[WC Docket No. 05-25; RM-10593; FCC 12-153; DA 13-379]


Special Access for Price Cap Local Exchange Carriers; AT&T 
Corporation Petition for Rulemaking To Reform Regulation of Incumbent 
Local Exchange Carrier Rates for Interstate Special Access Services

AGENCY: Federal Communications Commission.

ACTION: Final rule; correction of effective date.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This document corrects the effective date of the Report and 
Order adopted in FCC 12-153 and published in the Federal Register on 
January 11, 2013. This correction is necessary to comply with the 
Congressional Review Act (CRA) requirement that a major rule is 
effective 60 days after publication in the Federal Register or 60 days 
after receipt by Congress of a report in compliance with the CRA, 
whichever is later. The Federal Communications Commission (Commission) 
issued an Erratum on March 11, 2013, delaying the effective date of the 
Report and Order (except the information collection rules and the 
delegation rule) to March 25, 2013. Further information is provided in 
the supplementary information that follows.

DATES: The effective date of the Report and Order published on January 
11, 2013, at 78 FR 2572, is corrected to March 25, 2013. See 5 U.S.C. 
801(a)(3)(A). The information collection and recordkeeping requirements 
contained in section III and appendix A of that document are not 
effective until they are approved by the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB).

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Belinda Nixon, Wireline Competition 
Bureau, Pricing Policy Division, (202) 418-1520 or (202) 418-0484 
(TTY), or via email at [email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 18, 2012, the Commission 
released a Report and Order initiating a comprehensive special access 
data collection. The Report and Order specified the nature of the data 
to be collected by the Commission and the scope of respondents, as well 
as delegated authority to the Commission's Wireline Competition Bureau 
to review and modify the collection to implement the requirements of 
the Report and Order. This Report and Order was published in the 
Federal Register on

[[Page 24684]]

January 11, 2013, at 78 FR 2572. That document set March 12, 2013, as 
the effective date for the Report and Order, with two exceptions. The 
delegation of authority to the Wireline Competition Bureau to implement 
a data collection in accordance with the terms of the Report and Order 
became effective upon adoption as specified in paragraph 137 of the 
document published at 78 FR 2572, January 11, 2013. Also, the 
information and recordkeeping requirements adopted in the Report and 
Order will not become effective until publication of an announcement in 
the Federal Register that these requirements have been approved by the 
OMB.
    This document corrects the effective date of the Report and Order 
to comply with the requirements of the CRA, 5 U.S.C. 801-808. The 
Report and Order was classified as a major rule subject to 
congressional review. 5 U.S.C. 804(2). Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 
801(a)(3)(A), a major rule cannot be made effective until 60 days after 
the latter of publication in the Federal Register or receipt by 
Congress of a report in compliance with the CRA, 5 U.S.C. 801(a)(1). 
Congress did not receive the CRA report until January 24, 2013, 
thirteen days after publication of the final rule document in the 
Federal Register. Consequently, the Report and Order (except for the 
information collection requirement and the delegation of authority) is 
effective 60 days after that date.
    As a result, the Commission issued an Erratum to the Report and 
Order delaying the effective date (except the information collection 
rules and the delegation rule) to March 25, 2013. This publication, 
which was inadvertently delayed, provides notice of the effective date.

Federal Communications Commission.

Associate Bureau Chief, Wireline Competition Bureau.
