(WT Docket No. 17-200)

  • Modernizing Regulatory Fee Rules to Level the Playing Field, Initiating FY20 Process
    The Commission will consider a Report and Order and Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. The Report and Order would level the playing field between domestic and foreign licensed space stations by assessing a regulatory fee on non-U.S. licensed space stations with United States market access. The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking initiates the Commission’s annual regulatory fee proceeding. (MD Docket Nos. 20-105, 19-105)
