 Rico, has violated section 310(d) of the Communications 
 Act of 1934, as amended,1 and sections 73.1015, 73.3526,

 the Consent Decree, a copy of which is attached hereto and

 public interest would be served by approving the Consent

 conclude that our investigation raises no substantial or 
 material questions of fact as to whether CCG possesses the 
 basic qualifications, including character qualifications, 
 to be or remain a Commission licensee.

 section 4(i) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
