WCB extends the temporary assignment of three toll free numbers to SAMHSA

On January 22, 2007, pursuant to the Commission’s exclusive jurisdiction over numbering resources1 and its obligation to protect public safety,2 the Wireline Competition Bureau (Bureau) assigned three toll free numbers to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)3
for a period of one year.4 Those numbers had previously been used by the Kristin Brooks Hope Center (KBHC), a private non-profit organization. KBHC filed an Application for Review of that Order on February 21, 2007.5 On November 20, 2007, SAMHSA filed a request that the temporary assignment be
made permanent to ensure the continuous operation of the three toll free numbers as public resources.6 The Bureau has extended this temporary assignment several times.7 In this Order, we extend the current temporary assignment for an additional two months.
