FERC, California Near Deal on Board Dispute

June 10, 2004|From Reuters

A long-running dispute between California and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission over who appoints members of the state's power grid operator could be headed for a settlement, according to court documents.

FERC in 2002 ordered the California Independent System Operator to replace its five-member, governor-appointed board with a nine-member group independent of the governor's control.

The California grid operator ignored FERC's order and challenged the agency's ruling in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.

The two sides asked the court, which heard oral arguments in May, to delay a ruling in the case.
