Environmental Impacts of the Proposed Action The NRC staff reviewed the information provided and surveys performed by the licensee to demonstrate that the release of the facility is consistent with the radiological criteria for unrestricted use specified in 10 CFR 20.1402. Based on its review, the staff determined that there were no radiological impacts associated with the proposed action because no radiological remediation activities were required to complete the proposed action, and that the radiological criteria for unrestricted use in § 20.1402 have been met. Based on its review, the staff determined that the radiological environmental impacts from the proposed action for the Building L facility are bounded by the ‘‘Generic Environmental Impact Statement in Support of Rulemaking on Radiological Criteria for License Termination of NRCLicensed Nuclear Facilities’’ (NUREG– 1496). Additionally, no non-radiological or cumulative impacts were identified. Therefore, the NRC has determined that the proposed action will not have a significant effect on the quality of the human environment. Agencies and Persons Consulted The NRC staff has determined that the proposed action will not affect listed species or critical habitats. Therefore, no further consultation is required under Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act. Likewise, the NRC staff has determined that the proposed action is not a type of activity that has potential to cause effect on historic properties. Therefore, consultation under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act is not required. The NRC consulted with Mr. Keith Henke, Planner, Division of Community and Public Health, Office of Emergency Coordination, Department of Health and Senior Services. Mr. Henke was provided the draft EA for comment on June 27, 2007. Mr. Henke responded to the NRC by e-mail on July 2, 2007, indicating that the State had no additional comments for the Aptiut, Inc. NRC Environmental Assessment for the release of the licensee’s Building L. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Alternatives to the Proposed Action The only alternative to the proposed action is to take no action. Under the no-action alternative, the licensee’s facility would remain under an NRC license and would not be released for unrestricted use. Denial of the license amendment request would result in no change to current conditions at the Building L facility. The no-action alternative is not acceptable because it is inconsistent with 10 CFR 30.36, which requires licensees who have ceased licensed activities in a particular building to begin decommissioning activities or submit a decommissioning plan, which upon approval, will be used to conduct decommissioning activities. This alternative would impose an unnecessary regulatory burden in controlling access to the former Building L facility, and limit potential benefits from the future use of the facility. Conclusion The NRC staff concluded that the proposed action is consistent with the NRC’s unrestricted release criteria specified in 10 CFR 20.1402. Because the proposed action will not significantly impact the quality of the human environment, the NRC staff VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:05 Jul 12, 2007 Jkt 211001 II. Finding of No Significant Impact On the basis of the EA in support of the proposed license amendment to release the facility for unrestricted use, the NRC has determined that the proposed action will not have a significant effect on the quality of the human environment. Thus, the NRC has not prepared an environmental impact statement for the proposed action. III.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Variable-Rate Premiums Section 4006(a)(3)(E)(iii)(II) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) and 4006.4(b)(1) of the PBGC’s regulation on Premium Rates (29 CFR part 4006) prescribe use of an assumed interest rate (the ‘‘required interest rate’’) in determining PO 00000 Frm 00082 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 a single-employer plan’s variable-rate premium. Pursuant to the Pension Protection Act of 2006, for premium payment years beginning in 2006 or 2007, the required interest rate is the ‘‘applicable percentage’’ of the annual rate of interest determined by the Secretary of the Treasury on amounts invested conservatively in long-term investment grade corporate bonds for the month preceding the beginning of the plan year for which premiums are being paid (the ‘‘premium payment year’’).

As a result, in accordance with section 4006(a)(3)(E)(iii)(II) of ERISA, the ‘‘applicable percentage’’ to be used in determining the required interest rate for plan years beginning in 2007 is 100 percent. The required interest rate to be used in determining variable-rate premiums for premium payment years beginning in July 2007 is 6.32 percent (i.e., 100 percent of the 6.32 percent composite corporate bond rate for June 2007 as determined by the Treasury).

the Federal Activities Inventory Reform Act

AGENCY: Office of Management and Budget, Executive Office of the 
President.

ACTION: Notice of Public Availability of Agency Inventory of Activities

Inherently Governmental.

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

SUMMARY: The Federal Activities Inventory Reform (FAIR) Act, Public Law

activities performed by their employees that are not inherently 
governmental--i.e., inventories of commercial activities. The FAIR Act 
further requires OMB to review the inventories in consultation with the 
agencies and publish a notice of public availability in the Federal 
Register after the consultation process is completed. In accordance 
with the FAIR Act, OMB is publishing this notice to announce the 
availability of inventories from the agencies listed below. These 
inventories identify both commercial activities and activities that are 
inherently governmental.

activities that are not inherently governmental within 30 working days 
and, if not satisfied with this review, may appeal to a higher level 
within the agency.
