Re: Case No. 8582-- MAPA's Proposed List of Additional Issues

Dear Hearing Examiner Bourland:

At the Prehearing Conference in this case held on October 13, 1993, the parties in attendance discussed the issues raised by The Washington Post Company's ("TWP") Petition at some length. Those present worked together in framing a detailed list of issues to be addressed in the proceeding, and ultimately adopted a list of issues that was even more comprehensive than the thorough list suggested by Staff (the "Issues List"). The Middle Atlantic Payphone Association ("MAPA") did not send a representative to that meeting, although it was aware that one of the purposes of the Prehearing Conference was to develop a list of issues to be addressed. The parties who were present nevertheless considered MAPA's interest in the proceeding and agreed to add the following to Staff's draft of the Issues List: "Limited to the scope of this proceeding, what, if any, issues are presented to payphone providers regarding the assignment of N11 codes?"
After the Issues List was adopted, you granted MAPA's Petition to Intervene on the condition that the MAPA "takes the case as it finds it. "1 A week

after that ruling, MAPA sent a letter in which it proposed to add 10 issues to the Issues List ("Proposed Issues"). For the reasons stated below, TWP opposes MAPA's proposal.
First, virtually every one of MAPA's proposed issues is already encompassed by the Issues List. For example, MAPA's proposed issue A concerns how to assign N11 codes to ensure that they are put to "their highest and best use;" its proposed issue B asks whether charges associated with N11 code assignments could be "flowed back" to ratepayers, e.g. by auction of N11 codes; proposed issue C asks what the public benefits are of assigning a code to a particular applicant; and proposed issue F inquires about the public need for services primarily accessed from home telephones. All of these are variations on the question of whether use of N11 codes is in the public interest (Issue 1 on the Issues List), and how and for what purposes the Commission should assign N11 codes (Issues 3,4,6 and 8 on the Issues List).2
MAPA does raise several issues specifically concerning payphone providers, e.g. proposed issues G and K. Each of these concerns the impact that the assignment of N11 codes will have on payphone providers and so falls squarely within the scope of Issue 18 on the Issues List.
Instead of limiting the issues it wishes addressed to the proceeding at hand, MAPA appears (notably in proposed issue E) to want to use the Commission's consideration of TWP's Petition as another forum in which to voice grievances about compensation to payphone providers for the completion of 411 calls. That matter was previously before the Commission3 and should not be relitigated here.


N11 Code, Case No. 8582, Letter to All Parties of Record from O. Ray Bourland Ill, Chief Hearing Examiner, dated October 22,1993, p.2 ("lnfodial and MAPA take the case as they find it"). Because it was unclear whether you had reviewed MAPA's proposal before sending the October 22 letter, TWP takes this opportunity to clarify that the Case No. 8582 Issues for Nil Code Assignment attached to your October 22 letter is comprehensive, and that you do not intend to include MAPA's proposed issues in that list.
2 Attachment A depicts the relationship between each of MAPA's Proposed Issues and those on the Issues List.

TWP asks that you direct MAPA to address only those matters directly relevant to this proceeding, and require it to do so within the framework of the Issues List adopted at the Prehearing Conference.
