REVISED COMMISSION RULE 515-2-1-.04
Applications, Petitions, Complaints and Filings.
Procedural Requirements Relating Thereto. Amended.
(3) On all applications, petitions and complaints, and in any instance in which the Commission initiates an action, notice shall be given to the persons or corporations interested in or affected by said action at least thirty (30) days before any hearing that may be scheduled; provided, however, that the notification provisions of this subpart shall not apply to any emergency action that the Commission may need to take in the interest of safeguarding the public health, safety and welfare or any action in which the parties do not object to proceeding on a more expedited basis.
(4) In addition to filing an original document with the Commission, a party also shall file an appropriate number of copies. The exact number of copies that a party must file shall be determined by the type of document, as specified on the Official Filing Schedule adopted by the Commission. Once adopted, this schedule may be modified from time to time by order of the Commission.
Any party to a contested matter that lacks the technical ability to make an electronic filing with the Commission as required by (4)(a) of this rule may file a petition seeking an exemption from meeting this requirement. Any such petition that may be made pursuant to this rule shall conform with all of the filing requirements of this rule, except that it need not be accompanied by an electronic version of the petition filed. The decision whether to grant such a petition shall be made on a case-by-case basis by the Chairman of the Commission in accordance with Rule 515-1-1-.01.
(5.) Each electric, natural gas, telephone, telegraph and radio common carrier utility company must also file with the Commission concurrently with their general rate increase applications and other exhibits two (2) copies of Minimum Filing Requirements (MFRs). The MFRs shall be in format and content as prescribed by the Commission for each different type utility, and as contained in form-numbered MFR-books as described below in this paragraph. Each utility company desiring an exemption and/or a deviation from the prescribed filing must notify the Commission and receive approval of such exemptions and/or deviations from the Commission prior to the filing of its next application for a general rate increase after this Rule shall have been issued. Blank schedules of the MFRs to be completed by the utility companies will be furnished by the Commission to the companies upon their written request.
