Regulation No. 57-315 (# 3161)

 On February 6, 2017, the Independent Regulatory Review Commission (Commission) received this proposed regulation from the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC). This rulemaking amends 52 Pa. Code Chapter 56. The proposed regulation was published in the February 18, 2017 Pennsylvania Bulletin with a public comment period ending on April 18, 2017. The final-form regulation was submitted to the Commission on March 18, 2019.

 This final-form regulation implements amendments made to the Public Utility Code by Act 155 of 2014.

 We have determined this regulation is consistent with the statutory authority of the PUC (66 Pa.C.S. §§ 501—504 and 1401—1418) 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.
