This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
On February 25, 2004, PacifiCorp filed an application to relicense its 169-MW Klamath Hydroelectric Project. In November 2007, Commission staff issued its final Environmental Impact Statement, in which it analyzed a number of alternatives for relicensing the project. To date, neither the states of Oregon nor California have acted on PacifiCorp's requests for certification under section 401 of the Clean Water Act, precluding Commission action on the license application.
On November 24, 2008, PacifiCorp filed an Agreement in Principle, executed among PacifiCorp; the U.S. Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, and the Interior; and the States of California and Oregon, for the continued operation and potential future removal of Klamath Project dams.
The Agreement in Principle is complex and may have a significant effect on the analysis of PacifiCorp's relicense application. The compatibility of the Agreement with the licensing process and the appropriate procedures for the continued processing of the application will be discussed. Commission staff will hold two public meetings to obtain public comment on these matters. The meetings will be held as follows.

Time: 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. (PST).
