USAC Recommends to FCC to Commit Priority Two Requests at 86% Discount Threshold for FY 2006

The USAC Schools and Libraries Committee held a non-quarterly board meeting this week and recommended to the FCC that USAC start funding priority two requests at 86% and above.  The FCC needs to approve that recommendation, however, it does appear they approved that USAC fund 87% discount rate and above as close to $22 million was committed at the 87% discount band in Wave 36.  In future waves we will be able to determine when the FCC approves USAC committing priority two at the 86% discount threshold.  This week the SLD committed two FY 2006 waves and one FY 2005 wave.
