E6–2708 Filed 2–24–06; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 6717–01–P DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY Federal Energy Regulatory Commission [Docket No. EL06–16–000] Before Commissioners: Joseph T. Kelliher, Chairman; Nora Mead Brownell, and Suedeen G. Kelly; Investigation of Terms and Conditions of Public Utility Market-Based Rate Authorizations; Order Revising MarketBased Rate Tariffs and Authorizations Issued February 16, 2006. 1. The Commission has decided to rescind Market Behavior Rules 2 and 6 and to codify the substance of Market Behavior Rules 1, 3, 4, and 5 in the Commission’s regulations under the Federal Power Act (FPA).1 The central purpose of the Market Behavior Rules 2 was to prohibit market manipulation by public utility sellers acting under market-based rate authority. This prohibition is set out in Market Behavior Rule 2. Subsequent to the issuance of the Market Behavior Rules, Congress provided the Commission with specific anti-manipulation authority in the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct 2005).3 To implement this new authority, the Commission recently issued Order No. 670, adopting a final rule making it unlawful for any entity, 1 16 U.S.C. 791a et seq. (2000). of Terms and Conditions of Public Utility Market-Based Rate Authorizations, ‘‘Order Amending Market-Based Rate Tariffs and Authorizations,’’ 105 FERC ¶ 61,218 (2003), reh’g denied, 107 FERC ¶ 61,175 (2004) at Appendix A (Market Behavior Rules Order). The Market Behavior Rules are currently on appeal. Cinergy Marketing & Trading, L.P. v. FERC, Nos. 04–1168 et al. (DC Cir. Filed April 28, 2004). 3 Energy Policy Act of 2005, Public Law No. 109– 58, 119 Stat. 594 (2005). Congress prohibited the use or employment of ‘‘any manipulative or deceptive device or contrivance’’ in connection with the purchase or sale of electric energy or transmission services subject to the jurisdiction of the Commission. Congress directed the Commission to give these terms the same meaning as under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, 15 U.S.C. 78j(b) (2000). 2 Investigation PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 9811 including public utility market-based rate sellers, to engage in fraudulent or deceptive conduct in connection with the purchase or sale of electric energy, natural gas, or transmission or transportation services subject to the jurisdiction of the Commission.4 In order to avoid regulatory uncertainty and confusion, to assure that all market participants are held to the same standard, and to provide clarity to entities subject to our rules and regulations, we rescind Market Behavior Rule 2 effective upon publication of this order in the Federal Register. 2. In addition, we will remove Market Behavior Rules 1, 3, 4, and 5 from public utility market-based rate tariffs and instead codify them in our regulations, rescind Market Behavior Rule 6 as no longer necessary, and rescind Appendix B of the Market Behavior Rules Order as no longer applicable. Contemporaneously herewith, the Commission is issuing a Final Rule in Docket No. RM06–13– 000 5 which is being made effective immediately upon publication in the Federal Register. The Market Behavior Rules Codification Order incorporates Rules 1, 3, 4, and 5 into our FPA regulations with no substantive change. In light of this action, Market Behavior Rules 1, 3, 4, and 5 will no longer be of any force or effect in market-based rate tariffs as of the date the Market Behavior Rules Codification Order is effective.6 I. Background 3. On November 17, 2003, acting pursuant to section 206 of the FPA, the 4 Prohibition of Energy Market Manipulation, Order No. 670, 71 FR 4244 (Jan. 26, 2006), FERC Stats. & Regs. ¶ 31,202, 114 FERC ¶ 61,047 (Jan. 19, 2006) (Order No. 670). 5 Compliance for Public Utility Market-Based Rate Authorization Holders, Docket No. RM06–13–000, issued February 16, 2006 (Market Behavior Rules Codification Order). 6 As provided for in the Market Behavior Rules Order, the Market Behavior Rules have been included in tariff filings by a number of marketbased rate sellers. As a result of the changes being made in this order and the contemporaneous Market Behavior Rules Codification Order, the Market Behavior Rules no longer will be part of seller’s market-based rate tariffs. It would be burdensome, however, to require sellers to make new tariff filings for the sole purpose of removing the Market Behavior Rules from their tariffs. Sellers need not do so, unless we direct otherwise in the future. In the absence of any such direction, at such time as sellers make any amendments to their market-based rate tariffs or seek continued authorization to sell at market-based rates (e.g., in their three-year update filings), sellers shall at that time remove the Market Behavior Rules from their tariffs. Nonetheless, Market Behavior Rules 2 and 6 will be of no force or effect in sellers’ tariffs as of the date this order is published in the Federal Register, and Market Behavior Rules 1, 3, 4, and 5 will be of no force and effect as of the effective date of the Market Behavior Rules Codification Order.
