About Intervention
The law provides for an open public hearing at which, under appropriate circumstances, interested persons may intervene. An interested person may be granted intervention if the outcome of the case will directly and substantially impact the person, and the person's intervention will not unduly broaden the issues in the case. Intervention, among other things, entitles a party to present sworn evidence at hearing and to cross-examine other parties' witnesses. Intervention is not required for you to appear at the hearing and provide public comment, to file written comments in the record of the case, or to receive emailed notice of each filing made in the case by following the docket.
 
To request intervention, you must file a written request to intervene, either (a) by filing a hard copy request (meeting filing requirements) with Docket Control (Docket Control, 1200 West Washington, Phoenix, AZ 85007), or (b) by eFiling the request. Your request must be filed or eFiled no later than June 27, 2019. You also must serve a copy of the request to intervene on each party of record, on the same day that you file the request to intervene with the Commission. 
 
Your request to intervene must contain the following:
 
1.  Your name, address, and telephone number;
 
2.  The docket number for the case in which you are requesting to intervene;
 
3.  A short statement explaining:
a.  Your interest in the proceeding (e.g., a customer of the regulated company involved, a property owner in an area to be affected by the case, etc.),
 
b. How you will be directly and substantially affected by the outcome of the case, and 
 
c. Why your intervention will not unduly broaden the issues in the case;
 
4.  If a hearing has not been scheduled, whether and why you believe a hearing is needed; 
 
5. A statement certifying that you have sent a copy of your request to intervene to the regulated company or its attorney and to all other parties of record in the case; and
 
6.  If you are not represented by an attorney who is an active member of the Arizona State Bar, and you are not representing yourself as an individual, sufficient information and any appropriate documentation to demonstrate compliance with Arizona Supreme Court Rules 31, 38, 39, and 42, as applicable. This only applies if you are NOT representing yourself and you are not a licensed attorney.
 
The granting of motions to intervene shall be governed by A.A.C. R14-3-105, except that all motions to intervene must be filed on or before June 27, 2019
