The following are only the Rules published in the Federal Register after the published date of Title 18.
For a complete list of all Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices view the Rulemaking tab.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) issues this Final Rule to amend its regulations to conform to the enacted Hydropower Regulatory Efficiency Act of 2013 (Hydropower Efficiency Act). Although the Commission has been complying with the Hydropower Efficiency Act, and made its compliance procedures available on its Web site, this Final Rule now formalizes the Commission's compliance procedures in its revised regulations on preliminary permits, small conduit hydroelectric facilities, and small hydroelectric power projects, and in a new subpart on qualifying conduit hydropower facilities. In addition, this Final Rule corrects grammatical and typographical errors. All revisions in this Final Rule are intended to be ministerial in nature.
The Commission is issuing this Final Rule to make minor changes to its regulations. This Final Rule amends requirements pertaining to the format and dimensions of maps and drawings submitted to the Commission by applicants and licensees in the Commission's hydropower program. Specifically, the amendments: remove the requirement that applicants and licensees submit copies of certain project maps and drawings in microfilm format on aperture cards; and change the minimum and maximum dimensions applicable to submitted maps and drawings. These amendments modernize the regulations to reflect technological advances and relieve burdens placed on applicants and licensees.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is correcting a final rule that appeared in the Federal Register of October 29, 2012 (77 FR 65463). In this final rule, the Commission is revising its rules and regulations relating to the filing of privileged material in keeping with the Commission's efforts to comply with the Paperwork Reduction Act, the Government Paperwork Elimination Act and the E-Government Act of 2002.
In this Final Rule, the Commission revises its rules and regulations relating to the filing of privileged material in keeping with the Commission's efforts to comply with the Paperwork Reduction Act, the Government Paperwork Elimination Act and the E-Government Act of 2002. First, the Commission establishes two categories of privileged material for filing purposes: Privileged material and critical energy infrastructure information. This revision will expand the ability to file electronically by permitting electronic filing of materials subject to Administrative Law Judge protective orders as appropriate. Second, the Commission revises its regulations to provide a single set of uniform procedures for filing privileged materials. These revisions continue the Commission's effort to reassess and streamline its regulations to ensure that they are efficient, effective and up to date. Also, the Commission revises Rule 213(d) of its Rules of Practice and Procedure, which establishes the timeline for filing answers to motions, to clarify that the standard fifteen day reply time will not apply to motions requesting an extension of time or a shortened time period for action. Instead, the Commission proposes to set the time for responding to such motions at five days, unless another time period is established by notice based on the circumstances.
The Commission is issuing this Final Rule to make minor changes to its regulations. This Final Rule revises a number of references that have become outdated for various reasons or contain typographical errors. Generally, these changes add or delete language in the current regulations by eliminating obsolete information, incorporating reference to updated electronic filing options, modernizing language, and correcting incorrect citations and clerical mistakes. The revisions are intended to be ministerial and/or informational in nature.
