SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act (PURPA), enacted November 8, 1978, amended the Federal Power Act (the Act) and directed the Commission to make comprehensive biennial reviews of certain matters related to automatic adjustment clauses in wholesale rate schedules used by public utilities subject to the Commission’s jurisdiction. Specifically, the Commission is required to examine whether the clauses effectively provide the incentives for efficient use of resources and also whether the clauses reflect only those costs that are either ‘‘subject to periodic fluctuations’’ or ‘‘not susceptible to precise determinations’’ in rate cases prior to the time the costs are incurred. The Commission is also required to review the practices of each public utility under automatic adjustment clauses ‘‘to insure efficient use of resources under such clauses.’’ 1 In response to the PURPA directive, the Commission (in Docket No. IN79–6) established an investigation and began in 1982, to collect every other year, the FERC–580 ‘‘Interrogatory on Fuel and Energy Purchase Practices.’’ (OMB No. 1902– 0137). In conjunction with the Paperwork Reduction Act information collection three-year renewal cycle (as administered by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB)), the Commission proposes to modify the questions in the interrogatory. There are several proposed changes to this reporting cycle and we seek comment on those changes. First, as it has been several years since the Commission collected information on automatic adjustment clauses other than fueladjustment clauses, therefore we propose in this cycle, to include 1 The review requirement is set forth in two paragraphs of Section 208 of PURPA, 49 Stat.851; 16 U.S.C. 824d E:\FR\FM\14DEN1.SGM 14DEN1
