(updated on May 14, 2003)
On March 13, 2003, BPA published a Federal Register Notice summarizing BPA's Initial Proposal for the proposed safety-net cost recovery adjustment clause: public hearing, and opportunity for public review and comment. Please note that no final decisions regarding the SN CRAC have yet been made. BPA released its Initial Proposal on March 31, 2003, a field hearing was held on April 16th, and the public comment period closed on May 1, 2003.
All BPA documentation associated with the Initial Proposal (including studies, testimony, and witness qualifications) will be acessible through this page as they become available.
