SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Commission published in the Federal Register on December 23, 2013 (78 FR 77354), an interim rule with a request for comments. In the interim rule, the Commission amended its procedural rules to permit parties to file and serve documents electronically. The Commission is using a new electronic case management system (e-CMS) that will allow parties to file documents electronically with the Commission through a portal which may be accessed on the Commission's Web site (www.fmshrc.gov). The Commission expects that the e-CMS will become available for electronic filing in the near future and encourages parties to check the Commission's Web site for more specific information.

The Commission is extending the comment period on the interim rule through July 31, 2014, so that parties may include in their comments any experiences they have had using the e-CMS.
