Implementation of the Low Power Protection Act

The FCC has initiated a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to implement the Low Power Protection Act (LPPA), as enacted by Congress on January 5, 2023. The LPPA provides certain low power television (LPTV) stations with a “limited window of opportunity” to apply for primary spectrum use status as Class A television stations. This Notice of Proposed Rulemaking seeks comment on how to implement the window consistent with Congressional direction.
