Sunshine Act Meeting, 41092-41093 [07-3676]

Download as PDF 41092 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 143 / Thursday, July 26, 2007 / Notices radioactive material from the facility located at 789 North Dixboro Road, Ann Arbor, Michigan. The licensee conducted surveys of the facility and provided this information to the NRC to demonstrate that the radiological condition of the Ann Arbor facility is consistent with radiological criteria for unrestricted use in 10 CFR 20.1402. No radiological remediation activities are required to complete the proposed action. Need for the Proposed Action The licensee is requesting this license amendment because it has discontinued licensed activities. The NRC is fulfilling its responsibilities under the Atomic Energy Act to make a decision on the proposed action for decommissioning that ensures that residual radioactivity is reduced to a level that is protective of the public health and safety and the environment, and allows the facility to be released for unrestricted use. rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES 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 Ann Arbor 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 are bounded by the ‘‘Generic Environmental Impact Statement in Support of Rulemaking on Radiological Criteria for License Termination of NRC-Licensed 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. Alternatives to the Proposed Action An 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. This would result in no change to current conditions at the Ann Arbor facility. The no-action alternative is not acceptable because it is inconsistent VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:36 Jul 25, 2007 Jkt 211001 with 10 CFR 30.36, which requires that a licensee who has permanently ceased licensed activities begin decommissioning its facility. This alternative would impose an unnecessary regulatory burden in controlling access to the former Ann Arbor 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 concludes that the proposed action is the preferred alternative. 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. Robert Skowronek, Chief, Radioactive Material and Medical Waste Materials Unit, Waste and Hazardous Materials Division, Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. Mr. Skowronek was provided an electronic draft of the EA for comment on July 9, 2007. Mr. Skowronek responded to the NRC by e-mail on July 10, 2007, indicating that the State had no comments regarding the NRC Environmental Assessment for the release of the licensee’s Ann Arbor facility located at 789 North Dixboro Road. II. Finding of No Significant Impact On the basis of the EA in support of the proposed license amendment to release the site 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, an environmental impact statement for the proposed action is not warranted. III. Further Information Documents related to this action, including the application for amendment and supporting documentation, are available electronically at the NRC’s Electronic Reading Room at http://www.nrc.gov/ PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 reading-rm/adams.html.

Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change Nasdaq proposes to modify pricing for Nasdaq members using the Nasdaq Market Center. Nasdaq will implement this rule change on July 2, 2007. The text of the proposed rule change is available at Nasdaq, www.nasdaq.com, and the Commission’s Public Reference Room. II. 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. The text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION July 20, 2007. (‘‘Act’’) 1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on July 2, 2007, The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (‘‘Nasdaq’’ or ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I, II, and III below, which Items have been substantially prepared by Nasdaq. Nasdaq filed the proposal pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A)(ii) of the Act 3 and Rule 19b–4(f)(2) 4 thereunder, as establishing or changing a due, fee, or other charge applicable to a member, which renders the proposed rule change effective upon filing with the Commission. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. 1.Purpose On June 1, 2007,5 Nasdaq increased its fees for routing orders in securities other than exchange-traded funds to the New York Stock Exchange (‘‘NYSE’’) in instances where the order does not check the Nasdaq book prior to routing. U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. 3 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A)(ii). 4 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(2). 5 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 55979 (June 28, 2007), 72 FR 37065 (July 6, 2007) ((SR– NASDAQ–2007–055) (May 29, 2007)). PO 00000 1 15 2 17 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 41093 Nasdaq also changed its fee schedule to provide that orders that do not attempt to execute in Nasdaq prior to routing to other venues do not count in determining a member’s average daily volume of shares of liquidity accessed and/or routed for purposes of determining the pricing tier applicable to a particular member. Nasdaq is now further amending the fee schedule to increase the fees for orders that check the Nasdaq book but only to the extent of displayed liquidity, rather than for the full size of the order. Market participants using Nasdaq for routing orders have the ability to instruct as to the conditions under which routing should occur. One possibility is to route without checking the Nasdaq book; another is to route after checking the Nasdaq book only to extent of displayed liquidity; and another is to send the full order for execution against the book prior to routing, thereby allowing undisplayed reserved size to be accessed. For example, if displayed size at the inside was 1000 shares and 10,000 shares were in reserve at that price, an order for 10,000 shares could be fully executed in Nasdaq if the full order was sent, but would be routed if the order accessed only the displayed size. Both the changes made in the instant proposed rule change and the changes made in SR–NASDAQ–2007–055 are designed to enhance the quality of Nasdaq’s market by providing an incentive for members to enter orders that check the full size of the Nasdaq book prior to routing. An increase in the extent to which members check the book will in turn encourage liquidity providers to post executable quotes in Nasdaq. Moreover, since there is generally far more undisplayed liquidity than displayed liquidity at the inside price, the proposed change will encourage members to execute their orders in Nasdaq to the fullest extent possible. For orders that check the book only to the extent of displayed interest, the fee will be $0.00035 per share executed when routed to the NYSE for execution and $0.0035 per share executed when routed elsewhere. At the same time, however, Nasdaq is lowering the fee for Directed Intermarket Sweep Orders sent to the NYSE, from $0.0035 to $0.00035 per share executed, in keeping with the overall prevailing level of fees for routing to NYSE. Finally, for the month of July 2007, Nasdaq is lowering: (i) The volume level required for receiving a liquidity provider credit of $0.0025 per share executed from 35 million average daily shares of liquidity provided to 30 E:\FR\FM\26JYN1.SGM 26JYN1
