Start Preamble December 19, 2001.

Take notice that on December 18, 2001, Dynegy Power Marketing, Inc., Mirant Americas Energy Marketing, LP, Mirant California, LLC, and Williams Energy Marketing & Trading Company (Complainants) submitted a complaint against the California Independent System Operator Corporation (CAISO) alleging that the CAISO is acting unlawfully by implementing changes to its operating procedures related to Intra-Zonal Congestion Management and implementing market rule modifications for importers without first seeking authorization under section 205 of the Federal Power Act. Complainants further allege that certain operating procedures violate the terms of the Commission-approved reliability must-run contracts.

Accordingly, Complainants request that the Commission issue an immediate order directing the CAISO to operate under its prior operating procedures until such time as the CAISO has received all Commission authorizations to make these changes. Complainants also request that Commission Staff hold a technical conference to develop a 60-minute market.

Copies of this filing were served upon the CAISO and other interested parties.

Any person desiring to be heard or to protest this filing should file a motion to intervene or protest with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426, in accordance with rules 211 and 214 of the Commission's rules of practice and procedure (18 CFR 385.211 and 385.214).
