Dear EC Members,

I would like to announce the start of an EC motion on comments to the FCC NPRM on Section 7 (GN 18-22, FCC 18-18).  The FCC filing deadline is 21 May 2018 so there is only 8 days to finish the ballot to meet this.

All, please respond before 19 May if possible, so we can meet the FCC deadline. 

More on what the NPRM is about:

In this Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), the Commission proposes guidelines and procedures to implement section 7 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended. 47 U.S.C. § 157 (Communications Act § 7).  By this action, the Commission aims to ensure that new technologies and services that serve the public interest can develop and be made available to the public on a timely basis

Paul has delegated the conduct of the EC electronic ballot on the following motion to me and approved the corresponding early close.

This EC motion is per 802 OM 7.2 Procedure for communication with government bodies.

Motion: Move to approve the comments in; to FCCâ??s NPRM on Section 7 (FCC GN Docket No. 18-22). With the chair of 802.18 to have editorial privileges and for submission to the FCC by 21 May 2018.

Paul Nikolich has agreed to an early close.  Early close: As required in subclause 4.1.2 'Voting rules' of the IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee (LMSC) Operations Manual, this is notice that, to ensure the release is provided in a timely manner, this ballot may close early once sufficient responses are received to clearly decide a matter. Sufficient responses to clearly decide this matter will be based on the required majority for a motion under subclause 7.1.1 'Actions requiring approval by a majority vote' item (h), 'Other motions brought to the floor by members (when deemed in order by the Sponsor Chair)' of the IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee (LMSC) Policies and Procedures.
