AAIs Joins Electric Co-ops and Public Power in Rehearing Request in New York Transco LLC, et al

The AAI joined the New York Association of Public Power, National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, and American Public Power Association today in asking the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to reconsider an order. FERC’s order in New York Transco LLC, et al (FERC Docket No. EC15-45-000) found that the Commission had no jurisdiction under the Federal Power Act (S. 203) to review a transaction involving a joint venture of transmission assets. The request for rehearing highlights the basis for and importance of FERC’s jurisdiction in the important area of interstate commerce.
