Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission—
Rules of Practice and Procedure;
Regulation No. 57-290 (#2984)

 On February 22, 2013, the Independent Regulatory Review Commission (Commission) received this proposed regulation from the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC). This rulemaking amends 52 Pa. Code Chapters 1 and 5. The proposed regulation was published in the March 9, 2013 Pennsylvania Bulletin with a 30-day public comment period. The final-form regulation was submitted to the Commission on June 18, 2013.

 This regulation simplifies existing practices and procedures before the PUC.

 We have determined this regulation is consistent with the statutory authority of the PUC (66 Pa.C.S. § 501) and the intention of the General Assembly. Having considered all of the other criteria of the Regulatory Review Act, we find promulgation of this regulation is in the public interest.

By Order of the Commission:

 This regulation is approved.
