Title: Resource Agency Hearings and Alternatives Development Procedures in Hydropower Licenses  

This rule establishes procedures for trial-type hearings on disputed issues of material fact with respect to conditions and prescriptions developed for inclusion in hydropower licenses issued by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. It also establishes procedures for the submission and consideration of alternative conditions and prescriptions. In March 2015, we published a "revised interim rule with request for comment," in which we responded to comments received on the previous interim rule and requested further comment.  During the comment period on the revised interim rules, one comment was received and it is being addressed in the final action.
