All written comments shall reference the applicable page and paragraph of the PMPD. Recommendations for changes to the PMPD shall appear in strikeout and underline format followed by a brief justification for the proposed change.

At the Committee Conference, the formal parties may summarize their principal comments on the PMPD. Parties may also reflect upon the written comments of other parties filed on June 13th.

For the convenience of the public, the afternoon conference will be followed by an evening session beginning at 7 p.m. at the same location.
