i. FERC Contact: Regina Saizan, (202) 502-8765.

j. Deadline for Filing Comments and or Motions: June 28, 2004.

All documents (original and eight copies) should be filed with: Magalie R. Salas, Secretary, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426. Comments, protests, and interventions may be filed electronically via the Start Printed Page 30895Internet in lieu of paper; see 18 CFR 385.2001(a)(1)(iii) and the instructions on the Commission's Web site under the “e-Filing” link. The Commission strongly encourages electronic filings. Please include the project number (P-2281-006) on any comments or motions filed.

The Commission's rules of practice and procedure require all interveners filing a document with the Commission to serve a copy of that document on each person in the official service list for the project. Further, if an intervener files comments or documents with the Commission relating to the merits of an issue that may affect the responsibilities of a particular resource agency, they must also serve a copy of the document on that resource agency.

k. Description of Amendment: PG&E requests that the license expiration date be accelerated from July 1, 2010, to March 31, 2009. PG&E states that the approval to accelerate the expiration date would provide it the opportunity to relicense the Woodleaf-Palermo Transmission Line Project with the Sly Creek Transmission Line Project No. 4851. Both transmission projects serve as primary transmission lines for the South Feather Hydroelectric Project No. 2088. The licenses for Project Nos. 2088 and 4851 expire on March 31, 2009. PG&E states that acceleration of the expiration date for the Woodleaf-Palermo Transmission Line Project to March 31, 2009, provides for the coordinated relicensing of the three projects and is expected to be more efficient for the agencies and the public participating in the relicensing process.
