April 1, 1998.
    Tenaska Frontier Partners, Ltd. (Tenaska), an affiliate of Montana 
Power Company and Illinois Power Company, filed an application for 
authorization to engage in wholesale power sales at market-based rates, 
and for certain waivers and authorizations. In particular, Tenaska 
requested that the Commission grant blanket approval under 18 CFR Part

by Tenaska. On March 30, 1998, the Commission issued an Order Granting 
Waiver and Conditionally Accepting For Filing Proposed Market-Based

    The Commission's March 30, 1998 Order granted the request for 
blanket approval under Part 34, subject to the conditions found in 
Ordering Paragraphs (D), (E), and (G).

Ordering Paragraph (D) above, Tenaska is hereby authorized to issue

object within the corporate purposes of Tenaska, compatible with the 
public interest, and reasonably necessary or appropriate for such 
purposes.
    (G) The Commission reserves the right to modify this order to 
require a further showing that neither public nor private interests
