Download as PDF rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 118 / Wednesday, June 18, 2008 / Notices for at least three years to petition the NIGC for a certificate of self-regulation for its class II gaming operations. The NIGC will issue the certificate if it determines from available information that the tribe has conducted its gaming activity in a manner which has resulted in an effective and honest accounting of all revenues, a reputation for safe, fair, and honest operation of the activity, and an enterprise free of evidence of criminal or dishonest activity. The tribe must also have adopted and implemented proper accounting, licensing, and enforcement systems and conducted the gaming operation on a fiscally or economically sound basis. The implementing regulation of the NIGC, 25 CFR part 518, requires a tribe interested in receiving the certificate to file a petition with the NIGC describing, generally, the tribe’s gaming operations, its regulatory process, its uses of net gaming revenue, and its accounting and record keeping systems for the gaming operation. The tribe must also provide copies of various documents in support of the petition. Submission of the petition and supporting documentation is voluntary. The NIGC will use the information submitted by the respondent tribe determining on whether to issue the certificate of selfregulation. Those tribes who have been issued a certificate of self-regulation are required to submit annually a report to the NIGC. Such report shall set forth information to establish that the tribe has continuously met the eligibility requirements of 25 CFR part 518.2 and the approval requirements of 25 CFR part 518.4 and shall include a report with supporting documentation which explains how tribal gaming revenues were used in accordance with the requirements of 25 U.S.C. 2710(b)(2)(B). Brief Description of Collection: This collection is voluntary for those tribes petitioning for a certificate of selfregulation and mandatory for those tribes who hold a certificate of selfregulation according to statutory regulations, and the benefit to the respondents is a reduction of the amount of fees assessed on class II gaming revenue by the NIGC. Respondents: Tribal governments; tribes who hold certificates of selfregulation; petition submission is voluntary; annual report submission is mandatory. Estimated Number of Voluntary Respondents: 0. Estimated Time per Voluntary Response: 0. Frequency of Response: At will. Estimated Total Annual Hourly Burden to Voluntary Respondents: 0. VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:01 Jun 17, 2008 Jkt 214001 Number of Mandatory Respondents: 2. Estimated Time per Mandatory Response: 50. Frequency of Mandatory Response: Annual. Estimated Total Annual Hourly Burden to Mandatory Respondents: 100. Title: Minimum Internal Control Standards OMB Control Number: 3141–0009 Background: The Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (25 U.S.C. 2701 et seq.) (IGRA) governs the regulation of gaming on Indian lands. Although the IGRA places primary responsibility with the tribes for regulating gaming, Section 2706(b) directs the NIGC to monitor gaming conducted on Indian lands on a continuing basis. IGRA authorizes the NIGC to access and inspect all papers, books and records relating to gaming conducted on Indian lands. In accordance with these statutory responsibilities, 25 CFR 542.3(c) requires Class II and limited Class III Indian tribal gaming regulatory authorities to establish and implement tribal internal control standards that provide a level of control that equals or exceeds those set out in part 542, establishing internal control standards. 25 CFR 542.3(d) requires each affected gaming operation to develop and implement internal control standards that, at a minimum, comply with the tribal internal control standards established by the tribal gaming regulatory authority. Brief Description of Collection: This collection is mandatory according to statutory regulations, and allows the NIGC to confirm tribal compliance with the standards contained in the AgreedUpon-Procedures report. Respondents: Tribal governing bodies Estimated Number of Respondents: 387 Estimated Time per Response: 1 hour Frequency of Response: Annually Estimated Total Annual Hourly Burden to Respondents: 387 hours Dated: June 12, 2008.

ACTION: Notice of consideration of request from Rio Algom Mining LLC for consent to transfer of materials license and the opportunity to request a hearing. AGENCY: A request for a hearing must be filed by July 8, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Thomas McLaughlin, Project Manager, Materials Decommissioning Branch, Division of Waste Management and Environmental Protection, Office of Federal and State Materials and Environmental Management Programs, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, D.C., 20555. Telephone: (301) 415–5869; fax number: (301) 415– 5369; e-mail: tgm@nrc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: I. Introduction The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering an application from Rio Algom Mining LLC (RAML), submitted December 18, 2007, requesting approval of an indirect change of control with respect to materials license SUA–1473. RAML’s parent company Billiton Investment 15 B.V. (BIBV), plans to sell its entire ownership interest in RAML to Uranium Resources, Inc. (URI). BIBV currently owns one hundred percent (100%) of RAML. On October 12, 2007, BIBV entered into a Purchase Agreement with HRI–RAML Acquisition LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and an indirect subsidiary of URI, pursuant to which HRI–RAML Acquisition LLC will acquire from BIBV all of the interest in RAML. Consummation of the transaction will result in the indirect transfer of control of RAML and license SUA–1473 from BIBV to URI. RAML is requesting that the NRC consent to this indirect change of control. RAML’s application states that there would be no change to RAML’s operations, key operating personnel or licensed activities as a result of the transaction and the indirect change of control. RAML would continue to be the holder of license SUA–1473 after the PO 00000 Frm 00101 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 closing of the transaction and the indirect change of control. RAML will remain technically and financially qualified as the licensee and will continue to fulfill all responsibilities as the licensee. The applicant states that no amendment to the License will be necessary in connection with the request for consent. Pursuant to 10 CFR 40.46, no Part 40 license shall be transferred, assigned or in any manner disposed of, either voluntarily or involuntarily, directly or indirectly, through transfer of control of the license to any person, unless the Commission, after securing full information, finds that the transfer is in accordance with the provisions of the Atomic Energy Act, and gives its consent in writing. An Environmental Assessment (EA) will not be performed for this proposed action because it falls within a class of actions categorically excluded from the requirement to perform an EA pursuant to 10 CFR 51.22(c)(21). Approval of the indirect change of control is contingent upon receipt of the fully executed financial assurance instruments which are in form and substance satisfactory to NRC. Upon receipt of such instruments, the NRC staff plans to approve the December 18, 2007, application by issuing the necessary order, along with a supporting safety evaluation report. II. Opportunity To Request a Hearing Any person whose interest may be affected if the December 18, 2007, application is approved, and who desires to participate as a party in an NRC adjudicatory hearing, must file a request for a hearing. The hearing request must include a specification of the contentions which the person seeks to have litigated in the hearing, and must be filed in accordance with the NRC E-Filing rule, which the NRC promulgated in August, 2007, 72 FR 49139, (August 28, 2007). The E-Filing rule requires participants to submit and serve documents over the internet or in some cases to mail copies on electronic storage media. Participants may not submit paper copies of their filings unless they seek a waiver in accordance with the procedures described below. To comply with the procedural requirements of E-Filing, at least ten (10) days prior to the filing deadline, the petitioner/requestor must contact the Office of the Secretary by e-mail at HEARINGDOCKET@NRC.GOV, or by calling (301) 415–1677, to request (1) a digital identification (ID) certificate , which allows the participant (or its counsel or representative) to digitally sign documents and access the E- E:\FR\FM\18JNN1.SGM 18JNN1
