COMMISSION ORDER DENYING WEM'S
PETITION FOR REVIEW
On June 20, 2002, on the day of the evidentiary hearing, Ms. Barbara George, speaking on behalf of Woman's Energy Matters (WEM), petitioned to intervene in the Russell City Energy Center Application for Certification (AFC) proceeding. Ms. George also requested a two-month extension for Women's Energy Matters to prepare its testimony and present such testimony at an evidentiary hearing.
After hearing Ms. George's argument on behalf of the intervention of WEM, the Committee ruled that by failing to petition until the day of evidentiary hearings, Ms. George's petition was not timely. The Presiding Member further determined that she failed to make a showing of good cause for the untimely filing. Accordingly, the Committee denied her petition to intervene.
On July 10, 2002, WEM filed a timely appeal for reconsideration of the Committee's June 20, 2002 Order denying WEM's Petition to Intervene. Included with her appeal were a Memorandum of Points and Authorities (Memorandum), and a Declaration of Barbara George (Declaration).
The Committee, on July 23, 2002, denied WEM's Petition for Reconsideration, and scheduled the matter for consideration by the full Commission at the August 14, 2002, Business Meeting.
After hearing argument on the matter, the Commission hereby DENIES the Petition for Reconsideration filed by WEM.
It is so Ordered.
Dated August 14, 2002, at Sacramento, California.
