Anyone filing a motion to intervene or protest must serve a copy of that document on the Petitioner.

    1.  PCM's request is part of its licensing proceeding in Project No. 12532-006. Thus, any person that intervened in the relicensing proceeding is already a party. Generally, the filing of a petition for a declaratory order involving an issue arising from the relicensing proceeding does not trigger a new opportunity to intervene. Accordingly, at this point in this proceeding, any person seeking to become a party to the proceeding must file a motion to intervene out-of-time pursuant to Rule 214(b)(3) and (d) of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedures that provides justification by reference to the factors set forth in Rule 214(d). The Commission may limit a late intervenor's participation to the issues raised in the petition for declaratory order. 18 CFR 385.214(d)(3)(i).
