The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued a Critical Energy Infrastructure Information (CEII) rule in March 2003, establishing new procedures outside of FOIA for requesting information. Companies holding CEII can submit the information to FERC and it will be protected from disclosure under FOIA. These procedures provide corporations with undue influence and opportunity to manipulate a process that is supposed to ensure the public’s right to know. FERC developed this rule with no congressional oversight or mandate.
