(Filed December 15, 2005)
ADMINISTRATIVE LAW JUDGE'S RULING REGARDING
MOTIONS TO INTERVENE, NOTICES OF INTENT TO CLAIM INTERVENOR COMPENSATION, REVISED PHASE 1 SCHEDULE, ADVISORY STAFF WORKSHOP REPORT, AND POST-WORKSHOP COMMENTS
Motions to intervene in this proceeding have been filed by the California Department of Water Resources State Water Project (CDWR-SWP),1 Edison Mission Energy (EME), J. Aron & Company (J. Aron), Good Company Associates on behalf of TAS (Good Company/TAS), Energy Users Forum (EUF), and the California Electricity Oversight Board (CEOB). Each moving party has shown good cause for its request to intervene, and each request will be granted. I note that Good Company/TAS, which manufactures generation equipment, may seek to raise issues that were not identified in the Assigned Commissioner's Scoping Memo dated March 1, 2006 (Scoping Memo). Good Company/TAS is placed on notice that the Scoping Memo limits the issues that may be heard in Phase 1 and in Phase 2 of this proceeding.
1 Pursuant to the Commission's December 15, 2005 order instituting this rulemaking (OIR), the established procedure for parties to enter appearances (other than filing a motion to intervene) was to appear at the first prehearing conference. (OIR, Ordering Paragraph 5.) CDWR-SWP did so on February 3, 2006. Therefore, CDWR-SWP became a party by virtue of its appearance at the prehearing conference.
