ACTION: Petition for rulemaking; consideration of petition. AGENCY: On November 2, 2001 (66 FR 55603), the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published for public comment a petition for rulemaking (PRM) filed by Scott Portzline, Three Mile Island Alert. The petitioner requested that the NRC regulations governing physical protection of plants and materials be amended to require NRC licensees to post at least one armed guard at each entrance to the ‘‘owner controlled areas’’ (OCAs) surrounding all U.S. nuclear power plants. The petitioner states that this should be accomplished by adding armed site protection officers (SPOs) to the security forces—not by simply moving SPOs from their protected area (PA) posts to the OCA entrances. The petitioner believes that its proposed amendment would provide an additional layer of security that would complement existing measures against radiological sabotage and would be consistent with the long-standing principle of defensein-depth. cprice-sewell on PROD1PC66 with PROPOSALS SUMMARY: VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:47 Jan 04, 2007 Jkt 211001 This document informs the public that PRM–73–11 and public comments received in response to the above notice will be considered in a proposed rulemaking, ‘‘Power Reactor Security Requirements,’’ published in the Federal Register on October 26, 2006 (71 FR 62664).

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: SUMMARY: We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for the PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 481 products listed above. This proposed AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as a deficiency in compliance with 14 CFR 23.967(d). There have been instances indicating that production aircraft may not have a metal barrier between the cabin and the fuel tank bay. Lack of a barrier could allow flammable fuel vapors to enter the cabin. The proposed AD would require actions that are intended to address the unsafe condition described in the MCAI. DATES: We must receive comments on this proposed AD by February 5, 2007. ADDRESSES: You may send comments by any of the following methods: • DOT Docket Web Site: Go to http://dms.dot.gov and follow the instructions for sending your comments electronically. • Fax: (202) 493–2251. • Mail: Docket Management Facility, U.S. Department of Transportation, 400 Seventh Street, SW., Nassif Building, Room PL–401, Washington, DC 20590– 0001. • Hand Delivery: Room PL–401 on the plaza level of the Nassif Building, 400 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. • Federal eRulemaking Portal: http:// www.regulations.gov. Follow the instructions for submitting comments. Examining the AD Docket You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at http://dms.dot.gov; or in person at the Docket Management Facility between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. The AD docket contains this proposed AD, the regulatory evaluation, any comments received, and other information. The street address for the Docket Office (telephone (800) 647– 5227) is in the ADDRESSES section. Comments will be available in the AD docket shortly after receipt.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Streamlined Issuance of AD The FAA is implementing a new process for streamlining the issuance of ADs related to MCAI. The streamlined process will allow us to adopt MCAI safety requirements in a more efficient manner and will reduce safety risks to E:\FR\FM\05JAP1.SGM 05JAP1

NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION

10 CFR Part 73

[Docket No. PRM-73-11]


Petition for Rulemaking Filed by Scott Portzline, Three Mile 
Island Alert; Consideration of Petition

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Petition for rulemaking; consideration of petition.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On November 2, 2001 (66 FR 55603), the Nuclear Regulatory 
Commission (NRC) published for public comment a petition for rulemaking 
(PRM) filed by Scott Portzline, Three Mile Island Alert. The petitioner 
requested that the NRC regulations governing physical protection of 
plants and materials be amended to require NRC licensees to post at 
least one armed guard at each entrance to the ``owner controlled 
areas'' (OCAs) surrounding all U.S. nuclear power plants. The 
petitioner states that this should be accomplished by adding armed site 
protection officers (SPOs) to the security forces--not by simply moving 
SPOs from their protected area (PA) posts to the OCA entrances. The 
petitioner believes that its proposed amendment would provide an 
additional layer of security that would complement existing measures 
against radiological sabotage and would be consistent with the long-
standing principle of defense-in-depth.
    This document informs the public that PRM-73-11 and public comments 
received in response to the above notice will be considered in a 
proposed rulemaking, ``Power Reactor Security Requirements,'' published 
in the Federal Register on October 26, 2006 (71 FR 62664). This 
rulemaking proposes extensive revisions to the NRC regulations in 10 
CFR parts 50, 72, and 73 that address security requirements for nuclear 
power reactor licensees and certain materials licensees. The comment 
period on that proposed rule expires on February 23, 2007. Because the 
public has already had opportunity to comment on PRM-73-11, the NRC is 
requesting that comments focus on the proposed rule provisions in light 
of the subject PRM. Refer to the preamble of the proposed rule for 
instructions on how to provide comments.
