Filing Public Comments

You may file written comments in any Commission case via the Commission’s Case Management System, CMS. Written comments in a case (or Docket) will be considered in any final Commission decision. These comments are part of the official case file.  Comments that contain offensive language, including threats to Commission staff or profanity, will be deleted from the case/docket and will not be considered as part of the case.  Confidential information should not be included in comments, as comments can be viewed by the general public, including the news media.

Intervenor Funding in Commission Proceedings

Intervenor funding may be provided to qualifying organizations for participation in Commission proceedings to cover the cost of expert witnesses, attorney fees and other reasonable expenses under Chapter 840 of the Commission Rules.  A determination on whether an intervenor is eligible for compensation will be made by the Commission consistent with these Rules.  The Commission recently updated these rules due to a new law passed by the Legislature.  Please contact Harry Lanphear at 207-287-3831 with any questions.
