Thank you all, very much, for the thoughtful sets of practices submitted by the Task Teams. Andy, Julie, Herb, and I have spent a good chunk of the last week consolidating them in the draft final report. Please get as much feedback as possible by circulating the report within your organization. It would be helpful if organizations could send me a single set of comments and suggested changes by 12-12-2008, but I will accept comments from any source.
The body of the report is in the ,doc file (Click Here) and the .pdf contains the appendices (Click Here). Appendix C, Model Ordinance, is the only section shown with edit marks; however we made some changes to the Task Team practices. The “with edits” .pdf file (Click Here)shows all changes made to Task Team practices during the consolidation of the final report.
Starting on 12-15-2008, we will review stakeholder comments and parse them out to the various Task Teams by 1-5-2009. Cycla will send meeting reminders for each of the teleconferences shown below.
Comments on recommended practices from an individual Task Teams will be considered during teleconferences on:
Protecting Communities Tuesday 1-13-2009 2:30 pm Eastern
Communications Wednesday 1-14-2009 11:00 am Eastern
Protecting Transmission Pipelines Wednesday 1-14-2009 2:00 pm Eastern
Comments on consolidated practices will be discussed during a teleconference for all Task Teams on Thursday, 1-15-2009 at 2 pm Eastern.
Again, thank you for all of your PIPA support over the past year!
