    (1) Modify its standards and procedures in accordance with Section 18c-1401 of this Chapter; or
    (2) Modify its procedures in accordance with this Chapter in response to other circumstances impacting on the jurisdiction of the Commission in the field of transportation which are not of the Commission's own making but which necessitate adoption or amendment of regulations prior to the completion of normal rulemaking proceedings pursuant to the Illinois Administrative Procedure Act.
