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.
Commission staff is consulting with the Oklahoma State Historic Preservation Officer (Oklahoma 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. 470 f), to prepare and execute a programmatic agreement (PA) for managing properties included in, or eligible for inclusion in, the National Register of Historic Places at the Pine Creek Lake Dam Hydroelectric Project No. 12646 (Pine Creek Project).
The PA, when executed by the Commission and the Oklahoma 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 Pine Creek Project would be fulfilled through the PA, which Commission staff proposes to draft in consultation with the parties listed below. The executed PA would be incorporated into any order issuing a license for the project.
The City of Broken Bow, Oklahoma, as the license applicant for the Pine Creek Project, is invited to participate in consultations to develop the PA and to sign as a concurring party to the PA.
For purposes of commenting on the PA, we propose to restrict the service Start Printed Page 70636list for the aforementioned project as follows:
