I. BACKGROUND

On September 4, 2001, Intervenor Californians for Renewable Energy (CARE) filed a "Motion Requesting Hearing on the Revised Presiding Member's Proposed Decision be relocated to San Jose, California to Accommodate a Disabled Individual, Mr. Oliver Kraemer" (Motion). CARE, a party to these proceedings, filed the Motion on behalf of Mr. Kraemer, who is not a party. Mr. Kraemer has, however, commented at various public hearings.

CARE alleges that Mr. Kraemer's limitations prevent him from attending the September 12, 2001 Commission Business Meeting in Sacramento. Mr. Kraemer's interest in the case apparently involves a dispute concerning the transfer of property to the Applicant or Applicant's agents.

II. RULING

The Motion is denied. There is simply no requirement nor compelling reason that the Commission conduct its September 12th meeting in another location. Parties and members of the public unable to attend may submit written comments as previously instructed or may request the Public Adviser arrange to participate by teleconference. Those interested in the latter option should contact the Public Adviser's Office at (916) 654-4489 or, toll free, at (800) 822-6228, no later than Friday, September 7th, 2001.
