Spokane Energy, LLC; Notice of Issuance of Order

October 21, 1998.
    Spokane Energy, LLC (Spokane Energy), a wholly-owned subsidiary of 
the Washington Water Power Company, filed an application requesting 
that the Commission authorize it to engage in wholesale power sales at 
market-based rates, and for certain waivers and authorizations. In 
particular, Spokane Energy requested that the Commission grant blanket 
approval under 18 CFR Part 34 of all future issuances of securities and 
assumptions of liabilities by Spokane Energy. On October 16, 1998, the 
Commission issued an Order Accepting For Filing Proposed Tariff For 
Market-Based Power Sales (Order), in the above-docketed proceeding.
    The Commission's October 16, 1998 Order granted the request for 
blanket approval under Part 34, subject to the conditions found in 
Ordering Paragraphs (C), (D), and (F):
    (C) Within 30 days after the date of issuance of this order, any 
person desiring to be heard or to protest the Commission's blanket

Ordering Paragraph (C) above, Spokane Energy is hereby authorized to 
issue securities and assume obligations and liabilities as guarantor, 
indorser, surety or otherwise in respect of any security of another 
person; provided that such issue or assumption is for some lawful 
object within the corporate purposes of Spokane Energy, compatible with 
the public interest, and reasonably necessary or appropriate for such 
    (F) The Commission reserves the right to modify this order to 
require a further showing that neither public nor private interests
