Background The Institute of Museum and Library Services is an independent Federal grant-making agency authorized by the Museum and Library Services Act, 20 U.S.C. Section 9101 et seq. The IMLS provides a variety of grant programs to assist the nation’s museums and libraries in improving their operations and enhancing their services to the public. Museums and libraries of all sizes and types may receive support from IMLS programs. The Museum and Library Services Act of 2003 includes a strong emphasis on supporting library services through the development of a strong library workforce. This solicitation is a web-based survey to collect information to assist IMLS understand library and information science (LIS) workforce needs, including supply and demand, factors that affect them, and existing workforce projections. wwhite on PROD1PC61 with NOTICES II. Current Action The core duties of the Institute of Museum and Library Services, as stated in its strategic plan, are to promote excellence in library services and to promote access to museum and library services for a diverse public. This goal will be accomplished in part by promoting improved workforce planning including strategies for recruitment and retention of workers. IMLS is developing specific plans to collect information from libraries, librarians and other information professionals. Information to be collected from libraries includes current and projected employment in terms of numbers of positions (filled and vacant), functional specialization, educational requirements, skill/competency requirements, salaries and benefits, demographics, annual budget/ expenditures, constituency or market size. Information to be collected from LIS professionals includes current employment, career path and career progression, professional association/ union membership and demographics. These information collections will be based on geographic location (state and locality), type of employing organization and functionality of the work. A great deal of information has been collected on the LIS workforce, e.g. by BLS, NCES and professional societies. The information IMLS collects should build on, but not duplicate, existing or ongoing collections. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:55 Dec 22, 2005 Jkt 208001 Agency: Institute of Museum and Library Services.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering the issuance of a license amendment to the Department of Health and Human Services, Food and Drug Administration, Center for Devices and Radiological Health (FDA/CDRH) for Materials License No. 19–07538–01, to authorize release of its facility at 12709 Twinbrook Parkway, Rockville, Maryland for unrestricted use. NRC has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) in support of this proposed action in accordance with the requirements of 10 CFR Part 51. Based on the EA, the NRC has concluded that a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) is appropriate.

EA Summary The purpose of the proposed action is to authorize the release of the licensee’s 12709 Twinbrook Parkway, Rockville, Maryland facility for unrestricted use. FDA/CDRH was authorized by NRC from 1965 to use radioactive materials for research and development purposes at the site. On August 23, 2005, FDA/ CDRH requested that NRC release the facility for unrestricted use. FDA/CDRH has conducted surveys of the facility and provided information to the NRC to demonstrate that the site meets the license termination criteria in Subpart E of 10 CFR Part 20 for unrestricted use. The NRC staff has prepared an EA in support of the license amendment. The facility was remediated and surveyed prior to the licensee requesting the license amendment. The NRC staff has reviewed the information and final status survey submitted by FDA/CDRH. Based on its review, the staff has determined that there are no additional remediation activities necessary to complete the proposed action. Therefore, the staff considered the impact of the residual radioactivity at the facility and concluded that since the residual radioactivity meets the requirements in Subpart E of 10 CFR part 20, a Finding of No Significant Impact is appropriate. wwhite on PROD1PC61 with NOTICES III. Finding of No Significant Impact The staff has prepared the EA (summarized above) in support of the license amendment to terminate the license and release the facility for unrestricted use. The NRC staff has evaluated FDA/CDRH’s request and the results of the surveys and has concluded that the completed action complies with the criteria in Subpart E of 10 CFR Part 20. The staff has found that the radiological environmental impacts from the action are bounded by the impacts evaluated by NUREG–1496, Volumes 1–3, ‘‘Generic Environmental Impact Statement in Support of Rulemaking on Radiological Criteria for License Termination of NRC-Licensed Facilities’’ (ML042310492, ML042320379, and ML042330385). Additionally, no non-radiological or cumulative impacts were identified. On the basis of the EA, the NRC has concluded that there are no significant environmental impacts from the proposed action, and has determined not to prepare an environmental impact statement for the proposed action.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Introduction

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering the 
issuance of a license amendment to the Department of Health and Human 
Services, Food and Drug Administration, Center for Devices and 
Radiological Health (FDA/CDRH) for Materials License No. 19-07538-01, 
to authorize release of its facility at 12709 Twinbrook Parkway, 
Rockville, Maryland for unrestricted use. NRC has prepared an 
Environmental Assessment (EA) in support of this proposed action in 
accordance with the requirements of 10 CFR Part 51. Based on the EA, 
the NRC has concluded that a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) 
is appropriate.

[[Page 76332]]

II. EA Summary

    The purpose of the proposed action is to authorize the release of 
the licensee's 12709 Twinbrook Parkway, Rockville, Maryland facility 
for unrestricted use. FDA/CDRH was authorized by NRC from 1965 to use 
radioactive materials for research and development purposes at the 
site. On August 23, 2005, FDA/CDRH requested that NRC release the 
facility for unrestricted use. FDA/CDRH has conducted surveys of the 
facility and provided information to the NRC to demonstrate that the 
site meets the license termination criteria in Subpart E of 10 CFR Part 
20 for unrestricted use.
    The NRC staff has prepared an EA in support of the license 
amendment. The facility was remediated and surveyed prior to the 
licensee requesting the license amendment. The NRC staff has reviewed 
the information and final status survey submitted by FDA/CDRH. Based on 
its review, the staff has determined that there are no additional 
remediation activities necessary to complete the proposed action. 
Therefore, the staff considered the impact of the residual 
radioactivity at the facility and concluded that since the residual 
radioactivity meets the requirements in Subpart E of 10 CFR part 20, a 
Finding of No Significant Impact is appropriate.

III. Finding of No Significant Impact

    The staff has prepared the EA (summarized above) in support of the 
license amendment to terminate the license and release the facility for 
unrestricted use. The NRC staff has evaluated FDA/CDRH's request and 
the results of the surveys and has concluded that the completed action 
complies with the criteria in Subpart E of 10 CFR Part 20. The staff 
has found that the radiological environmental impacts from the action 
are bounded by the impacts evaluated by NUREG-1496, Volumes 1-3, 
``Generic Environmental Impact Statement in Support of Rulemaking on 
Radiological Criteria for License Termination of NRC-Licensed 
Facilities'' (ML042310492, ML042320379, and ML042330385). Additionally, 
no non-radiological or cumulative impacts were identified. On the basis 
of the EA, the NRC has concluded that there are no significant 
environmental impacts from the proposed action, and has determined not 
to prepare an environmental impact statement for the proposed action.
