the grounds of the proposed intervention, and the position of the petitioner in
the proceeding, so as fully and completely to advise the parties and the
commission as to the specific issues of fact or law to be raised or
controverted, by admitting, denying or otherwise answering, specifically and in
detail, each material allegation of fact or law asserted in the proceeding, and
citing by appropriate reference authority relied on.
