On October 16, 2013, FERC approved Florida Southeast Connection’s use of the pre-filing review process for this project. This process allows FERC’s review of the proposed project prior to our application submittal to identify and address issues early in the process. Information regarding our pre-filing request is available under Docket No. PF14-2 in FERC’s eLibrary website at http://www.ferc.gov/docs-filing/elibrary.asp.
