33.1 VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTION MECHANISM. Pursuant to the GRI Settlement approved by FERC order issued

April 29, 1998, at Docket No. RP97-149-003, et al.(83 FERC ¶61,093), Columbia has agreed to be a

voluntary collection agent for Shippers who voluntarily choose to contribute to GRI programs through a

"check-the-box" mechanism on its billing invoices. The amounts collected through the mechanism will not

be part of Columbia's jurisdictional rates and FERC will not review or approve any amounts submitted by

Shippers. The "check-the-box" mechanism will allow Shippers to state the amount of their voluntary

contribution and the programs they wish the amount to be applicable to.

 

33.2 Remittance to GRI. Transporter shall remit to GRI, not later than 15 days after the receipt

thereof, all monies received by the "check-the-box" mechanism, less any amounts properly payable to

Federal, State or local authorities relating to the monies received hereunder. In addition to the

amounts received under the "check-the-box" mechanism, Columbia shall state the amounts applicable to

the specific projects indicated by Shippers.
