31.1 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 Gulf 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 Gulf'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.

 

31.2 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 Gulf shall state the amounts applicable to the specific projects

indicated by Shippers.
