The parties respectfully request the Commission to issue a final Declaratory Order prior to the July 31, 2000 closing date of the Open Season for the 6-19-98 FTS254 capacity now posted on Great Lakes' Electronic Bulletin Board, so that neither Ocean nor any bidder may be harmed by the outcome of these proceedings.
