Staff has informed the Commission that the items appearing on the following Consent Agenda are routine and not disputed by the company or parties usually participating in PUC proceedings.  No member of the public has expressed interest in these items.  The Commission will consider the Consent Agenda as a single action item at the beginning of the public meeting.  If a member of the public requests to be heard on one of these items, the item will be removed from the Consent Agenda and considered separately.
