Hollingsworth to Stay Put at FCC

2007-10-30The ARRL reports that Riley Hollingsworth, Special Counsel for the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau, has decided not to retire; he had announced last week that he would leave the FCC in January 2008.  “After spending the entire weekend thinking about the decision [to retire], it became more and more clear to me that it just isn’t the right decision for me right now.  There are several issues on the table that I want to continue to work through with the amateur community.”

The Enforcement Bureau is the primary organizational unit within the Federal Communications Commission that is responsible for enforcement of provisions of the Communications Act, the Commission’s rules, Commission orders and terms and conditions of station authorizations, as well as enforcement of Amateur Radio rules (Part 97).
