SUMMARY: The Federal Emergency Management Agency, as part of its 
continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites 
the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity 
to comment on a continuing information collection. In accordance with 
the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this notice seeks comments 
concerning FEMA's request for information from the licensee of a 
nuclear power plant that is needed in order to form a decision as to 
whether or not a condition of ``decline or fail'' exists at the state 
and local government level in the preparation of emergency planning 
responses.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Executive Order 12657, dated November 18, 
1988, charged the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and other 
Federal agencies with emergency planning response in cases where State 
and local governments have declined or failed to prepare emergency 
plans. To implement Executive Order 12657, FEMA worked with the Nuclear 
Regulatory Commission (NRC) and other Federal agencies on the Federal 
Radiological Preparedness Coordinating Committee to develop regulation 
44 CFR 352, Commercial Nuclear Power Plants: Emergency Preparedness 
Planning. This regulation establishes policies and procedures for a 
licensee submission of a certification of ``decline or fail,'' and for 
FEMA determination concerning Federal assistance to the licensee; and 
also establishes policies and procedures for providing Federal support 
for offsite planning and preparedness.

NRC as to whether the licensee has made maximum use of its resources 
and the extent to which the licensee has complied with 10 CFR 50.47
