Title: ●Coordination of Federal Authorizations for Electric Transmission Facilities  

This rulemaking proposes to provide an updated process for the timely submission of information needed for Federal authorizations for proposed electric transmission facilities pursuant to section 216(h) of the Federal Power Act (FPA) (16 U.S.C. 824p(h)). It seeks to ensure electric transmission projects are developed consistent with the nation’s environmental laws, including laws that protect endangered and threatened species, critical habitats, and historic properties. It provides a framework, called the Integrated Interagency Pre-Application (IIP) Process, by which the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will coordinate submission of materials necessary for federal authorizations and related environmental reviews required under Federal law to site qualified electric transmission facilities, and integrates that IIP Process into the Federal Electric Transmission Authorization Coordination Program.
