The City Public Service Board of San Antonio, and the City of Austin, Texas, co-own the units with Texas Genco but are not involved in this proposed action. STP Nuclear Operating Company (STPNOC) is authorized to act for the owners, and has exclusive responsibility and control over the physical construction, operation, and maintenance of STP. STP Nuclear Operating Company, acting on behalf of Texas Genco and NRG Energy, Inc. (NRG Energy), has requested that the Commission consent to the indirect transfer of control of Texas Genco’s 44 percent interest in STP. NRG Energy and Texas Genco LLC have entered into a definitive agreement for NRG Energy to acquire all of the outstanding equity of Texas Genco LLC, which indirectly owns 100 percent of Texas Genco. Texas Genco and NRG Energy seek NRC consent to the indirect transfer of control of the licenses to the extent held by Texas Genco that will result from NRG Energy’s acquisition of Texas Genco LLC. In addition to its 44 percent undivided ownership interests in STP, Texas Genco holds a corresponding interest in STPNOC, a not-for-profit Texas corporation, which is the licensed operator of STP. Approval of the indirect transfer of control of the licenses to the extent held by STPNOC PO 00000 Frm 00103 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 71561 is also requested to the extent such approval is necessary. No physical changes to STP or operational changes are being proposed in the application. Pursuant to 10 CFR 50.80, no license, or any right thereunder, shall be transferred, directly or indirectly, through transfer of control of the license, unless the Commission shall give its consent in writing. The Commission will approve an application for the transfer of a license, if the Commission determines that the proposed transferee is qualified to hold the license and that the transfer is otherwise consistent with applicable provisions of law, regulations, and orders issued by the Commission pursuant thereto. Before issuance of the proposed conforming 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. The filing of requests for hearing and petitions for leave to intervene, and written comments with regard to the license transfer application, are discussed below. Within 20 days from the date of publication of this notice, any person whose interest may be affected by the Commission’s action on the application may request a hearing and, if not the applicant, may petition for leave to intervene in a hearing proceeding on the Commission’s action. Requests for a hearing and petitions for leave to intervene should be filed in accordance with the Commission’s rules of practice set forth in Subpart C ‘‘Rules of General Applicability: Hearing Requests, Petitions to Intervene, Availability of Documents, Selection of Specific Hearing Procedures, Presiding Officer Powers, and General Hearing Management for NRC Adjudicatory Hearings,’’ of 10 CFR Part 2. In particular, such requests and petitions must comply with the requirements set forth in 10 CFR 2.309. Untimely requests and petitions may be denied, as provided in 10 CFR 2.309(c)(1), unless good cause for failure to file on time is established. In addition, an untimely request or petition should address the factors that the Commission will also consider, in reviewing untimely requests or petitions, set forth in 10 CFR 2.309(c)(1)(i)–(viii). Requests for a hearing and petitions for leave to intervene should be served upon counsel for STPNOC, Mr. John E. Matthews at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, LLP, 1111 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20004 (tel: 202–739– 5524; fax: 202–739–3001; e-mail: jmatthews@morganlewis.com); counsel E:\FR\FM\29NON1.SGM 29NON1
