LEGAL CITATION: Communications Act of 1934, as amended, Sections 1, 2, 4, 
                and Title III, 47 U.S.C. 151 et. seq. (1988)

DESCRIPTION: The Communications Act of 1934 (the
Act) requires anyone wishing to engage
in communications by radio within the
United States and between the United
States and points outside the United
States to obtain a license from the
Federal Communications Commission
(FCC) for the use, but not the
ownership, of all channels of radio
communications; and no such license
shall be construed to create any right
beyond the terms, conditions and
periods of the license.

The Act requires the FCC, in granting
radio station licenses, to determine
if such a license would serve the
public interest, convenience and
necessity and empowers the FCC to
impose conditions pursuant to this
determination.  The Act also empowers
the FCC to deny applications for radio
licenses where it is unable to find
that such grant would serve the public
interest, convenience and necessity.

DESCRIPTION: A cable television system is not
allowed to carry any television
broadcast signal if the cable system
owns, operates, controls or has an
interest in a television broadcast
station whose Grade B contour overlaps
the service area of such cable system.

A cable television system may directly
or indirectly own, operate, control,
or have an interest in a national
television network (such as ABC, CBS,
or NBC) only if such system does not
pass more than (i) 10 percent of homes
passed on a nationwide basis when
aggregated with all other cable
systems in which the network holds
such a cognizable interest, and (ii)
50 percent of homes passed within any
one ADI (Arbitron Area of Dominant
Influence), except that a cable
television system facing a competing
system will not be counted toward this
50 percent limit. (76.501(b))

A cable television company may not
lease excess transmission time or
capacity from a licensee of an
Instructional Television Fixed Service
(ITFS) station (television services
intended for use in educational
institutions) if the ITFS station is
located within 20 miles of that cable
television company's franchise area.

A telephone common carrier may not
engage in the provision (e.g.,
ownership, control, or production) of
video programming to the viewing
public in its telephone service area,
but may distribute such programming on
a common carrier basis and may only
have up to a five percent non-
controlling financial interest in
video programmers. (63.54(a))

A telephone common carrier may not
provide channels of communications or
pole line conduit space, or other
rental arrangements to any entity
which is directly or indirectly owned,
operated or controlled by, or under
common control with, such telephone
common carrier, where such facilities
or arrangements are to be used for, or
in connection with, the provision of
video programming to the viewing
public in the telephone service area
of the telephone common carrier.

In cable television franchise areas
served by a single cable operator,
that operator may not be authorized to
use frequencies assigned to the
Multichannel Multipoint Distribution
Service (MMDS) (the 2150-2165 Mhz and
2596-2644 Mhz bands), if a portion of
an MMDS station's protected service
area lies within that cable television
operator's franchise area. (21.912)

DESCRIPTION: Section 7(c) of the Natural Gas Act of
1938, as amended, requires a natural
gas company, or a person which will be
a natural gas company upon completion
of proposed construction or extension
of transportation facilities, to
obtain a certificate of public
convenience and necessity to
construct, extend, acquire, or operate
such facilities.  In addition, a
certificate is required to transport
or sell for resale natural gas in
interstate commerce.

The Act requires the FERC to hold
hearings on applications for permanent
certificates and to give interested
persons notice of such hearings and
notices of applications are published
in the Federal Register.

The FERC does not require a
certificate of pubic convenience and
necessity for certain replacement
construction, maintenance, emergency
facilities, auxiliary installations,
and certain types of taps.

Natural gas services for drilling oil
wells, or for testing or purging new
natural gas pipeline facilities are
exempt from the certificate

Certain "emergency" sales,
transportation, or exchanges are
exempt from the certificate
requirement.  When a certificate is
required, the FERC may grant a
temporary certificate for sale or
transportation in emergency
circumstances, pending the
determination on a permanent

DESCRIPTION: The United States Postal Service is
generally authorized to "receive,
transmit, and deliver throughout the
United States, its territories and
possessions ... written and printed
matter, parcels and like materials." 
The Postal Service also has the
exclusive authority to "provide and
sell postage stamps."

A carrier other than the U.S. Postal
Service may carry letters if, among
other things, each letter is enclosed
in an envelope, proper postage has
been paid in stamps, the stamp is
canceled by the sender, and the
carrier endorses the envelope.

The postal regulations define
"letters" to exclude telegrams, books
and magazines, and other materials. 
The regulations also permit letters to
be carried accompanying cargo, by the
sender, by others without
compensation, and by special
messengers.  The Postal Service has
suspended its regulations with respect
to private "express mail" services.

Service may determine that a given
