Section 3116 of the NDAA allows the DOE to determine that the term ‘‘high-level radioactive waste’’ (HLW) does not include certain waste stemming from reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel. The NDAA is applicable only in the states of South Carolina and Idaho and does not apply to waste transported out of these states. The NDAA requires that: (1) DOE consult with NRC concerning DOE’s waste determinations in South Carolina and Idaho, and (2) NRC, in coordination with the State, monitor such disposal E:\FR\FM\10JYN1.SGM 10JYN1 37548 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 131 / Tuesday, July 10, 2007 / Notices actions taken by DOE for the purpose of assessing compliance with performance objectives in 10 CFR Part 61, Subpart C.

On November 16, 2006, NRC and DOE conducted a public meeting to discuss interactions during the review of nonHLW determinations prepared under the NDAA. During that meeting, NRC and DOE committed to conduct a future meeting to discuss the progress that has been made since the November 2006 public meeting.

The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change, as amended, from interested persons. I.

Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, the Exchange included statements concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule change, and discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change.

This SROT Fee Rebate Program will provide fee rebates to SROTs that provide order flow to the Exchange from their own firm’s orders.6 This proposal would allow the Exchange to provide SROTs with options transaction fee rebates for the number of options contracts that are electronically directed to them and executed on the Exchange.

Background

    On October 28, 2004, the Ronald W. Reagan National Defense 
Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005 (NDAA) was signed by the 
President. Section 3116 of the NDAA allows the DOE to determine that 
the term ``high-level radioactive waste'' (HLW) does not include 
certain waste stemming from reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel. The 
NDAA is applicable only in the states of South Carolina and Idaho and 
does not apply to waste transported out of these states. The NDAA 
requires that: (1) DOE consult with NRC concerning DOE's waste 
determinations in South Carolina and Idaho, and (2) NRC, in 
coordination with the State, monitor such disposal

[[Page 37548]]

actions taken by DOE for the purpose of assessing compliance with 
performance objectives in 10 CFR Part 61, Subpart C. If the NRC 
determines that any such disposal actions taken by DOE are not in 
compliance with those performance objectives, the NDAA requires NRC to 
inform DOE, the affected State, and congressional committees.
    On November 16, 2006, NRC and DOE conducted a public meeting to 
discuss interactions during the review of non-HLW determinations 
prepared under the NDAA. During that meeting, NRC and DOE committed to 
conduct a future meeting to discuss the progress that has been made 
since the November 2006 public meeting. During the upcoming public 
meeting cited in this Notice, NRC and DOE will: (1) Discuss the 
progress they have made since November 2006; (2) provide information 
regarding the content and outcome of interactions held to date; (3) 
address progress in exchanging information concerning generic technical 
issues related to DOE's performance assessments; and (4) provide 
information on monitoring plans and related activities.
    As noted on the agenda, time will be set aside during this meeting 
for observers who wish to make comments. After the meeting, a publicly 
available summary of this meeting will be made available on the NRC's 
Agency-wide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) at 
www.nrc.gov.
