On December 15, 2014, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) released a Second Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (2nd FNPRM) to invite comment on several issues that relate to ensuring quality captioning of video programming on television. The questions in this 2nd FNPRM include:

  • Should video programmers be required to file contact information and certification of captioning compliance with the FCC?
  • How can video programmer contact information and certifications be made widely available to the public?

Comments and reply comments due dates will be announced after this 2nd FNPRM is published in the Federal Register.
