Download as PDF 79196 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 248 / Wednesday, December 24, 2008 / Notices I. Background Under 30 CFR 5.50, MSHA may revise the fee schedule for testing, evaluation, and approval of mining products at least once every three years although the fee schedule must remain in effect for at least one year. MSHA’s existing fee schedule, revised December 27, 2007 (72 FR 73380), became effective January 1, 2008. Under 30 CFR 5.30(a), the new fee adjustment does not apply to the 30 CFR part 15 testing (explosives and sheathed explosive units). In addition, under 30 CFR 5.40, it does not apply to travel expenses incurred under this Part. When the nature of the product requires MSHA to test and evaluate the product at a location other than on MSHA premises, MSHA must be reimbursed for the travel, subsistence, and incidental expenses of its representative according to Federal government travel regulations. This reimbursement is separate from, and in addition to, the fees charged for evaluation and testing. II. Fee Computation MSHA computed the 2009 fees using FY 2008 costs for baseline data. MSHA calculated a weighted-average based on the direct and indirect costs to applicants for testing, evaluation, and approval services rendered during FY 2008. From this average, MSHA computed a single hourly rate, which applies uniformly to all applications. As a result of this process, MSHA has determined that as of January 1, 2009, the fee will be $90 per hour of services rendered. III. Applicable Fee • Applications postmarked before January 1, 2009: MSHA will process these applications under the 2008 hourly rate of $84. • Applications postmarked on or after January 1, 2009: MSHA will process these applications under the 2009 hourly rate of $90.

This document is a supplement to the Environmental Impact Statement for an Early Site Permit (ESP) at the North Anna ESP site, NUREG–1811, dated December 2006. The North Anna site is located near the Town of Mineral in Louisa County, Virginia on the southern shore of Lake Anna. Virginia Electric and Power Company, doing business as Dominion Virginia Power, and Old Dominion Electric Cooperative, collectively referred to as Dominion, submitted an application on November 27, 2007, for a COL at its North Anna Power Station (North Anna). A COL is an authorization to construct and (with specified conditions) operate a nuclear power plant at a specific site, in accordance with established laws and regulations. In November 2007, the NRC issued ESP–003 to Dominion Nuclear North Anna, LLC, for the North Anna ESP Site (the site of proposed Unit 3). An ESP is an NRC approval of a site as suitable for construction and operation of one or more new nuclear units. The application for a COL for North Anna Unit 3 submitted by Dominion references the ESP for the North Anna ESP site, ESP–003. Pursuant to NRC regulations in 10 CFR 51.50(c)(1), a COL applicant referencing an ESP need not submit information or analyses regarding environmental issues that were resolved in the ESP EIS, except to the extent the COL applicant has identified new and significant information regarding such E:\FR\FM\24DEN1.SGM 24DEN1
