ADMINISTRATIVE LAW JUDGE'S RULING
AND NOTICE OF PREHEARING CONFERENCE
Today's ruling provides notice of a May 10, 2006 prehearing conference (PHC), establishes the due date for pre-PHC comments on the scope, schedule and need for evidentiary hearings, and addresses other procedural matters.
A PHC will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, May 10, 2006, at the Commission Hearing Room, 505 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco, California.
The purpose of the PHC will be to address scoping issues, scheduling and other procedural matters, including the need for evidentiary hearings. Pre-PHC comments addressing these issues are due by May 5, 2006. In preparing their comments on the scope of this rulemaking, interested parties should review the Preliminary Scoping Memo contained in the Order Instituting Rulemaking (OIR) and the Attachment to this ruling.1 Interested parties should also comment on the proposed schedule for Phase 1 and prioritization of issues that I have outlined below, and indicate if there are other scheduling considerations (e.g., hearings in other proceedings) that should be considered in developing a final schedule.
At the PHC, I will also address the categorization of this proceeding. As noticed in the OIR, any person who objects to the preliminary categorization of this proceeding as quasi-legislative shall raise such objection no later than 10 calendar days from the date the OIR was issued.2
