FOREWORD

FEDERAL POWER ACT

The Federal Power Act was originally enacted as the Federal Water Power Act, approved June 10, 1920 (41 Stat. 1063, 16 U. S. C. 791–823). On March 3, 1921, it was amended to exclude therefrom any authority to license water power projects in national parks or national monuments (41 Stat. 1353). The Commission was reorganized as an independent Commission under the act approved June 23, 1930 (46 Stat. 797). By Title II of the Public Utility Act of 1935, approved August 26, 1935 (49 Stat. 838, 16 U. S. C. Sup. IV, 791a-825r), the original Federal Water Power Act was made Part I of the "Federal Power Act" and Parts II and III added to that act. Part II vests in the Commission jurisdiction over the interstate transmission of electric energy and public utility companies engaged therein. Part III relates to such companies and to licensees and carries the administrative and procedural provisions of the Federal Power Act.
