opinions of the issue of determining information deemed "necessary in the public interest".
