Public Utility Commission Adopts Revised Emergency Rule 2.500

The September 25, 2023, version of Commission Emergency Rule 2.500 reflects the provisions that are still in place after the permanent Commission Rule 2.000 went into effect on January 18, 2023. This revised emergency rule extends the amended filing and procedural requirements and alternative procedures to reduce or eliminate in-person contact between members of the public and Commission staff or other members of the public to reduce the risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus. A number of measures included in this revised emergency rule have proven beneficial to those who appear before and interact with the Commission. The Commission is undertaking a process of adopting policies and promulgating permanent rules, where appropriate, so that the remaining measures in this revised emergency rule can either be phased out or incorporated into permanent rules. The remaining provisions in this revised emergency rule will be superseded when permanent rules regarding those measures take effect.
