The FCC in Fiscal 1971.
Federal Communications Commission, Washington, DC.
Fiscal 1971 saw major actions by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in all areas of its jurisdiction. In broadcasting, the FCC proposed new renewal rules and policies and issued a number of significant rulings on Fairness Doctrine matters. A policy statement outlining FCC cable television plans was submitted to the Congress. In the common carrier area, the FCC acted on computer communications and specialized common carriers and received applications for domestic satellites. The FCC advanced its program to provide additional land spectrum space for land mobile communications by establishing a Spectrum Management Task Force. A new fee schedule was adopted to return to the U.S. Treasury funds equal to the Commission's operating expenses. These highlights are summarized in this booklet, which also provides facts and figures about the number of authorized stations of various kinds under the FCC's authority. (JK)
