I read that arrl is petitioning the FCC to expand the privileges of the technician license. Can you summarize those changes with the schedule?
A standard internet search produces this item from the ARRL with the information you seek. The FCC has not yet sought public comment, which would be the first step toward a Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM). Given the lack of FCC action to date, any forecast for implementation would be speculative.
