The proposed SERC Regional Reliability Standard Development procedure is not open as a resolution of a SAR steps 2 and 3 pages 14 and 15 is accepted or rejected based on the work of a Technical Committee Executive Committee which is not a balanced committee with representation from all sectors. Because of this the views of unrepresented sectors cannot be voiced. The same issue continues through the drafting team formation. The approval of the standard is also not open as the vote weighting system used to approve a standard gives undue control to the Investor-Owned Utility sector.

      Although the Technical Committees are balanced (reference page 12) the Executive Committees are not balanced and proposals to re-            form them will further change the balance in favor of the major players. All decisions should be made by the full Technical Committees or          by reforming the Executive Committees to be balanced.

Comments: The proposed SERC Regional Reliability Standard Development procedure is not transparent as a resolution of a SAR steps 2 and 3 pages 14 and 15 is accepted or rejected based on the work of a Technical Committee Executive Committee which is not a balanced committee with representation from all sectors. Because of this the views of unrepresented sectors cannot be voiced. The same issue continues through the drafting team formation. The approval of the standard is also not transparent as the vote weighting system used to approve a standard gives undue control to the Investor-Owned Utility sector.

 Although the Technical Committees are balanced (reference page 12) the Executive Committees are definitely not balanced and                proposals to re-form them will further change the balance in favor of the major players. All decisions should be made by the full Technical Committees or by reforming the Executive Committees to be balanced.
