The renewed license would authorize the applicant to operate the KSU Research Reactor for an additional 20-years beyond the period specified in the current license. The current license for the KSU Research Reactor expired on October 16, 2002. On September 12, 2002, and supplemented on December 22, 2004 and July 6, 2005, the Commission’s staff received an application from KSU filed pursuant to 10 CFR 50.51(a), to renew Facility License No. R–88 for the KSU Research Reactor. A Notice of Receipt and Availability of the license renewal application, ‘‘Notice of License Renewal E:\FR\FM\06OCN1.SGM 06OCN1 58488 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 193 / Thursday, October 6, 2005 / Notices Application for Facility Operating License; Kansas State University,’’ was published in the Federal Register on October 11, 2002 (67 FR 63457). Because the license renewal application was timely filed under 10 CFR 2.109, the license will not be deemed to have expired until the license renewal application has been finally determined. The Commission’s staff has determined that KSU has submitted sufficient information in accordance with 10 CFR 50.33 and 50.34 that the application is acceptable for docketing. The current Docket No. 50–188 for Facility License No. R–88, will be retained. The docketing of the renewal application does not preclude requesting additional information as the review proceeds, nor does it predict whether the Commission will grant or deny the application. Prior to a decision to renew the license, the Commission will have made findings required by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission’s rules and regulations. Within thirty (30) days after the date of publication of this Federal Register Notice, the applicant may file a request for a hearing, 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 with respect to the renewal of the license. Requests for a hearing and a petition for leave to intervene shall be filed in accordance with the Commission’s ‘‘Rules of Practice for Domestic Licensing Proceedings’’ in 10 CFR Part 2. Interested persons should consult a current copy of 10 CFR 2.309, which is available at the Commission’s Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland 20852 and is accessible from the Agency Public Electronic Reading Room on the Internet at the NRC Web site, http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/ doc-collections/cfr.

In the event that no request for a hearing or petition for leave to intervene is filed within the 30-day period, the NRC may, upon completion of its evaluations and upon making the findings required under 10 CFR parts 50 and 51, renew the license without further notice. As required by 10 CFR 2.309, a petition for leave to intervene shall set forth with the particular interest of the petitioner in the proceeding, and how that interest may be affected by the results of the proceeding. The petition must specifically explain the reasons why intervention should be permitted with particular reference to the following factors: (1) The nature of the requestor’s/petitioner’s right under the Atomic Energy Act to be made a party to the proceeding; (2) the nature and extent of the requestor’s/petitioner’s property, financial, or other interest in the proceeding; and (3) the possible effect of any decision or order which may be entered in the proceeding on the requestor’s/petitioner’s interest. The petition must also set forth the specific contentions which the petitioner/ requestor seeks to have litigated at the proceeding.

[[Page 58488]]

Application for Facility Operating License; Kansas State University,'' 
was published in the Federal Register on October 11, 2002 (67 FR 
63457). Because the license renewal application was timely filed under 
10 CFR 2.109, the license will not be deemed to have expired until the 
license renewal application has been finally determined.
    The Commission's staff has determined that KSU has submitted 
sufficient information in accordance with 10 CFR 50.33 and 50.34 that 
the application is acceptable for docketing. The current Docket No. 50-
188 for Facility License No. R-88, will be retained. The docketing of 
the renewal application does not preclude requesting additional 
information as the review proceeds, nor does it predict whether the 
Commission will grant or deny the application. Prior to a decision to 
renew the license, the Commission will have made findings required by 
the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the 
Commission's rules and regulations.
    Within thirty (30) days after the date of publication of this 
Federal Register Notice, the applicant may file a request for a 
hearing, 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 with respect to the renewal of the license. Requests for a 
hearing and a petition for leave to intervene shall be filed in 
accordance with the Commission's ``Rules of Practice for Domestic

or a petition for leave to intervene is filed within the 30-day period, 
the Commission or a presiding officer designated by the Commission or 
by the Chief Administrative Judge of the Atomic Safety and Licensing 
Board Panel will rule on the request and/or petition; and the Secretary 
or the Chief Administrative Judge of the Atomic Safety and Licensing 
Board will issue a notice of a hearing or an appropriate order. In the 
event that no request for a hearing or petition for leave to intervene 
is filed within the 30-day period, the NRC may, upon completion of its 
evaluations and upon making the findings required under 10 CFR parts 50 
and 51, renew the license without further notice.
    As required by 10 CFR 2.309, a petition for leave to intervene 
shall set forth with the particular interest of the petitioner in the 
proceeding, and how that interest may be affected by the results of the

intervention should be permitted with particular reference to the 
following factors: (1) The nature of the requestor's/petitioner's right 
under the Atomic Energy Act to be made a party to the proceeding; (2) 
the nature and extent of the requestor's/petitioner's property, 
financial, or other interest in the proceeding; and (3) the possible 
effect of any decision or order which may be entered in the proceeding 
on the requestor's/petitioner's interest. The petition must also set 
forth the specific contentions which the petitioner/requestor seeks to 
have litigated at the proceeding.
    Each contention must consist of a specific statement of the issue 
of law or fact to be raised or controverted. In addition, the
