President Donald Trump and congressional leaders on Friday reached a short-term deal to reopen the government for three weeks, until February 15, while negotiations continue over how much money should be allocated for border security, and the president’s demands for a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border. The decision means the FCC can resume normal operations today, after spending the first few hours unwinding the shutdown procedures. No details have been issued regarding when normal electronic filing procedures may resume. See the FCC news releases for the latest information.
The end of the shutdown also means the January 30 monthly meeting can be held at Commission headquarters, however no votes will be taken. The meeting, which the agency is required to conduct, would consist of internal announcements. Comments? Email Us.
