Ex Parte Communications are any oral or written communications with a Commissioner or Commission Staff member that addresses the merits of an adjudicatory proceeding on which the Commissioner or Staff member must render a decision and that was neither on the record nor on reasonable prior notice to all the parties. Such communications with Commissioners and Commission Staff are inappropriate between the time of the initial application filing and the rendering of a final decision on the case. When the Commissioners or Staff members receive such communications, they will be posted on the website for 30 days with notification sent to all parties of record on the proceeding.
