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 II.A.1, II.A.2, and IIA.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 took up the motion unopposed on February 14, found it reasonable, and granted the motion. This order further clarifies its February 14 order.

1. The prehearing conference is canceled, and the parties are no longer required to file a procedural schedule.
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.
