9/19/1978--Introduced. Authorizes the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to permit utilities selling energy to a State which has established rules, regulations, or laws which prohibit or impede construction of new electric energy facilities to reduce or discontinue sales to that State before reducing sales in other States in the event that such utility cannot adequately meet the energy demand from all of its customers. Stipulates that such reductions shall not be permitted in the State in which the utility is located or when such reduction would adversely affect public health and safety.
