On December 7, 2006, FERC held a technical conference on the new rules implementing the Public Utility Holding Company Act of 2005 (PUHCA 2005) and FPA Section 203 to determine whether additional steps are needed to address its regulatory responsibilities or whether current policies and regulations are sufficient. Numerous parties representing state commissions and energy market players (including generators and financial institutions) commented on areas of necessary improvement. The deadline for interested parties to file comments is January 26, 2007.
