<h2>
Background</h2>
<p>
On 17 September 2008, SP Ausnet wrote to the Commission proposing a Rule Change relating to the pass through of easement land tax in Victoria. The Rule Change proposal seeks to amend the National Electricity Rules (NER) to enable SP Ausnet to more accurately pass through an easement land tax to its customers. The Rule change proposal seeked to reflect in the NER an understanding with the Victorian Government in relation to easement land taxes while reinstating previous regulatory practice.</p>
<p>
On 16 October 2008, the Commission published a notice under section 95 of the NEL commencing initial consultation on this Rule change proposal. The Commission intended to expedite the making of the proposed Rule under section 96 of the NEL on the grounds that the proposed Rule is non-controversial, subject to the receipt of written objections. A copy of this notice (16 October 2008) and the Rule change proposal is available below.</p>
<p>
No written objections were received by 31 October 2008. Accordingly, the Commission continued to expedite the statutory Rule Change process under section 96 of the NEL.</p>
<p>
No submissions on the Rule Change proposal were received by 14 November 2008.</p>
