FCC Encouraged to Provide Permanent Public Access to Legal Materials

On November 18, 2013, the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) issued a call for input on how the agency can better serve the public interest. On December 2, 2013, SLA joined several other organizations in sending a letter encouraging the FCC to make primary legal materials and publicly available comments hosted exclusively on the Commission’s website also available through the Federal Digital System (FDsys) of the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). This addition would facilitate continued public access in the event of a government shutdown or other circumstances that force the Commission’s website offline.
