BY JOHNSON, J. :

BY TRAYLOR, J. :


2001-CA- 1902 CITGO PETROLEUM CORPORATION AND CONOCO v. LOUISIANA PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION (Parish of E. Baton Rouge)

C/W

2001-CA- 1903 LAKE CHARLES PILOTS, INC. v. LOUISIANA PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION (Parish of E. Baton Rouge)

C/W

2001-CA- 1904 CITGO PETROLEUM CORPORATION AND CONOCO v. LOUISIANA PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION (Parish of E. Baton Rouge)

For the reasons expressed herein, we find that the fee dispute herein was properly certified to the LPSC after the Fee Commission failed to reach a quorum. We further find the LPSC is statutorily vested the regulation of pilots hired to navigate the outer bar, thereby requiring the LPSC to regulate all pilotage services in the outer bar. We amend the portion of the trial court's decision to reinstate the interim tariff. Accordingly, we affirm the trial court's reversal of the LPSC ruling to the extent that it remanded this matter for the inclusion of the outer bar in the final tariff and remand to the LPSC for continued proceedings consistent with this opinion.

AMENDED AND REMANDED.

KNOLL, J., concurs.
