On January 10, 2018, FERC issued an order in Monongahela Power Company (Docket No. EC17-88) addressing a request by Monongahela to purchase a large coal-fired plant from its affiliate, Allegheny Energy Supply Company, LLC. The applicant argued the purchase resulted from a request for proposal (RFP) process consistent with FERC’s previous rulings addressing prior affiliate transactions that resulted from RFPs in which FERC adopted four standards.

Restoring Internet Freedom Declaratory Ruling, Report and Order, and Order
Markham Cho Erickson, Pantelis Michalopoulos, Jonathan B. Sallet, Stephanie Roy
December 14, 2017

The Federal Communications Commission today voted 3-2 to approve a Declaratory Ruling, Report and Order, and Order (“Order”) setting aside nearly in its entirety the open Internet rules it adopted in 2015. The Order reverses the classification of broadband Internet access service (“BIAS”) as a common carrier service subject to Title II of the Communications Act of 1934, reclassifying BIAS as an information service. It eliminates the bright-line net neutrality rules—the prohibitions on blocking, throttling, and paid prioritization. And it eliminates the general conduct standard. Instead, the Commission will rely on transparency requirements to protect the openness of the Internet.
