On October 5, 2011, the White House announced the creation of a Rapid Response Team for Transmission (RRTT). In support of the RRTT the Department of Energy’s Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability released a Federal Register Notice seeking information on questions related to permitting of transmission lines. The Request for Information focused on making the development times for generation and transmission more commensurate with one another.
