The FCC says it's using money authorized by Congress to speed up service. It told lawmakers in its budget request the agency has cut the average time to complete a rulemaking, from circulating the paperwork to adoption, by 33% from 15 to 10 days. The processing time from adoption-to-release was reduced by 35%, from 31 to 20 days.
In 2005, 98% of the 1,325,130 actions were disposed of within the agency's processing goal, a 1% increase in comparison to 97% of 1,705,973 actions disposed of in FY 2004, it said.
Also in 2005, 95% of 556,113 applications were filed electronically or online, a 3% increase in comparison to FY 2004's 92% when 566,975 applications filed electronically or on-line.
