CEC and comments supporting the California Petition, however, failed to provide sufficient information to demonstrate by a preponderance of the evidence that the proposed State standard is preferable or necessary when compared to alternative approaches. Since CEC has established only one of the two elements necessary to show an unusual and compelling State interest, DOE denies the waiver request. Third and finally, even if CEC had established by a preponderance of the evidence that California’s water interests are unusual and compelling, DOE is denying the waiver request because interested parties have established by a preponderance of the evidence that the California regulation would likely result in the unavailability of top-loading residential clothes washers in California. Therefore, DOE is prohibited from prescribing a rule that would grant the California Petition. VI. Approval of the Office of the Secretary The Secretary of Energy has approved publication of this notice. Issued in Washington, DC, on December 20, 2006. Alexander A.
