This amendment complies with the requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission’s rules and regulations. The Commission has made appropriate findings as required by the Act and the Commission’s rules and regulations in 10 CFR Chapter I, which are set forth in the license amendment. In accordance with 10 CFR 72.46(b)(2), a determination has been made that the amendment does not present a genuine issue as to whether public health and safety will be significantly affected. Therefore, the VerDate jul<14>2003 16:03 Jul 08, 2005 Jkt 205001 publication of a notice of proposed action and an opportunity for hearing or a notice of hearing is not warranted.

Introduction The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has received, by letter dated May 20, 2005, an application filed by R. E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant, LLC (Ginna LLC) requesting the release of a part of the site for unrestricted use at its R. E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant (Ginna Plant), located in Wayne County, New York. An NRC administrative review, documented in a letter to Ginna LLC dated June 29, 2005, found the request acceptable to begin a technical review. Before approving the proposed partial site release, the NRC will need to determine that the licensee has met the criteria set forth in Section 50.83, ‘‘Release of part of a power reactor facility or site for unrestricted use,’’ of Part 50 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR 50.83). The tract of land proposed for release consists of two adjacent parcels, comprising a total of approximately 15 acres located along the western edge of the Ginna Plant site boundary, and is entirely outside of the Exclusion Area. The release of the part of the site would allow Ginna LLC to convey the tract of land under a Purchase and Sale Contract dated September 10, 2002, that was assumed from the former licensee of the Ginna Plant. Pursuant to this contract agreement, the land would be sold to a real estate developer for the purpose of developing the land for residential use. No physical changes to the Ginna Plant facility or operational changes are being proposed in the application. The NRC will approve an application for partial release of a non-impacted area, if it determines that the licensee has adequately evaluated the effect of releasing the property and has adequately justified the classification of any release areas as non-impacted. II. Opportunity To Provide Comments The NRC is providing notice to individuals in the vicinity of the facility that the NRC is in receipt of this request, and will accept written comments concerning this proposal by August 10, 2005. The comments must be submitted to the Secretary, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555–0001, Attention: Rulemakings and Adjudications Staff, and should cite E:\FR\FM\11JYN1.SGM 11JYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 131 / Monday, July 11, 2005 / Notices the publication date and page number of this Federal Register notice. Furthermore, before acting upon this request for approval submitted in accordance with 10 CFR 50.83, the NRC will schedule and conduct in the near future a public meeting in the vicinity of the Ginna Plant for the purpose of obtaining public comments on the proposed release of the part of the site. The NRC will consider and, if appropriate, respond to these written and verbal comments, but such comments will not otherwise constitute part of the decisional record. Comments received after public meeting will be considered if practicable to do so, but only those comments received on or before the public meeting can be assured consideration. III. Further Information Documents related to this action, including the application for approval and supporting documentation, are available for public inspection at the NRC’s Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, Public File Area O1 F21, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland.

DPR–57 and NPF–5 for the Edwin I. Hatch Nuclear Plant, Units 1 and 2, respectively, located in Appling County, Georgia. The proposed amendment would have revised the Administrative Controls Section 5.3.1 of the technical specifications and replaced the specific designation for the Health Physics Superintendent with a reference to the senior individual in charge of Health Physics, and to add flexibility to the qualification requirements for the unit staff positions. The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on September 28, 2004 (69 FR 57993). However, by letter dated June 27, 2005, the licensee withdrew the proposed change. For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated July 20, 2004, and the licensee’s letter dated June 27, 2005, which withdrew the application for license amendment.

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 licensee may file a request for a hearing with respect to issuance of the amendment to the subject facility operating license and any person whose interest may be affected by this proceeding and who wishes to participate as a party in the proceeding must file a written request for a hearing and a petition for leave to intervene. Requests for a hearing and a petition for leave to intervene shall be filed in accordance with the Commission’s ‘‘Rules of Practice for E:\FR\FM\11JYN1.SGM 11JYN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Introduction

    The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has received, by letter 
dated May 20, 2005, an application filed by R. E. Ginna Nuclear Power 
Plant, LLC (Ginna LLC) requesting the release of a part of the site for 
unrestricted use at its R. E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant (Ginna Plant), 
located in Wayne County, New York. An NRC administrative review, 
documented in a letter to Ginna LLC dated June 29, 2005, found the 
request acceptable to begin a technical review. Before approving the 
proposed partial site release, the NRC will need to determine that the 
licensee has met the criteria set forth in Section 50.83, ``Release of 
part of a power reactor facility or site for unrestricted use,'' of 
Part 50 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR 50.83). 
The tract of land proposed for release consists of two adjacent 
parcels, comprising a total of approximately 15 acres located along the 
western edge of the Ginna Plant site boundary, and is entirely outside 
of the Exclusion Area. The release of the part of the site would allow 
Ginna LLC to convey the tract of land under a Purchase and Sale 
Contract dated September 10, 2002, that was assumed from the former 
licensee of the Ginna Plant. Pursuant to this contract agreement, the 
land would be sold to a real estate developer for the purpose of 
developing the land for residential use. No physical changes to the 
Ginna Plant facility or operational changes are being proposed in the 
application.
    The NRC will approve an application for partial release of a non-
impacted area, if it determines that the licensee has adequately 
evaluated the effect of releasing the property and has adequately 
justified the classification of any release areas as non-impacted.

II. Opportunity To Provide Comments

facility that the NRC is in receipt of this request, and will accept

accordance with 10 CFR 50.83, the NRC will schedule and conduct in the 
near future a public meeting in the vicinity of the Ginna Plant for the 
purpose of obtaining public comments on the proposed release of the 
part of the site. The NRC will consider and, if appropriate, respond to 
these written and verbal comments, but such comments will not otherwise
