Meeting Agenda

    At its November 2, 2012 meeting, it is expected that the Committee 
will consider a recommendation from its Disability Working Group 
concerning updating of the Commission's rules regarding Speech-to-
Speech Relay Service (including implementation of video Speech-to-
Speech Relay Service). A second recommendation for the Committee's 
consideration, also proposed by its Disability Working Group, urges the 
Commission to include people with disabilities, low income, and 
underserved populations in its Mobile Health (mHealth) initiative. In 
addition, the Committee's Media Working Group is expected to offer a 
recommendation to the Committee regarding disclosure in political 
advertising. The Committee may also consider other recommendations from 
its working groups, and may also receive briefings from FCC staff and 
outside speakers on matters of interest to the Committee. A limited 
amount of time will be available on the agenda for questions and 
comments from the public.
