    The proposed amendment would change the BFN, Unit 1, operating 
license to increase the maximum authorized power level from 3293 
megawatts thermal (MWt) to 3952 MWt. This change represents an increase 
of approximately 20 percent above the current maximum authorized power 
level. The proposed amendment would also change the BFN, Unit 1, 
licensing bases and any associated Technical Specifications for 
containment overpressure, the maximum ultimate heat sink temperature, 
and the upper bound peak cladding temperature.
    Before issuance of the proposed license amendment, the Commission 
will have made findings required by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as 
amended (the Act), and the Commission's regulations.
    Within 60 days after the date of publication of this notice, the
