ARRL Opposes Waiver Request on License Exam Credit

The ARRL has filed comments in opposition to a waiver request filed by the Anchorage VEC to speed up action on its petition to permit lifetime credit for license exam elements passed. The Anchorage group had filed a petition for rule making on the same issue in April, and followed it up with the request for a blanket waiver in July.
According to the ARRL Letter, the League has not yet taken a position on the merits of the underlying proposal, but does not feel that the Anchorage VEC has justified its request for immediate action rather than letting the rulemaking proceeding run its regular course.
