Commission's rules is to file a petition for rulemaking, which TWC has done. That petition has been put
on public notice, comment has been sought, and on March 3, 2001, the Commission adopted and released
a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking ("NPRM")0 to consider possible amendments to our rules. We will
not address here the issues raised in the petition for rulemaking or the responsive comments, either for or
against TWC's proposals. Furthermore, the NPRM expresses the Commission's view that it does not

WBDT(DT), Springfield, Ohio, from ACME Television Licenses of Ohio, LLC, to WBDT Television,
LLC, (File No. BALCDT-20100917AAT) IS GRANTED.
