NOTICE OF FILING OF PETITION BY ATMOS ENERGY CORPORATION FOR EXCEPTION TO LPSC ORDER NO. U-20181 AND APPROVAL OF METHOD FOR RECOVERY OF ACCRUED EXPENSE AND CHANGE IN RATES
Atmos Energy Corporation has filed a petition with the Louisiana Public Service Commission for an exception to LPSC Order No.U-20181 requiring a utility to book post-retirement benefits other than pensions on a pay-as-you-go basis and has requested approval of a method to recover the accrued expense resulting from the gap between accounting for post-retirement benefits other than pensions on a pay-as-you-go basis as compared to an accrual basis as required by FAS 106. Atmos Energy Corporation has proposed three options for recovery of the accrued expense and the approval of any of the three options will result in an increase in the rates paid by customers of both, Trans Louisiana Gas and Louisiana Gas Service, regulatory divisions of Atmos Energy Corporation in 49 parishes in Louisiana, including the parish in which this notice is published. The increase in rates will take effect upon approval by the Louisiana Public Service Commission.
