As explained in the Establishing Order, the Commission will issue agendas for each meeting of the Task Force, after consulting with all Task Force members and considering suggestions from state commissions.[4]  The Establishing Order set forth a broad array of transmission-related topics that the Task Force has the authority to examine and will focus on topics related to planning and paying for transmission, including transmission to facilitate generator interconnection, that provides benefits from a federal and state perspective.[5]  All interested persons, including all state commissions, are hereby invited to file comments in this docket on agenda topics for the next public meeting of the Task Force by January 8, 2024.  The Task Force members will consider the suggested agenda topics in developing the agenda for the next public meeting.  The Commission will issue the agenda no later than February 14, 2024, for the public meeting to be held on February 28, 2024.
