Who should get the power?
The decision isn't easy to make. But under the
Bonneville Project Act. the BPA AdmmiMiator
must determine which customers get how
much federal power. The law is clear that

go to newly formed public utilities as well?
Should some preference customers be cut
back more than others?
On January 23, 1978, we filed a notice of intent
to develop an allocation policy. We received a
lot of comments and suggestions. With those
in mind, we have now drafted a formal proposal.
