Brief Description of Case Type: 
Proceedings for Commission review of requests for permits relating to the siting of interstate electric transmission facilities under section 216 of the FPA. Applicants are required to file, along with other application-related materials, a Project Participation Plan to ensure stakeholders have access to accurate and timely information on the proposed project and permit process. (It is Commission practice to hold formal, trial-type hearings only in rare instances where the written record developed in a "paper hearing" would not provide a sufficient basis for resolving the relevant issues.)
