Federal Energy Regulatory Commission

[Docket No. RM98-1-000]


Records Governing Off-the-Record Communications; Public Notice

    This constitutes notice, in accordance with 18 CFR 385.2201(b), of 
the receipt of prohibited and exempt off-the-record communications.
    Order No. 607 (64 FR 51222, September 22, 1999) requires Commission 
decisional employees, who make or receive a prohibited or exempt off-
the-record communication relevant to the merits of a contested 
proceeding, to deliver to the Secretary of the Commission, a copy of 
the communication, if written, or a summary of the substance of any 
oral communication.
    Prohibited communications are included in a public, non-decisional 
file associated with, but not a part of, the decisional record of the 
proceeding. Unless the Commission determines that the prohibited 
communication and any responses thereto should become a part of the 
decisional record, the prohibited off-the-record communication will not 
be considered by the Commission in reaching its decision. Parties to a 
proceeding may seek the opportunity to respond to any facts or 
contentions made in a prohibited off-the-record communication, and may 
request that the Commission place the prohibited communication and 
responses thereto in the decisional record. The Commission will grant 
such a request only when it determines that fairness so requires. Any 
person identified below as having made a prohibited off-the-record 
communication shall serve the document on all parties listed on the 
official service list for the applicable proceeding in accordance with 
Rule 2010, 18 CFR 385.2010.
    Exempt off-the-record communications are included in the decisional 
record of the proceeding, unless the communication was with a 
cooperating agency as described by 40 CFR 1501.6, made under 18 CFR 
385.2201(e)(1)(v).
    The following is a list of off-the-record communications recently 
received by the Secretary of the Commission. The communications listed 
are grouped by docket numbers in ascending order. These filings are 
available for electronic review at the Commission in the Public 
Reference Room or may be viewed on the Commission's Web site at http://www.ferc.gov using the eLibrary link. Enter the docket number, 
excluding the last three digits, in the docket number field to access
