HNP is located in Wake County, North Carolina. Possible alternatives to the proposed action (license renewal) include no action and reasonable alternative energy sources. As discussed in Section 9.3 of the final Supplement 33, based on: (1) The analysis and findings in the GEIS; (2) the Environmental Report submitted by Carolina Power and Light Company; (3) consultation with federal, state, and local agencies; (4) the NRC staff’s own independent review; and (5) the NRC staff’s consideration of public comments, the recommendation of the staff is that the Commission determine that the adverse environmental impacts of license renewal for HNP are not so great that preserving the option of license renewal for energy-planning decision makers would be unreasonable. The final Supplement 33 to the GEIS is publicly available at the NRC Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852, or from the NRC’s Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS).

The Commission plans to submit these existing collections of information to the Office of Management and Budget for extension and approval. The title for the collection of information is ‘‘Rule 30b1–5 (17 CFR 270.30b1–5) under the Investment PO 00000 Frm 00092 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 49497 Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a–1 et seq.), Quarterly Filing of Schedule of Portfolio Holdings of Registered Management Investment Companies.’’ Rule 30b1–5 under the Investment Company Act of 1940 requires registered management investment companies, other than small business investment companies registered on Form N–5 (17 CFR 239.24 and 274.5) to file a quarterly report via the Commission’s EDGAR system on Form N–Q (17 CFR 249.332 and 274.130), not more than sixty calendar days after the close of each first and third fiscal quarter, containing their complete portfolio holdings. The Commission estimates that there are 2,820 management investment companies and series that are governed by the rule.

The collection of information under Rule 30b1–5 is mandatory. The information provided under Rule 30b1– 5 is not kept confidential. The Commission may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Consideration will be given to comments and suggestions submitted in writing within 60 days of this publication. Please direct your written comments to Lewis W. Walker, Acting Director/ CIO, Securities and Exchange Commission, C/O Shirley Martinson, 6432 General Green Way, Alexandria, VA 22312; or send an e-mail to: PRA_Mailbox@sec.gov.
