SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On April 15, 2008, the Edison Electric Institute (EEI) and the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) filed a joint motion for an extension of the date for filing comments on the Commission's Notice of Proposed Rulemaking issued March 20, 2008, in the above-referenced proceeding. Mandatory Reliability Standard for Nuclear Plant Interface Coordination, 122 FERC ¶ 61,254 (March 20, 2008) (NOPR). In support of this request, the motion states that EEI and NEI members, who will be required to comply with the Reliability Standard proposed in the Commission's NOPR, represent a broad spectrum of the nation's shareholder-owned electric companies, international affiliates and all levels of the commercial nuclear energy industry. EEI and NEI state that because of the complex nature of the issues addressed in the NOPR and the importance of submitting a well-developed response, additional time is needed to file comments on the Commission's proposed rulemaking.

Upon consideration, notice is hereby given that an extension of time for filing comments on the Commission's NOPR Start Printed Page 21860is granted to and including May 13, 2008.
