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 staff is consulting with the Alabama and Georgia State Historic Preservation Officer (hereinafter, SHPOs) 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 470 f), to prepare and execute a programmatic agreement for managing properties included in, or eligible for inclusion in, the National Register of Historic Places at Project Nos. 2146, 82, and 618.
The programmatic agreement, when executed by the Commission, the SHPOs, and the Council, would satisfy the Commission's Section 106 responsibilities for all individual undertakings carried out in accordance with the licenses until the licenses expire or are terminated (36 CFR 800.13[e]). The Commission's responsibilities pursuant to Section 106 for the above projects 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 Orders issuing licenses.
Alabama Power Company, as licensee for Project Nos. 2146, 82, and 618, and the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, Jena Band of Choctaw Indians, Chickasaw Nation, Poarch Band of Creek Indians, and the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs have expressed an interest in this preceding and are invited to participate in consultations to develop the programmatic agreement.
