Rule 2010 of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's (Commission) Rules of Practice and Procedure provides that, to eliminate unnecessary expense or improve administrative efficiency, the Secretary may establish a restricted service list for a particular phase or issue in a proceeding. The restricted service list should contain the names of persons on the service list who, in the judgment of the decisional authority establishing the list, are active participants with respect to the phase or issue in the proceeding for which the list is established.
The Commission is consulting with the Maine State Historic Preservation Officer (hereinafter, SHPO) and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (hereinafter, Council) pursuant to the Council's regulations, 36 CFR part 800, implementing Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, as amended, (16 U.S.C. Section 470f), to prepare a programmatic agreement for managing properties included in, or eligible for inclusion in, the National Register of Historic Places at the Storage Project (FERC No. P-2634).
The programmatic agreement, when executed by the Commission, the SHPO, and the Council, would satisfy the Commission's Section 106 Start Printed Page 49664responsibilities for all individual undertakings carried out in accordance with the license until the license expires or is terminated (36 CFR 800.14). The Commission's responsibilities pursuant to Section 106 for the above project would be fulfilled through the programmatic agreement, which the Commission proposes to draft in consultation with certain parties listed below. The executed programmatic agreement would be incorporated into any Order issuing a license.
Great Northern Paper, Inc. as prospective licensee for Project No. P-2634, and the Passamaquoddy Indian Tribe, Penobscot Indian Nation, and U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs have interest in this proceeding are invited to participate in consultations to develop the programmatic agreement and to sign as a concurring party to the programmatic agreement.
