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 contains 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's staff is consulting with the New York State Historic Preservation Officer (New York SHPO) and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (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 470f), 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 No. 7387-019.
The programmatic agreement, when executed by the Commission, and the New York SHPO would satisfy the Commission's section 106 responsibilities for all individual undertakings carried out in accordance with the license until the license expires or is terminated (36 CFR 800.13[e]). The Commission's responsibilities pursuant to section 106 for the Piercefield Hydroelectric Project would be fulfilled through the programmatic agreement, which the Commission proposes to draft in consultation with the parties identified in the restricted service list notice issued September 10, 2004 and the parties listed below. The executed programmatic agreement would be incorporated into any Order issuing a license.
For purposes of commenting on the programmatic agreement, we propose to add the following persons to the restricted service list for the aforementioned project to represent the interests of the Department of the Interior:
Dr. James Kardatzke, U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs, 711 Stewarts Ferry Pike, Nashville, TN 37214.
Kimberly A. Owens, U.S. Department of the Interior, Office of Solicitor, 1849 C St. NW., M.S. 6456, Washington DC 20240.
Any person on the official service list for the above-captioned proceeding may request inclusion on the restricted service list, or may request that a restricted service list not be established, by filing a motion to that effect within 15 days of this notice date. In a request for inclusion, please identify the reason(s) why there is an interest to be included. If no such motions are filed, the restricted service list will be effective at the end of the 15 day period. Otherwise, a further notice will be issued ruling on any motion or motions filed within the 15 day period.
An original and 8 copies of any such motion must be filed with Magalie Salas, the Secretary of the Commission (888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426) and must be served on each person whose name appears on the official service list. The first page of the motion should clearly show the project number, P-7387-019. Your response may be filed electronically via the Internet in lieu of paper. See 18 CFR 385.2001(a)(1)(iii) and the instructions on the Commission's Web site (http://www.ferc.gov) under the “e-Filing” link. The Commission strongly encourages electronic filings.
