    Effective
    Version

    Description

    22

    22-B

    Reports of accidents on railroads

    24

    24-C

    Supersedes General Order 24-B (effective July 1, 1964). General Order 24-C became effective on August 27, 2012. Revisions to General Order 24 include: 1) the filing of a General Order 24 report on a quarterly instead of a monthly basis for the first year of the Financing Rule. Commencing in the second year, reports will be filed semi-annually (June and December); 2) revisions to the type of information provided in such reports; 3) elimination of requirement that a utility maintain a separate bank account to record money derived from the sale of securities, except where the Commission specifically designates what the proceeds can be used for, or in instances where the loan will be repaid by surcharge; and 4) an updated list of information required in the report, given the manner in which securities transactions are now recorded by utilities as required by other regulatory entities.
