ORDER GRANTING REQUEST TO CANCEL PREHEARING

CONFERENCE AND PROCEDURAL SCHEDULE FILING DATE

 

Issue Date:  February 14, 2013                           Effective Date:  February 14, 2013

 

 

On February 6, 2013[1], the Commission set a prehearing conference for February 19.  On February 13, Staff, Laclede Gas Company (“Laclede”) and the Office of the Public Counsel (“OPC”) filed a Request to Cancel Prehearing Conference and Procedural Filing Date.

The parties explain that it is premature to convene a prehearing conference due to pending Laclede cases for prior ACA periods.  This case cannot be properly concluded until those prior cases are concluded, according to the parties.

The parties further state that Laclede agreed with Staff’s recommendations under the heading Natural Gas Supply Request for Proposal (RFP) Process, Items 1, 2 and 3 (See Sections !!.A.1, II.A.2, and WWA.3 of Staff’s Recommendation and Laclede’s Response).  Laclede states that it commits to implement these three Staff recommenda­tions prior to its RFP process in 2013 for gas supply for the 2013-2014 period. 

The Commission takes up the motion unopposed, finds it reasonable, and will grant it.

 

THE COMMISSION ORDERS THAT:

1.               The prehearing conference is canceled.

2.               Laclede Gas Company shall implement the three Staff recommendations listed above prior to its RFP process in 2013 for gas supply for the 2013-2014 period. 

3.               This order shall become effective immediately upon issuance.
