  Description
ALJ Scott issues ruling. Sierra Pacific has requested that the time within which parties may file written objections to a Stipulation filed by it on September 19, 2000, be shortened to 10 days from the date of service, rather than the 20 days allowed under OAR 860-014-0085. Shortening of the period is reasonable and the request is granted. Comments on the Settlement Agreement filed by Sierra Pacific and other parties (a different document from the Stipulation referred to in this Ruling) are due on September 28, 2000. In the interests of closing the record in this case as promptly as possible, it is appropriate to shorten somewhat the time for comments on the Stipulation. Therefore, comments on the Stipulation are due by September 29, 2000. copies served by mail 9/21/00.
