If your publication, radio or television station offers a calendar of community events, you may want to include news of the following workshop.

The California Energy Commission staff will conduct a data request and issue resolution workshop for the proposed Blythe Energy Transmission Line Amendment on:

10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
California Energy Commission
Hearing Room B
1516 Ninth Street
Sacramento, California
(Wheelchair Accessible)

This workshop will provide the staffs of the Energy Commission, the Western Area Power Administration, and the Bureau of Land Management an opportunity to address comments and questions from the public, the applicant, intervenors, and other interested parties. The focus will be on the recent data requests issued by the Energy Commission staff and the Western Area Power Administration.
