Prohibited communications are included in a public, non-decisional file associated with, but not a part of, the decisional record of the proceeding. Unless the Commission determines that the prohibited communication and any responses thereto should become a part of the decisional record, the prohibited off-the-record communication will not be considered by the Commission in reaching its decision.

The Commission will grant such a request only when it determines that fairness so requires. Any person identified below as having made a prohibited off-the-record communication shall serve the document on all parties listed on the official service list for the applicable proceeding in accordance with Rule 2010, 18 CFR 385.2010.

L. 109–58, section 1298, 119 Stat. 594, 986 (2005), which added section 223 to the Federal Power Act, 16 U.S.C. 824 et seq. (2000). FPA section 223 requires the Commission to convene joint boards on a regional basis pursuant to FPA section 209 ‘‘to study the issue of security constrained economic dispatch for the various market regions,’’ ‘‘to consider issues relevant to what constitutes ‘security constrained economic dispatch’ and how such a mode of operating * * * affects or enhances the reliability and affordability of service,’’ and ‘‘to make recommendations to the Commission.’’ The September 30 Order invited the Canadian provinces, Canada and Mexico to participate as observers on the appropriate joint boards. The Province of Manitoba, Canada, wishes to participate on the PJM/MISO joint board. We note that Mr. Garry Hastings of the Department of Energy, Science and Technology will represent Manitoba on the PJM/MISO joint board.
