The PTAC shall timely determine whether it proposes to recommend that the Commission approve or reject all or a portion of the STIF Plan.


If the PTAC determines that it will recommend rejection of all or a portion of the STIF Plan, it shall timely prepare a brief written statement of the reasons for its recommendation. Within seven days of the PTAC’s preparation of the statement, the Agency shall provide notice of the PTAC’s intended recommendation and a copy of the statement of reasons to the Qualified Entity.


The PTAC shall timely communicate its recommendation to the Commission.

The Qualified Entity shall provide the additional information to the Agency within 30 days.


The Commission shall consider the PTAC’s recommendation and determine whether to approve or reject the STIF Plan originally submitted by the Qualified Entity or a revised STIF Plan submitted by the Qualified Entity under section (4) of this rule. If the Commission rejects a proposed STIF Plan, the Commission shall identify the reasons for the rejection and the Agency shall provide the reasons to the Qualified Entity in writing. Reasons for Commission rejection include, but are not limited to:
