The Commission believes it should conduct its business in public in all but the most unusual circumstances. The Commission has determined that, in light of the nature of this investigation and the ample opportunity given parties to present written arguments, including those relying on confidential information, it will be able to assess adequately all arguments raised by SEIA without resorting to the extraordinary measure of an in camera hearing. Accordingly, the Commission has determined that the public interest would be best served by a hearing that is entirely open to the public.
