RE: WCC Form 36 Procedure Under Governor's Executive Order

The Governor's recent Executive Order suspending Chapter 568 statutory, regulatory and administrative deadlines (including the 15-day deadline to object to a Form 36 pursuant to Section 31-296). As a result, WCC will no longer be automatically approving Forms 36 administratively.

Currently, and going forward, commissioners are receiving a daily list of all Forms 36 that would have otherwise been administratively approved. Commissioners are then reviewing these Forms 36 to determine if approval, denial or a hearing is warranted.

Further, as the result of the suspension of the 15-day deadline to object, a Form 36 approved in the above manner will require a hearing if WCC receives notice of an objection after the expiration of 15 days
