22. This Report and Order does not adopt any new reporting, recordkeeping, or other compliance requirements.
E. Steps Taken To Minimize Significant Economic Impact on Small Entities, and Significant Alternatives Considered
23. The RFA requires an agency to describe any significant alternatives that it has considered in reaching its approach, which may include the following four alternatives, among others: (1) The establishment of differing compliance or reporting requirements or timetables that take into account the resources available to small entities; (2) the clarification, consolidation, or simplification of compliance or reporting requirements under the rule for small entities; (3) the use of performance, rather than design, standards; and (4) an exemption from coverage of the rule, or any part thereof, for small entities. /185/

24. This Report and Order does not adopt any new reporting requirements. Therefore no adverse economic impact on small entities will be sustained based on reporting requirements. There may be a regulatory fee increase on small entities, in some cases and in some industries, but if so it would be specifically in furtherance of the reform measures proposed in the Notice to better align regulatory fees with Commission FTEs in core bureaus, as required under section 9 of the Act. We are mitigating fee increases to small entities, and other entities, by, for example, limiting or capping the annual increase in regulatory fees to 7.5 percent. Absent a cap, the cable fee would increase approximately an additional 15 percent. In keeping with the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, in paragraphs 10 to 28 of this Report and Order, we have considered certain alternative means of mitigating the effects of fee increases to a particular industry segment. In addition, the Commission's rules provide a process by which regulatory fee payors may seek waivers or other relief on the basis of financial hardship. 47 CFR 1.1166
