41740 SERVICE DATE – JULY 6, 2011
SURFACE TRANSPORTATION BOARD
Docket No. NOR 42127
INTERMOUNTAIN POWER AGENCY
UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD COMPANY
Decided: July 5, 2011
This decision modifies the procedural schedule in this proceeding.
The Board established a procedural schedule for this proceeding in a decision served on January 27, 2011. By a decision served on May 10, 2011, the Board modified that schedule to add a deadline for a joint submission of operating characteristics, a filing typically required in SAC rate proceedings.
On June 24, 2011, IPA filed a motion to extend the procedural schedule, which IPA states is unopposed by UP. IPA explains that it recently concluded negotiations on a new coal supply arrangement, that it is in the final stages of negotiations for an additional new coal supply arrangement, and that it needs additional time to incorporate this, and other new information, into the stand-alone railroad analysis it will be presenting. IPA also states that the discovery process has taken longer than anticipated despite the diligent, good faith efforts of both parties. Therefore, IPA requests the following revised procedural schedule, which would extend the outstanding deadlines in this proceeding by approximately four weeks:
Complainant Files Opening Evidence August 10, 2011
Defendant Files Reply Evidence November 10, 2011
Complainant Files Rebuttal Evidence January 3, 2012
Parties File Closing Briefs February 15, 2012
IPA’s unopposed motion will be granted. The Board will modify the procedural schedule as described above.
It is ordered:
1. IPA’s unopposed motion to modify the procedural schedule is granted.
2. The procedural schedule in this proceeding is revised as described above.
3. This decision is effective on its service date.
By the Board, Joseph H. Dettmar, Acting Director, Office of Proceedings.
