Energy Resources
Conservation and Development Commission

The Committee for the above-captioned proceeding held a Committee Conference on May 25, 1999, to receive information on the status of the proceeding and to hear the views of the parties regarding the appropriate scope of project analysis for the purposes of complying with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). After hearing from the parties and reviewing their respective positions, the Committee has determined that the Joint Energy Commission/Sunrise Blueprint, filed on May 21, 1999, is adopted as the guiding document for the environmental analysis of the Sunrise Cogeneration and Power Project.

If Staff wishes to do so, Staff is directed to file the information with Status Report #3.

The document containing Status Report #3 and any additional information, must be received at the Commission's Docket Unit no later than noon on Friday, June 18, 1999. Copies must also be served on all other parties.
