SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Commission Rule 140.2 describes the
organization and location of the Commission's regional offices in New
York, Chicago, and Kansas City (the Eastern, Central, and Southwestern

In addition, the Commission is amending the list of addresses
provided in Rule 145.6, which instructs members of the public on where
to direct requests for public records, to remove the reference to the
Minneapolis office and to update the Kansas City address.
