ACTION: Renewal of the Advisory Committee on Apprenticeship (ACA) Charter. Notice is hereby given of the renewal of a national advisory committee on apprenticeship that is necessary and in the public interest. Accordingly, the U.S. Department of Labor, the Employment and Training Administration has renewed the Advisory Committee on Apprenticeship Charter for two years and has made changes to the terms of members. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background Summary of Revisions mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Signed at Washington, DC, this twelfth day of January, 2009. Brent R. Orrell, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Employment and Training Administration. [FR Doc. E9–842 Filed 1–15–09; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4510–FR–P The Advisory Committee on Apprenticeship (ACA) is an advisory group to the Secretary of Labor, whose objective is to make recommendations on how to strengthen the Registered Apprenticeship system. The Charter is required to be renewed every two years; the current Charter expires February 20, 2009. The committee’s recommendations and accomplishments have and continue to help ETA and the Secretary to transform and expand the apprenticeship model. The current Charter is being renewed with changes to the terms of members. The Charter is amended to better clarify the Secretary’s authority to reappoint Committee members prior to the expiration of their terms. We have added introductory language to state that ‘‘to the extent practicable, members shall be appointed according to the terms of this section. However, all Committee members shall serve at the pleasure of the Secretary and members may be appointed, reappointed, and/or replaced, and their terms may be extended, changed, or terminated as the Secretary sees fit.’’ In addition, the 2007 Charter states that ‘‘ * * * the expiration date of the 2-year terms shall coincide with the termination of the Charter, and the 1year terms shall expire one month prior to the termination of the Charter.’’ For clarity in the language, and appropriate termination of membership terms, this section was revised to read: ‘‘* * * When the Charter is renewed prior to its VerDate Nov<24>2008 expiration date, the terms will continue for the period specified in the invitation unless either the term or the Charter is terminated by the Secretary. When the Charter is not renewed prior to its expiration date, the terms offered under that Charter shall expire upon termination of the Charter.’’ Finally, we have made a few grammatical corrections to this section.

E9–869 Filed 1–15–09; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 7510–13–P NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION [Docket Nos.: 50–327, 50–328; License Nos.: DPR–77, DPR–79; EA–08–211; NRC– 2009–0006] In the Matter of Tennessee Valley Authority, Sequoyah Nuclear Plant; Confirmatory Order (Effective Immediately) I Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA or Licensee) is the holder of Operating License Nos. DPR–77 and DPR–79, issued by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or Commission) pursuant to 10 CFR Part 50 on September 17, 1980, and September 15, 1981, respectively. The license authorizes the operation of Sequoyah Nuclear Plant, Units 1 and 2, (Sequoyah or facility) in accordance with conditions specified therein. The facility is located on the Licensee’s site in Soddy-Daisy, Tennessee. This Confirmatory Order is the result of an agreement reached during an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) mediation session conducted on September 22, 2008. II mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES On April 18, 2008, the NRC’s Office of Investigations (OI) completed an investigation (OI Case No. 2–2007–025) regarding activities at the Sequoyah Nuclear Plant. Based on the evidence developed during the investigation, the NRC staff concluded that on May 31, 2007, a contract security sergeant at Sequoyah deliberately falsified an equipment inventory form, and caused TVA to be in apparent violation of NRC and licensee requirements, including 10 CFR 50.9(a), Completeness and Accuracy of Information, the Sequoyah Physical Security Plan, and implementing procedure NSDP–26, Weapons Accountability. The results of the investigation were sent to TVA in a letter dated August 15, 2008. III On September 22, 2008, the NRC and TVA met in an ADR session mediated by a professional mediator, arranged through Cornell University’s Institute on Conflict Resolution. ADR is a process in which a neutral mediator with no VerDate Nov<24>2008 19:02 Jan 15, 2009 Jkt 217001 decision-making authority assists the parties in reaching an agreement or resolving any differences regarding their dispute. This confirmatory order is issued pursuant to the agreement reached during the ADR process. The elements of the agreement consist of the following: 1. The NRC and TVA agreed that a contract security supervisor at Sequoyah failed to conduct an adequate inventory of security equipment. To conceal the inadequate inventory, the supervisor deliberately destroyed the record of the inventory, and falsified a newly created record that replaced the destroyed document. These actions placed TVA in violation of 10 CFR 50.9(a), the Sequoyah Physical Security Plan, and Sequoyah Procedure NSDP–26. 