       Commission Staff, by and through its attorney, Kara Van Bockern, respectfully requests the

Public Utilities Commission of the State of South Dakota to continue the Procedural Order as it

relates to Discovery. Specifically, Commission Staff requests the April 13,2007 deadline for Staffs

follow-up discovery to be extended thirty days to May 13, 2007. Commission Staff also offers

EchoStar, and any other entity joined in this proceeding, an opportunity to request follow-up

discovery until June 13, 2007

       In addition, Commission Staff respectfully requests that the Public Utilities Commission add

the following parties to the caption in TC06-191: EchoStar Communications Corporation, EchoStar

Orbital Corporation, EchoStar Orbital Corporation II, EchoStar DBS Corporation, EchoStar

International Corporation, Echosphere LLC, Dish Network Service LLC, Dish Network California

discovery dates and to add additional parties to the docket.
