From E&E News:

Chris Villarreal, an associate fellow at the R Street Institute and independent consultant, said one of the concerns around finishing the proposed rule is that since FERC initiated the process, the DER technology and landscape have grown and changed, leaving aspects of the docket “stale.”

“This portion of that docket has been sitting out there for a long time,” he said. “Still, there’s a lot of uncertainty that could be addressed with a FERC order. Removing the uncertainty for [regional transmission organizations] would definitely be a benefit.”
