Loveland Area Projects-Western Area Colorado Missouri Balancing Authority-Rate Order No. WAPA 118
The Western Area Power Administration (Western) is proposing an adjustment for its Regulation and Frequency Response Service (Regulation) rate. The current rate, Rate Schedule No. L-AS3, will expire February 28, 2009. Western is undertaking this rate adjustment in response to anticipated load and resource growth and the corresponding impact on the Western Area Colorado Missouri (WACM) Balancing Authority (WACM Balancing Authority). Prior to April 1, 2005, the WACM Balancing Authority was known as the WACM Control Area. This proposed rate adjustment will ensure that users of Regulation service within the WACM Balancing Authority are appropriately assessed for their Regulation usage and that sufficient revenue is collected to cover provision of the service. Publication of this Federal Register notice begins the formal process for the proposed rate adjustment.
Electronic Filing of the Application for Authorization for the Issuance of Securities or the Assumption of Liabilities
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) is amending its regulations to provide for electronic filing of Applications for Authorization for the Issuance of Securities or the Assumption of Liabilities. The Commission is making these changes as part of its effort to modernize its reporting and filing requirements and to eliminate unnecessary filing burdens for those entities that file applications or reports with the Commission pursuant to 18 CFR part 34. The proposed revisions will reduce the Commission's and the respondent's costs by allowing the submission of financial information in electronic format in lieu of the present hard copy format; the type of financial data that jurisdictional entities submit in this application is already routinely stored in electronic format, making hard copy filing of such information burdensome. In this Final Rule the Commission continues to move toward electronic filing, as the Government Paperwork Elimination Act mandates. The modifications in this Final Rule are the result of a review conducted by the Commission's Information Assessment Team (FIAT), identifying the Commission's current information collections, evaluating their original purposes and current uses, and proposing ways to reduce the reporting burden on industry through the elimination, reduction, streamlining or reformatting of current collections.
