It's not going to happen. ARRL is going to spin their wheels on this, and they might even get NCVEC involved in it. But in the end, they tried this before, and it failed: http://w5jgv.com/downloads/FCC-05-143A1.pdf Yeah, the details are a little different, but FCC identified what they considered to be fatal flaws in the attempt to add privileges to the entry-level class, or to replace the entry-level class with a different one. They called the General class exam easy. None of the new entry-level proposals directly address the flaws that caused FCC to turn this down in 2005, so it's safe to assume that the likelihood of this passing is nearly zero today. It's too bad none of those hard-working people could be bothered to read the 2005 ruling, and find a way to update their proposals to address the flaws identified by FCC back then. Nothing to see here. Just more wheel-spinning (and money-wasting) in Newington, CT.
