The protest and comments did not address the waiver request described in the Commission’s public notice. No other protests or comments were received. Since there were no objections to GRDA’s waiver request to reduce the comment period from 60 to 30 days as described above, the waiver is approved and comments on GRDA’s draft amendment application must be submitted to GRDA within the requested 30-day period (due by April 14, 2016). Note that the Modoc Tribe’s concerns and comments contained in its March 31, 2016 letter, have been filed with the Commission and will be considered in the Commission’s review of any final amendment application GRDA files with the Commission.
