Take notice that on January 15, 2002, the California Power Exchange Corporation (PX) filed a Petition for Declaratory Order. The Petition requests that the Commission issue a declaratory order stating that it is in the public interest for the successor of the PX to remain an independent entity not controlled by any segment of electric industry participants.
The PX requests that the Commission issue the declaratory order no later than January 31, 2002 for the purpose of providing guidance to the Bankruptcy Court, which is holding a hearing on February 1, 2002 to consider a Disclosure Statement and Reorganization Plan that would permit “seller-side” participants of the PX to acquire substantial control of the successor to the PX. Accordingly, the PX requests a shortened response time, sufficient to permit the Commission to issue its declaratory order by January 31, 2002.
