FCC Re-Org Takes Effect March 25

The reorganization of several of the FCC's bureaus will take effect on March 25. In January the Commission announced the reorganization of several bureaus to make the FCC more efficient and effective.

The shift created several new groups and altered old ones. They include:

* The Media Bureau (formerly the Cable Services and Mass Media Bureaus);
* Wireline Competitition Bureau (formerly the Common Carrier Bureau);
* The Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau (formerly the Consumer Information Bureau);
* The International Bureau;
* The Enforcement Bureau;
* The Wireless Telecommunications Bureau;
* The Office of Legislative Affairs (formerly the Office of Legislative and Intergovernmental Affairs).

The Commission also launched a new Web site detailing its reform efforts, at: http://www.fcc.gov/fcc_reform/
