By Public Notice dated September 17, 2001, we initiated a cost review proceeding to determine the appropriate residential and single-line business subscriber line charge (SLC) caps for price cap local exchange carriers (LECs). On October 3, 2001, several price cap LECs filed a petition requesting an extension of 30 days for the filing of their cost submissions. The price cap LECs request additional time due to the size and complexity of the task of compiling cost submission information. We agree that a limited extension is warranted. Price cap LECs must now file their cost submissions no later than November 16, 2001. We also extend the dates for filing comments and reply comments on the cost submissions. Comments will be due no later than December 17, 2001, and reply comments are due no later than January 9, 2002. When filing cost information and comments, parties should reference CC Docket Nos. 96-262 and 94-1.
This proceeding shall be treated as a “permit-but-disclose” proceeding in accordance with the Commission's ex parte rules. See47 CFR 1.1200 and 1.1206. Persons making oral ex parte presentations are reminded that memoranda summarizing the presentations must contain summaries of the substance of the presentations and not merely a listing of the subjects discussed. More than a one or two sentence description of the views and arguments presented is generally required. See47 CFR 1.1206(b). Other rules pertaining to oral and written ex parte presentations in permit-but-disclose proceedings are set forth in section 1.1206(b) of the Commission's rules, 47 CFR 1.1206(b).
