Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau; Federal Advisory 
Committee Act; Communications Security, Reliability, and 
Interoperability Council Meeting

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Notice of public meeting.


SUMMARY: In accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act, this 
notice advises interested persons that the FCC Communications Security, 
Reliability, and Interoperability Council will hold its fourth meeting 
on December 13, 2010, at 9 a.m. in the Commission Meeting Room of the 
Federal Communications Commission.

DATES: December 13, 2010.

ADDRESSES: Federal Communications Commission, Room TW-C305 (Commission 
Meeting Room), 445 12th Street, SW., Washington, DC 20554.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jeffery Goldthorp, Designated Federal 
Officer of the FCC's CSRIC, (202) 418-1096 (voice) or 
[email protected] (e-mail); or Lauren Kravetz, Deputy 
Designated Federal Officer of the FCC's CSRIC, 202-418-7944 (voice) or 
[email protected] (e-mail).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The notice of this meeting was first 
published in the Federal Register on November 30, 2010, only 14 days in 
advance of the meeting. While the publication did not meet the 15-day 
requirement for advance publication, exceptional circumstances warrant 
proceeding with the meeting on December 13, 2010. CSRIC members were 
informed of the December 13th meeting at the October public meeting of 
the Council and have been informed informally of the December meeting 
date on more than one occasion since then. A significant number of 
Council members have made business and travel plans in accordance with 
this schedule, and there is no date within one month of the planned 
date that will accommodate Council members' schedules. Delaying the 
meeting will also cause undue financial burdens on many of the members 
who have made travel arrangements.
    In addition, it is not possible at this time to schedule a half-day 
meeting in the FCC's Commission Meeting Room for any date within one 
month of December 13, 2010. As the Council's meeting planned for March 
2011 is scheduled to be the final meeting of the CSRIC before 
expiration of the CSRIC charter on March 18, 2011, delaying the meeting 
scheduled for December 13, 2010 threatens the Council's ability to 
complete its work. As a significant amount of the Council's work 
focuses on public safety issues, it is critical that the December 13, 
2010 meeting proceed as planned so as not to delay implementation of 
solutions and best practices for public safety communications and 
cybersecurity. Recognizing the one-day delay in Federal Register 
publication, the agency issued a Public Notice of this meeting on 
November 29, 2010 to mitigate the late Federal Register publication and 
as an additional way of advising the public of this meeting and their 
right to attend. As the December 13, 2010 meeting date was announced at 
the October public meeting of the Council, the meeting has now been 
broadly announced to the public more than once. The November 30, 2010, 
Federal Register notice is available at http://
