Petitioners Tonia R. Martin, Craig A. Martin, Sr., Cherilyn Morrissey and James Morrissey are each ordered to amend their petitions for limited appearance in order to cure the defects in their petitions by providing a verification of each statement of position and a certificate of service on all parties for each petition as required by Rule 2.08 of the Commission's RPPs by or before August 16, 2013.

442. ORDER #36 (COMMISSION): Accordingly, the Commission grants rehearing for consideration of additional evidence on the need for, and the potential environmental impact of, the proposed 345 kV project. The parties should provide additional testimony and more recent, comprehensive evidence on whether the proposed 345 kV project is needed, whether transmission requirements in the region might be met by alternative options, such as expanding, upgrading, or building lower capacity facilities, including 161 kV lines, and if not why not, the comparative costs associated with the options, the environmental impact of the options, and the long term sufficiency of the options. The Commission also grants rehearing for consideration of additional evidence on the routing of the proposed transmission line. The parties should provide additional evidence on SWEPCO's proposed routes. If SWEPCO chooses to propose or modify a route, it should submit proof that all landowners have received the statutory notice. With regard to routing, the parties should provide evidence whether existing 161 kV lines could be upgraded or existing rights-of-way used or expanded so as to limit adverse environmental impacts. Because the Commission grants rehearing for consideration of additional evidence, the prior grant of the CECPN for Route 109 is vacated. Whether a CECPN for transmission facilities should be granted and, if so, along what route will be determined after consideration of all the evidence. By separate order the Commission will set a procedural schedule for additional testimony and hearings. Ms.
