Universal Citation: 18 AK Admin Code 18 AAC 15.225

Current through December 14, 2023

(a) A person who wants to intervene in proceedings granted by the commissioner may serve upon the administrative law judge a request to intervene that contains the information and meets the requirements specified in 18 AAC 15.200, not later than 15 days after publication of notice or mailing of notice under 18 AAC 15.220(d), whichever occurs last. A person requesting to intervene must serve a copy of the request to intervene on each party. A person requesting to intervene may not raise new contested issues beyond those contained in the request for hearing granted by the commissioner under 18 AAC 15.220(c). An existing party may submit an objection to a request to intervene not later than seven days after service of the request.

(b) Each requester, the permit applicant or permittee, and the division director are automatically parties to the proceeding and need not file requests for intervention.

(c) The administrative law judge will grant or deny the request to intervene not later than 10 days after the expiration of the deadline to object. The administrative law judge will grant the intervention request if the administrative Jaw judge finds that the potential intervenor meets the standing requirements of 18 AAC 15.200 and the potential intervenor's interests are not adequately represented in the adjudication.

(d) If more than one hearing request concerning a department decision, including requests to intervene, is granted, all granted requests will be automatically joined in a single proceeding.
