PNM Rate Case Schedule Extended As Settlement Discussions Continue
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
The rate case schedule for PNM Resources' (NYSE: PNM) New Mexico
utility, PNM, was extended today by four weeks to allow the parties
additional time to continue to work on a settlement.
On Dec. 20, PNM filed a motion with state regulators to extend the
schedule after it had reached an agreement with the N.M. Attorney
General's Office and staff of the N.M. Public Regulation Commission.
"The Settling Parties need additional time to finalize and document
their agreement and to attempt to gain concurrence of the other parties
to the terms of the settlement," the motion stated.
Today, a Commission hearing examiner granted the motion and set Jan. 20,
2011, as the deadline for filing a stipulation. If a stipulation does
not materialize, the case will proceed on a litigation path according to
the new extended schedule.
The terms of a possible stipulation will be released when filed with the
Commission. Today's ruling is available on the PNM Resources Web site at http://www.pnmresources.com/investors/regulatory.cfm.
