PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
The Washington utilities and transportation commission (commission) filed a preproposal statement of inquiry (CR-101) regarding a fuel surcharge mechanism for solid waste, auto transportation and ferry companies on October 15, 2010, at WSR 10-21-061. The commission has decided not to proceed with this rule-making proceeding and requests that the CR-101 published in WSR 10-21-061 be withdrawn.
On April 20, 2011, the commission issued, to all interested persons in the rule-making docket, an order in Dockets A-042090 and T-101661 (Order 05) implementing new procedures that appropriately balance the purposes of the temporary fuel surcharge mechanism with the statutory requirement that all rates and fares must be just, fair, reasonable, and sufficient.
