In accordance with 10 CFR 51.26, the scoping process for an EIS may include a public scoping meeting to help identify significant issues related to a proposed activity and to determine the scope of issues to be addressed in an EIS. The NRC has decided to hold public meetings for the KPS license renewal supplement to the GEIS. The scoping meetings will be held at the Carlton Town Hall, N 1296 Town Hall Road, Kewaunee, WI 54216 on October 22, 2008. There will be two sessions to accommodate interested parties.

Additionally, the NRC staff will host informal discussions one hour prior to the start of each session at the same location. No formal comments on the proposed scope of the supplement to the GEIS will be accepted during the informal discussions. To be considered, comments must be provided either at the transcribed public meetings or in writing, as discussed below.

DPR–31 and DPR–41, respectively, issued to Florida Power and Light Company (the licensee), which revised the Technical Specifications (TSs) for operation of the Turkey Point Nuclear Plant, Units 3 and 4, located in Miami-Dade County, Florida. The amendment was effective as of the date of its issuance. These amendments remove the notes associated with License Amendment No. 221 regarding the inoperability of the Unit 4 Rod Position Indication (RPI) system for control rod F–8 in Shutdown Bank B, and the notes associated with Amendment No. 230 regarding the inoperability of the Unit 3 RPI system for control rod M–6 in Control Bank C. The RPI system for control rod F–8 was repaired during the Unit 4 Cycle 22 refueling outage in spring 2005; thus, the associated TS License Amendment No. 221 revisions are no longer required. Similarly, the RPI system for control rod M–6 was repaired in June 2007; thus, the associated TS License Amendment No. 230 revisions are no longer required. The application for the amendment complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission’s rules and regulations.

ACTION: Notice of standard data elements. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is establishing a standard set of data elements for a government-wide summary report of inventions and the Interagency Edison extramural invention reporting system (iEdison) as the host site for collecting this information. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Marguerite Pridgen, Office of Federal Financial Management, Office of Management and Budget, 725 17th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20503; telephone 202–395–7844; fax 202–395– 3952; e-mail mpridgen@omb.eop.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background On October 30, 2002, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) proposed the establishment of a government-wide standard set of data elements for the summary report of inventions [67 FR 66178–66183]. The proposal included implementation of a standard dataset via a single interactive Internet web form. The OMB notice proposed locating this interactive web form on the Interagency Edison extramural invention reporting system (iEdison) because iEdison facilitates compliance with the Bayh-Dole Act (Pub. L. 96–517 (codified at 35 U.S.C. 200 et seq.) Dec. 12, 1980) (‘‘Bayh-Dole Act’’) and its implementing regulations and iEdison is recognized by federal funding recipients as being used by most Federal agencies for invention reporting and tracking. In response to the Federal Register notice, OMB received six sets of comments from eight entities: three universities; a group of universities that participate with Federal agencies in a demonstration program on research administration; one association of research universities; and three Federal agencies.

the Unit 3 RPI system for control rod M-6 in Control Bank C. The RPI 
system for control rod F-8 was repaired during the Unit 4 Cycle 22 
refueling outage in spring 2005; thus, the associated TS License 
Amendment No. 221 revisions are no longer required. Similarly, the RPI 
system for control rod M-6 was repaired in June 2007; thus, the 
associated TS License Amendment No. 230 revisions are no longer
