with the Commission's ex parte rules.7 Persons making oral ex parte presentations are reminded that
memoranda summarizing the presentations must contain summaries of the substance of the presentations
and not merely a listing of the subjects discussed. More than a one or two sentence description of the
views and arguments presented is generally required. Other provisions pertaining to oral and written ex
parte presentations in permit-but-disclose proceedings are set forth in Section 1.1206(b) of the
Commission's rules. 38

SThe Commission substantially revised its ex parte rules in 201 I. The effective date of these rule revisions was

notice is required for each oral ex parte presentation, not just for those presentations that involve new information or
arguments not already in the record. Further, a filer typically must submit an ex parte notice electronically in
machine-readable format. A filer may not submit a PDF image created by scanning a paper document, except in a
situation in which a word processing version of the document is not available. See Amendment of the
