NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION

[Docket No. 50-458]


Entergy Gulf States, Inc., River Bend Station, Unit 1; Notice of 
Consideration of Approval of Transfer of Facility Operating License and 
Conforming Amendment and Opportunity for a Hearing

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) is 
considering the issuance of an order under 10 CFR 50.80 approving the 
direct transfer of the Facility Operating License (No. NPF-47) for the 
River Bend Station, Unit 1 (RBS), to the extent currently held by 
Entergy Gulf States, Inc. (EGS), as owner of RBS. The transfer would be 
to Entergy Gulf States Louisiana, L.L.C. (EGS-LA), a Louisiana limited 
liability company. Entergy Operations, Inc. (EOI), the licensed 
operator of the facility, will remain as such and will continue to 
operate RBS. The Commission is also considering amending the license 
for administrative purposes to reflect the proposed transfer.
    According to an application for approval filed by EGS and EOI, both 
EGS and EOI are direct subsidiaries of Entergy Corporation. Under a 
proposed restructuring, EGS will merge into EGS-LA, with EGS-LA being 
the surviving entity. EGS-LA, will own all of EGS' Louisiana assets, 
including RBS, except for EGS' undivided ownership interests in Big 
Cajun, Unit 2 and the Nelson 6 coal plants, which will be jointly owned 
with Entergy Texas, Inc. (ETI), a company to be formed by EGS.
    Once these and other steps of the restructuring are competed, EGS-
LA will serve EGS' current retail customers in Louisiana and EGS' 
current wholesale customers, and ETI will serve EGS' current retail 
customers in Texas. EGS-LA's retail utility operations will be subject 
to the jurisdiction of the Louisiana Public Service Commission (LPSC) 
to the same extent that LPSC currently possesses jurisdiction over EGS' 
retail utility operations. EGS-LA will succeed to and assume all of 
EGS' jurisdictional tariffs, rate schedules, and service agreements, 
and provide electric service to EGS' customers without interruption.
    EOI operates RBS pursuant to an Operating Agreement with EGS. EOI 
will continue to operate RBS and the current Operating Agreement will 
be amended to reflect the new owner of the plant. EOI will not be 
affected by the restructuring.
