USDA/FS RIN: 0596-AC42 Publication ID: Fall 2010 
Title: Resource Agency Procedures for Conditions and Prescriptions in Hydropower Licenses  
Abstract: The Energy Policy Act of 2005 (Pub. L. 109-58) contains provisions requiring a trial-type hearing to resolve disputed issues of material fact related to mandatory conditions and prescriptions required under the issuance of a Federal hydropower license. The law also mandates that the Agency consider alternatives to proposed mandatory conditions and prescriptions. This law charges agencies requiring mandatory conditions and prescriptions with the promulgation of new regulations by November 7, 2005, to provide the regulatory framework to implement the trial-type hearing process. The U.S. Department of Agriculture, acting through the Forest Service, is one of the agencies required under the Act to provide a trial-type hearing and issue an implementing regulation. To meet the statutory deadline, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, along with the U.S. Departments of the Interior and Commerce, issued a joint interim final rule. The Department of the Interior is the lead agency in this effort. The Forest Service adopted an interim final rule at 7 CFR part 1, establishing a trial-type hearing procedure to resolve disputed issues of material fact related to mandatory conditions and prescriptions required under the issuance of a Federal hydropower license. The interim final rule also provides a process for the filing of proposed alternative conditions and prescriptions.
