Notice of Effective Dates, 46057-46058 [E8-18216]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 153 / Thursday, August 7, 2008 / Notices Millstone 3 SPU is bounded by the analysis of the environmental effects of the transportation of fuel and waste as described in the ‘‘Extended Burnup Fuel Use in Commercial [Light Water Reactors] LWRs; Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact,’’ dated February 29, 1988 (53 FR 6040). sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Summary Based on the NRC staff review of licensee’s submission, it is concluded that the proposed SPU would not result in a significant increase in occupational or public radiation exposure, and would not result in significant additional fuel cycle environmental impacts. Accordingly, the NRC staff concludes that there would be no significant radiological environmental impacts associated with the proposed action. Environmental Impacts of the Alternatives to the Proposed Action As an alternative to the proposed action, the NRC staff considered denial of the proposed SPU (i.e., the ‘‘noaction’’ alternative). Denial of the application would result in no change in the current environmental impacts. However, if the proposed SPU were not approved, other agencies and electric power organizations may be required to pursue alternative means of providing electric generation capacity to offset the increased power demand forecasted for the ISO–NE regional transmission territory. A reasonable alternative to the proposed SPU would be to purchase power from other generators in the ISO– NE network. In 2008, generating capacity in ISO–NE consisted primarily of Combined-cycle generators: combined-cycle generated 37.8 percent of ISO–NE capacity; fossil—29.9 percent; nuclear—13.6 percent; hydroelectric—10.4 percent; combustion turbine—7.4 percent; diesel—0.7 percent; and miscellaneous—0.2 percent. This indicates that the majority of purchased power in the ISO–NE territory would likely be generated by a combined-cycle facility. Construction (if new generation is needed) and operation of a combinedcycle plant would create impacts in air quality, land use, and waste management significantly greater than those identified for the proposed SPU at Millstone 3. Millstone 3 does not emit sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, carbon dioxide, or other atmospheric pollutants that are commonly associated with combined-cycle plants. Conservation programs such as demand-side management could feasibly replace the proposed SPU’s additional power VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:49 Aug 06, 2008 Jkt 214001 output. However, forecasted future energy demand in the ISO–NE territory may exceed conservation savings and still require additional generating capacity. Furthermore, the proposed SPU does not involve environmental impacts that are significantly different from those originally identified in the 1984 Millstone Power Station FES for operation. Alternative Use of Resources The action does not involve the use of any different resources than those previously considered in the ‘‘Final Environmental Statement Related to the Operation of Millstone Nuclear Power Station, Unit 3,’’ dated December 1984, or the ‘‘Generic Environmental Impact Statement for License Renewal of Nuclear Power Plants: Regarding Millstone Power Station, Units 2 and 3,’’ dated July 2005. Agencies and Persons Consulted In accordance with its stated policy, on July 11, 2008, via electronic mail, (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML081980598), the NRC staff consulted with the Connecticut State Official, Mr. Denny Galloway of the Department of Environmental Protection, regarding the environmental impact of the proposed action. The state official did not submit comments. Finding of No Significant Impact On the basis of the environmental assessment, the NRC concludes that the proposed action will not have a significant effect on the quality of the human environment. Accordingly, the NRC has determined not to prepare an environmental impact statement for the proposed action. For further details with respect to the proposed action, see the licensee’s letter dated July 13, 2007, as supplemented by letters dated July 13, September 12, November 19, December 13 and 17, 2007, January 10, 11, 14, 18, and 31, February 25, March 5, 10, 25, and 27, April 4, 24, and 29, May 15, 20, and 21, and July 10 and 16, 2008.

Amendment are contained in letters of understanding between the United

Proclamation 8213, as modified by Proclamation 8272, the President 
modified the HTS to implement the Amendment with respect to the CAFTA-
DR parties. These modifications are set forth in sections A, B, and C 
of the Annex to Proclamation 8213, as modified by paragraph 2 of Annex 
VI to Proclamation 8272.
    Proclamations 8213 and 8272 provide for these modifications to 
enter into effect on the date, as announced by the USTR in the Federal 
Register, that the Amendment enters into force, and to be effective 
with respect to goods entered, or withdrawn from warehouse for 
consumption, on or after that date. I anticipate that the Amendment 
will enter into force on August 15, 2008. Accordingly, I announce that 
these modifications to the HTS shall enter into effect on August 15, 
2008.

2. Rule of Origin for Woven Apparel

    Section 203(o) of the CAFTA-DR Implementation Act (19 U.S.C. 
4033(o)) authorizes the President to proclaim, as part of the HTS, the 
provisions set out in Annex 4.1 of the CAFTA-DR. Among these provisions 
is a rule of origin set out in Appendix 4.1-B of the CAFTA-DR that 
provides, subject to certain conditions, for Mexican and Canadian 
inputs to be treated as though they originated in a CAFTA-DR country 
for purposes of determining whether certain woven apparel imported into 
the United States qualifies for duty-free treatment under the 
agreement. In Proclamation 8213, as modified by Proclamation 8272, the 
President modified the HTS to implement this rule of origin. These 
modifications are set forth in section D of the Annex to Proclamation 
8213, as modified by paragraph 1 of Annex VI to Proclamation 8272.
    Proclamations 8213 and 8272 provide for these modifications to the 
HTS to enter into effect on the date, as announced by the USTR in the 
Federal Register, that the Amendment enters into force and the 
conditions set forth in paragraph (a), paragraph (b), or both, of 
footnote 1 to Appendix 4.1-B of the CAFTA-DR have been fulfilled, and 
to be effective with respect to goods entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse for consumption, on or after that date. I anticipate that the 
Amendment will enter into force on August 15, 2008. In addition, all of 
the conditions set forth in paragraph (a) of footnote 1 to Appendix 
4.1-B of the CAFTA-DR have been fulfilled and therefore the rule of 
origin may enter into force with respect to woven apparel containing 
materials produced in Mexico. Accordingly, I announce that these 
modifications to the HTS shall enter into effect on August 15, 2008, 
with respect to materials produced in Mexico.
