3. The Empire District Electric Company

Take notice that on November 18, 2002, The Empire District Electric Company (Empire) submitted a revised attachment C to its proposal to cancel parts of its Open Access Transmission Tariff (OATT) and to substitute an Ancillary Services Form of Agreement, which was filed on November 6, 2002.
