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.
A series of commissioner-led workshops will be held October 15 through October 19, 2001, beginning at 10 a.m., in the Commission meeting room at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC.
The purpose of the workshops is to discuss core issues related to the development of efficient electric markets in an era where electric transmission systems will be operated by Regional Transmission Organizations. These issues include, but are not limited to, necessary market information, congestion management, cost recovery, market monitoring, transmission planning, business and reliability standards, the nature of transmission rights, and federal/state cooperation. The workshops will begin the process of developing a rulemaking on the market design and structure to be implemented through a pro forma tariff applicable to all public utilities and RTOs.
The workshops are open for the public to attend. There will be ample opportunity for public input in the rulemaking process, subsequent to the workshops. The Commission is inviting selected panelists on these topics to participate in these workshops; it is not at this time entertaining requests to make presentations. Additional details about the workshops will be provided in a subsequent notice, and will be posted on the Commission's web site under RTO Activities.Start Signature
