In addition to being an important disclosure document for plan participants and beneficiaries, Form 5500 is a compliance and research tool for the EBSA, Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, and Internal Revenue Service. It is also a source of information for use by other Federal agencies, Congress, and the private sector in assessing employee benefit, tax, and economic trends and policies. Form 5500 constitutes an information collection within the meaning of the PRA. Generally, an agency 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. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under OMB Control Number 1210–0110. The current OMB approval is scheduled to expire on September 30, 2010, and the DOL is seeking OMB approval to continue this information collection. For additional information, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on June 23, 2010 (75 FR 35843). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES section within 30 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. In order to ensure the appropriate consideration, comments should reference OMB Control Number 1210– 0110. The OMB is particularly interested in comments that: • Evaluate 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; • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing for public comment a draft guide in the agency’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public such information as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the NRC’s regulations, techniques that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. The draft regulatory guide (DG), entitled, ‘‘Availability of Electric Power Sources’’ temporarily identified by its task number, DG–1244, which should be mentioned in all related correspondence. DG–1244 is proposed Revision 1 of Regulatory Guide 1.93, dated May 1974. This regulatory guide describes guidelines that the staff of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) considers acceptable when the available electric power sources are less than the number of sources required by the limiting conditions for operation (LCOs) for a facility. This regulatory guide is applicable to single- and multiple-unit plants and is consistent with the improved Standard Technical Specifications (iSTS). The LCO-required E:\FR\FM\24SEN1.SGM 24SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 185 / Friday, September 24, 2010 / Notices srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES actions and specified completion times referred to in this regulatory guide are based on the completion times presented in Regulatory Guide 1.93, ‘‘Availability of Electric Power Sources,’’ Revision 0, issued December 1974, which have been incorporated into the required actions in the iSTS. II. Further Information The NRC staff is soliciting comments on DG–1244. Comments may be accompanied by relevant information or supporting data and should mention DG–1244 in the subject line. Comments submitted in writing or in electronic form will be made available to the public in their entirety through the NRC’s Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS). Because your comments will not be edited to remove any identifying or contact information, the NRC cautions you against including any information in your submission that you do not want to be publicly disclosed. The NRC requests that any party soliciting or aggregating comments received from other persons for submission to the NRC inform those persons that the NRC will not edit their comments to remove any identifying or contact information, and therefore, they should not include any information in their comments that they do not want publicly disclosed. You may submit comments by any of the following methods: 1. Mail comments to: Rules, Announcements, and Directives Branch, Mail Stop: TWB–05–B01M, Office of Administration, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555– 0001. 2.

Fax comments to: Rules, Announcements, and Directives Branch, Office of Administration, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission at (301) 492– 3446. Comments would be most helpful if received by November 26, 2010. Comments received after that date will be considered if it is practical to do so, but the NRC is able to ensure consideration only for comments received on or before this date. Although a time limit is given, comments and suggestions in connection with items for inclusion in guides currently being developed or improvements in all published guides are encouraged at any time.

DPR–44 and DPR–56, issued to Exelon Generation Company, LLC (the licensee), for operation of Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station (PBAPS), Unit Nos. 2 and 3, located in York and Lancaster Counties, Pennsylvania. Therefore, as required by 10 CFR 51.21, the NRC PO 00000 Frm 00099 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 58445 performed an environmental assessment. Based on the results of the environmental assessment, the NRC is issuing a finding of no significant impact. Environmental Assessment Identification of the Proposed Action The proposed action would grant an exemption to 10 CFR Part 50, Appendix R, Section III.G.2 (III.G.2) for the use of OMAs contained in the licensee’s Fire Protection Program (FPP) in lieu of certain technical requirements contained in III.G.2. The licensee’s FPP requires that the identified operator manual actions be performed outside of the control room to achieve shutdown of the reactor following fires in certain fire areas in the plant. The licensee states that the documentation provided in the submitted exemption request for PBAPS, Unit Nos. 2 and 3, demonstrates the feasibility and reliability of the identified OMAs. The proposed action is in accordance with the licensee’s application dated March 6, 2009, as supplemented by letter dated February 12, 2010 (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession Nos. ML090680141 and ML100470774, respectively). The Need for the Proposed Action The proposed exemption requests the use of OMAs in lieu of meeting the circuit separation and protection requirements contained in III.G.2 for 11 fire areas described in the PBAPS FPP. The OMAs consist of a sequence of tasks that are initiated upon confirmation of a fire in the associated fire area. The proposed exemption is necessary because the crediting of OMAs to achieve and maintain hot shutdown of the reactor is not addressed in 10 CFR Part 50, Appendix R, Section III.G.2, and an exemption is therefore required in accordance with 10 CFR 50.12. Environmental Impacts of the Proposed Action The NRC has completed its evaluation for the proposed action and concludes that the OMAs addressed in the application are feasible and can be reliably performed. Further, the NRC concludes that the licensee has demonstrated sufficient defense-indepth such that identified preventative and protective measures in addition to the specified OMAs demonstrate the licensee’s ability to preserve or maintain safe shutdown capability in the event of a fire in the analyzed fire areas. The details of the NRC staff’s safety evaluation will be provided in the E:\FR\FM\24SEN1.SGM 24SEN1
