SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the April 27, 2011, Federal Register Notice (FRN) (76 FR 23583), Western announced that in marketing the BCP as of October 1, 2017, it will apply the Program’s Power Marketing Initiative (PMI) and that all BCP electric service contracts resulting from this marketing effort shall have a term of thirty (30) years commencing October 1, 2017.

Subsequently, on May 24, 2011 (76 FR 30147), Western announced an extension of the effective date of these decisions to December 31, 2011. In the April 27, 2011, FRN, Western also made proposals and sought comments on the amount of marketable contingent capacity and firm energy to be extended to existing contractors, the size of the resource pool to be created, and excess energy provisions.

P.O. Box 6457, Phoenix, AZ 85005, telephone (602) 605-2675, email 
Post2017BCP@wapa.gov. Information regarding Western's BCP Post-2017

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the April 27, 2011, Federal Register 
Notice (FRN) (76 FR 23583), Western announced that in marketing the BCP 
as of October 1, 2017, it will apply the Program's Power Marketing 
Initiative (PMI) and that all BCP electric service contracts resulting 
from this marketing effort shall have a term of thirty (30) years 
commencing October 1, 2017. The effective date of these decisions was 
designated as May 27, 2011. Subsequently, on May 24, 2011 (76 FR 
30147), Western announced an extension of the effective date of these 
decisions to December 31, 2011.
    In the April 27, 2011, FRN, Western also made proposals and sought 
comments on the amount of marketable contingent capacity and firm 
energy to be extended to existing contractors, the size of the resource 
pool to be created, and excess energy provisions.
    On December 21, 2011 the Hoover Power Allocation Act of 2011, 
Public Law 112-72, was enacted into law. The Act directs Western to 
market contingent capacity and firm energy for delivery to existing 
contractors in amounts specified in the Act. Contracts shall have a 
fifty (50) year term, commencing October 1, 2017. The Act also directs 
Western to create a resource pool of contingent capacity and firm 
energy to be offered to new allottees. Western will implement these 
directives in subsequent FRNs. Since the Act supersedes Western's 
decisions and proposals pertaining to the BCP Post-2017 marketing 
effort, Western withdraws its decisions and proposals as set forth in 
its April 27, 2011 FRN, without further public procedure including 
further response to comments received related to the proposals.
