On August 27, 2020, the Western Energy Imbalance Market (EIM) Body of State Regulators (BOSR) submitted comments to the EIM Governance Review Committee (GRC) on the GRC’s Straw Proposal.  The EIM BOSR generally supports the recommendations in the Straw Proposal, such as joint authority by the EIM Governing Body and the CAISO Board of Governors on an expanded portion of the market rules. Further, the EIM BOSR provides recommendations for the BOSR funding mechanism and outlines options being considered.  The EIM BOSR also recognizes the value of the public power perspective and is conducting discussions about the potential for two liaison positions.
