ARLB023 FCC Extends Filing Deadlines for Affected Louisiana Parishes
and Mississippi Counties

In the wake of the disruption caused after Hurricane Ida struck the
Gulf Coast of the US as a Category 4 storm on Sunday, August 29, the
FCC has announced that it is extending certain filing deadlines for
those in Louisiana and Mississippi unable to meet them due to the
storm. President Joseph Biden issued an emergency declaration for
Mississippi on August 28 and a major disaster declaration for
Louisiana on August 29.

Pursuant to its authority to waive rules for good cause and to
alleviate any additional burden that may be caused by FCC filing
requirements and regulatory deadlines, the FCC has extended certain
deadlines occurring August 29 – September 30, 2021, inclusive, for
affected licensees and applicants in the affected areas.

The FCC is defining “affected areas” as the Louisiana parishes and
Mississippi counties that the Federal Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) has designated as eligible for Individual or Public
Assistance for the purposes of federal disaster relief as of Friday,
September 3, which includes all parishes and counties in those
states. The deadline extension does not apply to individuals living
elsewhere in the US.

For affected licensees and applicants in Louisiana and Mississippi,
the FCC has extended until October 1 any deadlines currently set
within the period August 29 – September 30, 2021, inclusive, with
respect to Wireless Radio Service applications, notifications, and
reports pursuant to Parts 1 (Subpart F only), 13, 20, 22, 24, 27,
30, 74 (excluding Subparts G, and L), 80, 87, 90, 95, 96, 97, or 101
of the Commission’s rules, including, but not limited to, filings
regarding certain minor license modifications, license renewals, and
notifications of construction.

Licensees and applicants making delayed filings in accordance with
this extension must include with those filings a certification made
under penalty of perjury that the deadlines could not be met within
the time otherwise provided in the Commission’s rules because of
Hurricane Ida.
