Introduction National Science Board—Committee on Strategy and Budget; Sunshine Act Meetings; Notice jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION The U. S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has received, by letter dated April 2, 2007, a license renewal application from Global Nuclear Fuel–Americas, LLC (GNF—A), requesting renewal of License No. SNM–1097 for its fuel fabrication facility located in Wilmington, North Carolina. License No. SNM–1097 authorizes the licensee to possess and use special nuclear material for the manufacture of fuel for nuclear power plants. The Wilmington facility has been licensed by the Atomic Energy Commission and its successor, the NRC, to manufacture low-enriched uranium fuel for nuclear power plants. The license was renewed in 1997 for a period of 10 years, expiring on June 30, 2007. By application dated April 2, 2007, GNF—A requested renewal of their license for a period of 40 years. The application addresses various topics, including ones related to emergency planning and physical security. The NRC will review the license renewal application for compliance with applicable safety requirements set forth in NRC regulations in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), which implement the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended. The license renewal application included an Environmental Report, which the NRC will review in its evaluation of environmental issues, as required by 10 CFR Part 51, Environmental Protection Regulations The National Science Board’s Committee on Strategy and Budget, pursuant to NSF regulations (45 CFR part 614), the National Science Foundation Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. 1862n–5 and 1863(k)), and the Government in the Sunshine Act (5 U.S.C. 552b), hereby gives notice in regard to the scheduling of a meeting for the transaction of National Science Board business and other matters specified, as follows: DATE AND TIME: Monday, June 18, 2007, 11 a.m. SUBJECT MATTER: Discussion of the FY 2009 National Science Foundation Budget. STATUS: Closed. This meeting will be held by teleconference originating from the National Science Board Office, National Science Foundation, 4201 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, VA 22230. Please refer to the National Science Board Web site (http://www.nsf.gov/nsb) for information or schedule updates, or contact: Annette M. Dreher, National Science Board Office, 4201 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, VA 22230. Telephone: (703) 292–7000. Russell Moy, Attorney Advisor. [FR Doc.

An NRC administrative review, documented in a letter to GNF-A dated May 14, 2007 (ML071170603), found the application acceptable to begin the NRC’s more detailed technical review. Because GNF-A filed the application for renewal not less than thirty (30) days before the expiration of the date stated in the existing license, the existing license will not expire until the Commission makes a final determination on the renewal application, in accordance with the timely renewal provision of 10 CFR 70.38(a)(1). If the NRC approves the renewal application, the approval will be documented in NRC License No. SNM–1097. However, as indicated above, before approving the proposed renewal, the NRC will make the findings required by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, and NRC’s regulations. The safety findings will be documented in a Safety Evaluation Report. II. Opportunity To Request a Hearing The NRC hereby provides notice that this is a proceeding on an application for a license renewal. In accordance with the general requirements in Subpart C of 10 CFR Part 2, as amended on January 14, 2004 (69 FR 2182), any person whose interest may be affected by this proceeding and who desires to participate as a party, must file a written request for a hearing and a specification of the contentions which the person seeks to have litigated in the hearing.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The U. S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has received, by 
letter dated April 2, 2007, a license renewal application from Global 
Nuclear Fuel-Americas, LLC (GNF--A), requesting renewal of License No. 
SNM-1097 for its fuel fabrication facility located in Wilmington, North 
Carolina. License No. SNM-1097 authorizes the licensee to possess and 
use special nuclear material for the manufacture of fuel for nuclear 
power plants.
    The Wilmington facility has been licensed by the Atomic Energy 
Commission and its successor, the NRC, to manufacture low-enriched 
uranium fuel for nuclear power plants. The license was renewed in 1997 
for a period of 10 years, expiring on June 30, 2007. By application 
dated April 2, 2007, GNF--A requested renewal of their license for a 
period of 40 years. The application addresses various topics, including 
ones related to emergency planning and physical security. The NRC will 
review the license renewal application for compliance with applicable 
safety requirements set forth in NRC regulations in Title 10 of the 
Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), which implement the Atomic Energy 
Act of 1954, as amended. The license renewal application included an 
Environmental Report, which the NRC will review in its evaluation of 
environmental issues, as required by 10 CFR Part 51, Environmental 
Protection Regulations for Domestic Licensing and Related Regulatory 
Functions, and the National Environmental Policy Act.
    An NRC administrative review, documented in a letter to GNF-A dated 
May 14, 2007 (ML071170603), found the application acceptable to begin 
the NRC's more detailed technical review. Because GNF-A filed the 
application for renewal not less than thirty (30) days before the 
expiration of the date stated in the existing license, the existing 
license will not expire until the Commission makes a final 
determination on the renewal application, in accordance with the timely 
renewal provision of 10 CFR 70.38(a)(1). If the NRC approves the 
renewal application, the approval will be documented in NRC License No. 
SNM-1097. However, as indicated above, before approving the proposed 
renewal, the NRC will make the findings required by the Atomic Energy 
Act of 1954, as amended, and NRC's regulations. The safety findings 
will be documented in a Safety Evaluation Report.

II. Opportunity To Request a Hearing

    The NRC hereby provides notice that this is a proceeding on an 
application for a license renewal. In accordance with the general 
requirements in Subpart C of 10 CFR Part 2, as amended on January 14,

exists with the applicant on a material issue of law or fact. This 
information must include references to specific portions of the license

those contentions or file new contentions if there are data or 
conclusions in the NRC draft, or final environmental analysis, or any 
supplements relating thereto, that differ significantly from the data 
or conclusions in the applicant's documents. Otherwise, contentions may 
be amended or new contentions filed after the initial filing only with 
leave of the presiding officer.
    Each contention is to be given a separate numeric or alpha
