Here's a quote from the story: "A random sampling of the more than 360 comments filed at this point suggests the tide is running firmly in favor of the FCC's stance. Some even praised the Commission."

I know there's been talk for years but I don't know if there's ever been a proposal from the FCC to drop it. Yes, it is only a proposal now. It's in the comment stage, after which, I think they will adopt it and drop the code requirement.
It does look promising enough at this stage that I am keeping an eye on it before I get my next license. I will still learn code and but it won't be a do or die type of learning.
