Net Neutrality Order Moves a Step Closer to Publication

Continuing the slow march to Federal Register publication -- and certain court challenge -- of the Net Neutrality rules, the FCC today published notices of the two information collection provisions subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The notices address the formal complaint rules for violations of the new requirements and the public disclosure rules for network management practices. Regarding the latter, see also the clarification released by the FCC last week.

Comments on the two information collection notices are due by August 8. Publication of the rules in the Federal Register is not likely before the comment date.