2. Based on TVA’s review of the incident and NRC concerns with respect to precluding recurrence of the violation, TVA agreed to corrective actions and enhancements, as fully delineated in Section V of the Confirmatory Order. 3. At the ADR session, the NRC and TVA agreed that the above elements involving the violation, and TVA’s corrective actions and enhancements as delineated in Section V, will be incorporated into a Confirmatory Order. The resulting Confirmatory Order will beconsidered by the NRC for any assessment of Sequoyah, as appropriate. 4. In consideration of the commitments delineated in Section V of this Confirmatory Order, the NRC agreed to refrain from proposing a civil penalty or issuing a Notice of Violation for all matters discussed in the NRC’s letter to TVA of August 15, 2008 (EA– 08–211). 5. This agreement is binding upon successors and assigns of the Sequoyah Nuclear Plant and TVA. On December 12, 2008, the Licensee consented to issuance of this Order with the commitments, as described in Section V below. The Licensee further agreed that this Order is to be effective upon issuance and that it has waived its right to a hearing. IV Since the licensee has agreed to take actions to address the violation as set forth in Section III above, the NRC has concluded that its concerns can be resolved through issuance of this Order. I find that the Licensee’s commitments as set forth in Section V are acceptable and necessary and conclude that with these commitments the public health and safety are reasonably assured. In view of the foregoing, I have determined that public health and safety require that the PO 00000 Frm 00113 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 3103 Licensee’s commitments be confirmed by this Order. Based on the above and the Licensee’s consent, this Order is immediately effective upon issuance. V Accordingly, pursuant to Sections 104b, 161b, 161i, 161o, 182 and 186 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, and the Commission’s regulations in 10 CFR 2.202 and 10 CFR Part 50, It is hereby ordered, effective immediately, that License Nos. DPR–77 and DPR–79 are modified as follows: a. TVA will ensure that site security procedures for all TVA nuclear sites are revised such that original documents required to be maintained by site security procedures are not destroyed, and are retained in accordance with regulatory requirements. b. As part of first line supervisory training for security supervisors, TVA will provide fleet-wide training related to Civil Treatment/Ethics, Roles of the Supervisor, Communication in the Workplace, Standards of Conduct, Coaching and Counseling Employees, Operational Issues and Operating Experience, Leadership, Administration, Client Interface/Service, Regulatory Reporting Requirements, Safety, and Security Observation Program. Upon completion of TVA’s transition to an inhouse security force, TVA will ensure that security supervisors receive training consistent with first line supervisors in other disciplines. c. TVA will ensure that security personnel at all TVA nuclear sites receive annual training on the use of TVA’s internal programs for resolution of issues/deficiencies (e.g., Corrective Action Program, Employees Concerns Program), consistent with training received by TVA personnel requiring unescorted access to the TVA nuclear sites. d. Beginning within 30 days of the issuance of this Confirmatory Order, TVA will conduct a minimum of 15 observations of Sequoyah security activities each month, until TVA transitions to an in-house security force. e. TVA agrees to complete items V.a through V.d above no later than September 30, 2009. f. During TVA’s transition to an inhouse security force, each TVA nuclear site will conduct meetings at a minimum of twice each month with the security contractor, to monitor the status of corrective actions associated with the Security Independent Evaluation referenced below. g. TVA will assess the effectiveness of the corrective actions and enhancements identified in its Security Independent Evaluation, and the results E:\FR\FM\16JAN1.SGM 16JAN1
