The FCC has released the agenda for its August open meeting, scheduled for Thursday, August 4, 2016. The agenda contains the following items:
- Relay Services for Deaf-Blind Individuals: The Commission will consider a Report and Order (GC Docket No. 10-210) that would convert the National Deaf Blind Equipment Distribution Program from a pilot program to a permanent program.
- HAC-Compatible Mobile Handsets: The Commission will consider a Report and Order (WT Docket No. 15-285) that would implement changes to the scope of the wireless hearing aid compatibility rules.
- Inmate Calling Services: The Commission will consider an Order on Reconsideration (WC Docket No. 12-375), responding to a petition filed by Michael S. Hamden, that would ensure that the rates for Inmate Calling Services (ICS) are just, reasonable, and fair and explicitly account for facilities’ ICS-related costs.
The meeting is scheduled to start at 10:30 am in Room TW-C305 of the FCC building at 445 12th Street, S.W., Washington, DC., and will be shown online at www.fcc.gov/live.
