FCC Proposes FY 2016 Regulatory Fee Schedule

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) released proposed fiscal year 2016 regulatory fee schedule. The agency is looking to collect the $384,012,497 with $133.97 million coming from radio and television stations. The new schedule adds a class for radio broadcasters who serve 3,000,001-6,000,000 people, and sets fees on a standardized incremental increase scale as the population served by the licensees increases. The fees range from $690 for a Class C AM in areas serving under 25,000 in population to $17,175 for FM Classes B, C, C0, C1, and C2 for stations serving over 6 million in population.
