SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Petition

    The petitioner requested that the NRC issue an order to enjoin the

amend its regulations so that the regulations do not suppress and/or 
eliminate a stakeholder's right to redress, due process and equal 
protection in the licensing renewal process.

Reasons for Denial

of Brick Township, New Jersey in PRM-54-3 (December 13, 2006; 72 FR

That the Commission already considered at length in developing the 
license renewal rule (December 13, 1991; 56 FR 64943); (2) that are 
managed by the ongoing regulatory process or under other regulations; 
or (3) that are beyond the Commission's regulatory authority.
    The petitioner did not present any new information that contradicts 
positions taken by the Commission when the December 13, 1991, 
regulation was established or demonstrates that sufficient reason 
exists to modify the current regulations.
    For the reasons cited in this document, the NRC denies this 
petition.
