          PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA

                                  Resolution ALJ 176-3196
                                  Administrative Law Judge Division
                                  July 26, 2007


                                  RESOLUTION


         RESOLUTION ALJ 176-3196. Preliminary determinations of category and
         need for hearing for proceedings initiated by application pursuant to
         Rule 7.1 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure.




Senate Bill (SB) 960 (Leonard, ch. 96-0856) requires, among other things, that the
Commission categorize proceedings and determine the need for hearing for purposes of
determining the applicable restrictions on ex parte communications and other
applicable rules. The rules implementing these requirements are found, for the most
part, in Articles 7 and 8 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure.

Rule 7.1 requires the Commission to preliminarily determine, for a proceeding initiated
by application, the proceeding’s category and whether the proceeding requires a
hearing. The Commission has reviewed the initial pleading of the utility applicants and
makes the preliminary determinations of category and need for hearing as shown in the
attached Preliminary Determination Schedule, consistent with the requirements of
Rule 7.1.

No public review or comment is required for this resolution pursuant to Rule 14.7.

IT IS ORDERED that:

1. The category and need for hearing for each proceeding initiated by
application listed in the attached Schedule of Preliminary Determinations are
preliminarily determined, as noted.
2. This resolution is effective today.
