Background The Institute of Museum and Library Services is authorized by the Museum and Library Services Act, Public law 108–81, and is the primary source of federal support for the nation’s 122,000 libraries and 17,500 museums. The Institute’s mission is to create strong libraries and museums that connect people to information and ideas. The Institute works at the national level and in coordination with state and local organizations to sustain heritage, culture, and knowledge; enhance learning and innovation; and support professional development. II. Current Actions The purpose of this study is to gather and analyze original data to: (1) better understand achievements, uses, impacts, and remaining needs for its program of annual formula-based library Grants to States from approximately 2003–2007; (2) relate services provided through Grants to States to all library services provided by the State Library Administrative Agencies in this period and understand the contribution of Grants to States to stimulating funding for library services; (3) relate these services to library services and trends in general in this period; and (4) better understand the function and impact of the program in the national context of library services. Once completed, the results of the study will be issued as a report that will be made widely available to inform and benefit libraries, the library research field, and the public at large.

ACTION: Issuance of Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact for License Amendment. AGENCY: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dennis Lawyer, Health Physicist, Commercial and R&D Branch, Division of Nuclear Materials Safety, Region I, 475 Allendale Road, King of Prussia, Pennsylvania; telephone 610–337–5366; fax number 610–337–5393; or by e-mail: drl1@nrc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I.Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering the issuance of a license amendment to Byproduct Materials License No. 06– 30667–02. This license is held by CuraGen Corporation (the Licensee), for its facility located at 322 East Main Street, in Branford, Connecticut (the Facility). Issuance of the amendment would authorize release of the Facility for unrestricted use and termination of the NRC license. The Licensee requested this action in a letter dated July 31, PO 00000 Frm 00104 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2007. The NRC has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) in support of this proposed action in accordance with the requirements of Title 10, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 51 (10 CFR Part 51). Based on the EA, the NRC has concluded that a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) is appropriate with respect to the proposed action. The amendment will be issued to the Licensee following the publication of this FONSI and EA in the Federal Register. II. Environmental Assessment Identification of Proposed Action The proposed action would approve the Licensee’s July 31, 2007, license amendment request, resulting in release of the Facility for unrestricted use and the termination of its NRC materials license. License No. 06–30667–02 was issued on April 8, 2003, pursuant to 10 CFR Part 30, and has been amended periodically since that time. This license authorized the Licensee to use unsealed byproduct material at the Facility for purposes of conducting research and development activities on laboratory bench tops, incubators, and in hoods. The Facility is comprised of a 52,000 square foot building on 3.5 acres of land and consists of general office space and laboratories. Use of licensed materials was confined to 300 square feet of the building known as Area 311B. The Facility is located in a mixed residential/commercial area. Within the Facility, the radionuclides of concern were hydrogen-3 and carbon-14 because their half-lives are greater than 120 days. In October 2004, the Licensee ceased licensed activities at the Facility and initiated survey and decontamination actions there. Based on the Licensee’s historical knowledge of the site and the conditions of the Facility, the Licensee determined that only routine decontamination activities, in accordance with their NRC-approved, operating radiation safety procedures, were required. The Licensee was not required to submit a decommissioning plan to the NRC because worker cleanup activities and procedures are consistent with those approved for routine operations. The Licensee conducted surveys of the Facility and provided information to the NRC to demonstrate that it meets the criteria in Subpart E of 10 CFR Part 20 for unrestricted release and for license termination. Need for the Proposed Action The Licensee has ceased conducting licensed activities at the Facility, and E:\FR\FM\19DEN1.SGM 19DEN1
