This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
On December 20, 1999, the Commission issued Order No. 2000  to advance the formation of Regional Transmission Organizations (RTOs). Order No. 2000 announced the initiation of a regional collaborative process  to aid in the formation of RTOs. To initiate the collaborative process, the Commission is organizing a series of regional workshops. The following five locations are designated for the Spring 2000 workshops and, as stated in order No. 2000, “* * * the selection of locations for initial workshops is not to indicate a preference for specific RTO boundaries, but to provide convenient workshop locations.”  The workshops are open to all interested parties and attendance at more than one workshop is permitted. The Commission expects that all transmission owners will attend at least one workshop.
The dates and locations for the Spring 2000 regional workshops are as follows:
March 1-2, 2000 in Cincinnati, OH
March 15-16, 2000 in Philadelphia, PA
March 23-24, 2000 in Las Vegas, NV
March 29-30, 2000 in Kansas City, MO
April 5-6, 2000 in Atlanta, GA
Agendas, procedural rules and specific meeting locations will be provided in advance of the workshops on the Commission's website (http://www.ferc.fed.us/). The Commission contact person for these workshops is James Apperson, (202) 219-2962.Start Signature
