  • 04/03/2008
    Service - Administrative Law Judge Ruling

    Notice given by the Administrative Law Judge that in its response to the Petition, the Citizens Utility Board (“CUB”) requested that this Commission extend the statutory deadline pursuant to 83 Ill. Adm. Code 551.110(c). Similarly, in its response to the Petition, the Illinois Attorney General (the “AG”) seeks to extend the time for considering Ambit’s request for certification by 90 days pursuant to 83 Ill. Adm. Code 551.110(b) and (c).
    An administrative rule can neither limit nor extend the scope of a statute. (Du-Mont Ventilating Co. Ill. Dept. of Revenue, 73, Ill. 2d 243, 247-48, 383 N.E.2d 197 (1978); Pierce Downer’s Heritage Alliance v. the Village of Downer’s Grove, 302 Ill. App. 3d 286, 298-99, 704 N.E.2d 898 (2nd Dist. 1998)). (See also 83 Ill. Adm. Code 551.110(a) and 220 ILCS 5/19-110(e)(4)). Therefore, CUB and the AG are directed to file and serve a document responding to this ruling setting forth what statutory authority exists for 83 Ill. Adm. Code 551.110(b) and (c) to extend the 45-day statutory deadline for entertaining a docket seeking certification as an alternative gas supplier by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 4, 2008.
    Ambit’s motion for a protective order is denied as it has not shown good cause and many of the items it seeks to have kept confidential do not appear to be confidential. However, in the future, it may file versions of documents containing information that it deems to be confidential on the e-docket with redactions of the information counsel for Ambit deems to be confidential, as long as in so doing, it serves an unredacted version on the parties, Commission Staff and the Administrative Law Judge and files the unredacted version in the e-docket under seal, to be kept confidential for no longer than five years .
    Counsel for Ambit is further advised that any document that is filed under seal in the e-docket is not readily available to the Administrative Law Judge, making it imperative that the Administrative Law Judge be served with copies of such documents. Parties advised electronically.

    Service - Administrative Law Judge Ruling

    Notice given by the Administrative Law Judge that Ambit must set forth, in an affidavit executed by someone with personal knowledge, how much the deposit is that it charges its customers, or, how an Ambit employee determines the amount of the deposit, as well as a few examples of deposits that are calculated.
    Attachment B to the Petition is a series of letters to the regulated utilities advising them that Ambit intends to serve as an alternative gas supplier in their respective territories. One of these letters refers to the Peoples Gas Light and Coke Company as Peoples Energy. This reference should be changed, as Peoples Energy is an unregulated affiliate of the Peoples Gas Light and Coke Company.
    Ambit must provide affidavits from the persons who provided testimony establishing the factual foundation and personal knowledge of the persons testifying.
    Ambit has to and including 12:00 (noon) on April 7, 2008, to file and serve replies to the responses filed by the Citizens Utility Board and the Illinois Attorney General. Parties advised electronically.
