On March 28, 2000, the Commission issued an “Order Accepting for Filing and Suspending Proposed Rates, Requiring Compliance Filing, Accepting Revisions to Open Access Tariff and Establishing Hearing Procedures” in the above-docketed proceeding (March 28 Order). Requests for Rehearing were due to be filed on or before April 27, 2000. On April 28, 2000, Wisconsin Energy Corporation Operating Companies (Wisconsin Energy) filed a Request for Rehearing.[1]

Section 313(a) of the Federal Power Act [2] requires an aggrieved party to file a request for rehearing within thirty days after the issuance of the Commission's order. Because the 30-day deadline for requesting rehearing is statutorily based, it cannot be extended and Wisconsin Energy's request for rehearing must be rejected as untimely.

Standard Paragraphs

All such motions or protests should be filed on or before the comment date. Protests will be considered by the Commission in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but will not serve to make protestants parties to the proceeding. Any person wishing to become a party must file a motion to intervene. Copies of these filings are on file with the Commission and are available for public inspection.
