Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is withdrawing Regulatory Guide 9.1, ‘‘Regulatory Staff Position Statement on Antitrust Matters,’’ published December 1973; Regulatory Guide 9.2, ‘‘Information Needed by the NRC Staff in Connection with its Antitrust Review of Construction Permit Applications for Nuclear Power Plants,’’ initially published October 1974, and revised June 1976; and Regulatory Guide 9.3, ‘‘Information Needed by the AEC Regulatory Staff in Connection with its Antitrust Review of Operating License Applications for Nuclear Power Plants,’’ published October 1974. The NRC is withdrawing these three regulatory guides because they are no longer required. These three regulatory guides address the antitrust review conducted by the staff during the evaluation of new plant construction and operating license applications. The review was required by Section 105.c of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended. Section 625 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (Pub. L. 109–058) removed the NRC’s authority to perform these antitrust reviews for applications submitted after the date of enactment of the law. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 was passed by the U.S. Congress on July 29, 2005, and signed into law by President George W. Bush on August 8, 2005. Consequently, the staff has determined that Regulatory Guides 9.1, 9.2, and 9.3 are no longer required. II. Further Information The withdrawal of Regulatory Guides 9.1, 9.2, and 9.3 does not, in and of itself, alter any prior or existing licensing commitments based on their use. The guidance provided in these regulatory guides is no longer applicable. Regulatory guides may be withdrawn when their guidance is superseded by congressional action or otherwise no longer provides useful information.

Iusacell Celular asks the Commission to exempt from the certificate or opinion delivery requirements of section 314(d) of the 1939 Act certain provisions of indentures between Iusacell Celular, certain guarantors and Law Debenture Trust Company of New York, as trustee. The indentures relate to Senior Floating Rate First Lien Notes due 2011 and 10% Senior Subordinated Second Lien Notes due 2012. PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 59575 Section 304(d) of the 1939 Act, in part, authorizes the Commission to exempt conditionally or unconditionally any indenture from one or more provisions of the 1939 Act. The Commission may provide an exemption under Section 304(d) if it finds that the exemption is necessary or appropriate in the public interest and consistent with the protection of investors and the purposes fairly intended by the 1939 Act. Section 314(d) requires the obligor to furnish to the indenture trustee certificates or opinions of fair value from an engineer, appraiser or other expert upon any release of collateral from the lien of the indenture. The engineer, appraiser or other expert must opine that the proposed release will not impair the security under the indenture in contravention of the provisions of the indenture. The application requests an exemption from Section 314(d) for specified dispositions of collateral that are made in Iusacell Celular’s and the guarantors’ ordinary course of business. In its application, Iusacell Celular alleges that: 1. The indentures permit Iusacell Celular and the guarantors to dispose of collateral in the ordinary course of their business; 2. Iusacell Celular and the guarantors will deliver to the trustee annual consolidated financial statements audited by certified independent accountants; and 3. Iusacell Celular and the guarantors will deliver to the trustee a semi-annual certificate stating that all dispositions of collateral during the relevant six-month period occurred in Iusacell Celular’s and the guarantors’ ordinary course of business and that all of the proceeds were used as permitted by the indentures. Any interested persons should look to the application for a more detailed statement of the asserted matters of fact and law. The application is on file in the Commission’s Public Reference Section, File Number 22–28859, 100 F Street, NE., Washington, DC 20549. The Commission also gives notice that any interested persons may request, in writing, that a hearing be held on this matter. Interested persons must submit those requests to the Commission no later than November 14, 2007. Interested persons must include the following in their request for a hearing on this matter: —The nature of that person’s interest; —The reasons for the request; and —The issues of law or fact raised by the application that the interested person desires to refute or request a hearing on.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is withdrawing 
Regulatory Guide 9.4, ``Suggested Format for Cash Flow Statements 
Submitted as Guarantees of Payment of Retrospective Premiums,'' which 
was issued for comment in September 1978. Regulatory Guide 9.4 proposes 
a format for cash flow statements to be submitted by the licensee to 
demonstrate compliance with title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations 
(10 CFR), subpart 140.21, ``Licensee guarantees of payment of deferred 
premiums.'' The method described in Regulatory Guide 9.4 unnecessarily 
duplicates other financial and insurance verification documents 
submitted by the licensees to demonstrate compliance with other 
sections of 10 CFR part 140. Rather than submit separate cash flow and 
financial assurance statements, licensees may submit proof of 
sufficient insurance bonding through American Nuclear Insurers or 
similar insurance groups. This insurance bond meets the requirements of 
10 CFR 140.21(a) and eliminates the need for a separate cash flow 
statement.
