NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
The Delaware Board of Geologists in accordance with 24 Del.C. §3606 has proposed amendments to Rule 2.0 Procedures for Licensure and Rule 6.0 Continuing Education of its rules and regulations. The proposed amendments to subsection 188.8.131.52 clarify that an applicant for licensure by reciprocity must have an active license in the jurisdiction from which the applicant is applying and must have actually worked for at least 2 years in the jurisdiction from which they are applying to meet the statutory requirements for licensure. The first proposed amendment to Rule 6.0 deletes language in subsection 6.1 that provided for a waiver of continuing education for the first renewal period after the continuing education requirements were enacted because it is no longer applicable. Finally, the Board is proposing to amend Rule 6.0 by adding new subsections 6.11 through 6.15 clarifying the continuing education audit process and the process for hearings for non-compliance, including the imposition of sanctions.
A public hearing will be held on October 9, 2009 at 10:15 a.m. in the second floor conference room B of the Cannon Building, 861 Silver Lake Boulevard, Dover, Delaware where members of the public can offer comments. Anyone wishing to receive a copy of the proposed rules and regulations may obtain a copy from the Delaware Board of Geologists, 861 Silver Lake Blvd, Cannon Building, Suite 203, Dover, DE 19904. Persons wishing to submit written comments may forward these to the Board at the above address. The final date to receive written comments will be at the public hearing.
The Board will consider promulgating the proposed regulations at its regularly scheduled meeting following the public hearing.
Public Service Commission
Notice of Comment Period On Proposed Revised Regulations Concerning the Adoption of an “Integrated Resource Planning Regulation”
To: All Standard Offer Service Retail Customers Of Delmarva Power & Light Company And Other
In 2006, the General Assembly and Governor enacted the “Electric Utility Retail Customer Supply Act,” 75 Del. Laws. Ch. 242 § 6 (Apr. 6, 2006) (the “Act”). The Act required Delmarva Power & Light Company (“DP&L”) to submit an Integrated Resource Plan (“IRP”) with the Public Service Commission (the “Commission”), the Controller General, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, and the State Energy Office (collectively the “State Agencies”). The IRP is a document that reflects the end result of an integrated resource planning process by DP&L during which it has systematically evaluated all actions or options for procuring, creating, or load-managing electric supply to meet, at minimal cost, the needs of its Standard Offer Service (“SOS”) retail customers over a ten-year planning period. DP&L filed its initial IRP with the State Agencies on December 1, 2006.
In order to comply with the new legislation, on December 4, 2007, the Commission promulgated regulations intended to govern DP&L’s IRP process pursuant to the Act. The Proposed Regulations and a notice regarding the Proposed Regulations were published in the Delaware Register of Regulations.
Following publication of the Proposed Regulations, the Commission Staff and certain interested parties have made material revisions to the Proposed Regulations. Accordingly, the Commission entered PSC Order No. 7628, requiring that the revised Proposed Regulations be re-published for public comment. The Commission hereby solicits written comments, suggestions, compilations of data, briefs and other written materials concerning the revised Proposed Regulations. Ten (10) copies of such material shall be filed with the Commission at its offices located at 861 Silver Lake Boulevard, Cannon Building, Suite 100, Dover, Delaware 19904. All such materials shall be filed with the Commission on or before October 5, 2009.
The revised Proposed Regulations and the materials submitted in connection therewith will be available for public inspection and copying at the Commission’s Dover office during normal business hours. The fee for copying is $0.25 per page. The regulations may also be reviewed, by appointment, at the office of the Division of the Public Advocate located at the Carvel State Office Building, 4th Floor, 820 North French Street, Wilmington, Delaware 19801 and will also be available for review on the Commission’s website: www.state.de.us/delpsc.
