Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) is soliciting comments on the existing collection of information provided for in Rule 17f–2(d) [17 CFR 240.17f–2(d)], under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78a et seq.) (‘‘Act’’). The Commission plans to submit this existing collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget for extension and approval. Rule 17f–2(d) requires that records produced pursuant to the fingerprinting requirements of Section 17(f)(2) of the Act be maintained; permits the designated examining authorities of broker-dealers or members of exchanges, under certain circumstances, to store and maintain records required to be kept by this rule; and permits the required records to be maintained on microfilm. The general purpose for Rule 17f–2 is to: (i) Identify security risk personnel; (ii) provide criminal record information so that employers can make fully informed employment decisions; and (iii) deter persons with criminal records from seeking employment or association with covered entities. The rule enables the Commission or other examining authority to ascertain whether all required persons are being fingerprinted and whether proper procedures regarding fingerprint are being followed. Retention of these records for the term of employment of all personnel plus three years ensures that law enforcement officials will have easy access to fingerprint cards on a timely basis. This in turn acts as an effective deterrent to employee misconduct. Approximately 5,300 respondents are subject to the recordkeeping requirements of the rule. Each respondent keeps approximately 60 new records per year, which takes approximately 2 minutes per record for the respondent to maintain, for an annual burden of approximately 2 hours (60 records times 2 minutes) per respondent or a total annual burden of approximately 10,300 hours (5,300 respondents times 2 hours) for all respondents. All records subject to the rule must be retained for the term of employment plus 3 years. In addition, we estimate the total cost to respondents is approximately $119,000. The Commission may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number.

NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION

[Docket Nos. 50-282 and 50-306; NRC-2009-0507]


Northern States Power Company--Minnesota; Prairie Island Nuclear 
Generating Plant, Units 1 and 2; Notice of Issuance of Renewed Facility 
Operating License Nos. DPR-42 and DPR-60 for an Additional 20-Year 
Period; Record of Decision

    Notice is hereby given that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission 
(NRC, the Commission) has issued Renewed Facility Operating License 
Nos. DPR-42 and DPR-60 to Northern States Power Company--Minnesota 
(licensee), the

[[Page 39446]]

operator of Prairie Island Nuclear Generating Plant, Units 1 and 2 
(PINGP). Renewed Facility Operating License Nos. DPR-42 and DPR-60 
authorize the licensee to operate PINGP at reactor core power levels 
not in excess of 1,677 megawatts thermal for each unit, in accordance 
with the provisions of the PINGP renewed licenses and technical 
specifications.
    The notice also serves as the record of decision for Renewed 
Facility Operating License Nos. DPR-42 and DPR-60, consistent with 
Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 51.103, ``Record 
of Decision--General.'' NUREG-1437, ``Generic Environmental Impact 
Statement for License Renewal of Nuclear Plants, Supplement 39, 
Regarding Prairie Island Nuclear Generating Plant, Units 1 and 2,'' 
issued May 2011, discusses the Commission's consideration of a range of 
reasonable alternatives, including replacement power from a new 
natural-gas-fired, combined-cycle plant; a combination of natural gas, 
wind, and wood-fired generation and conservation; a combination of 
wind, conservation, and continued operation of one of the PINGP units; 
and not renewing the licenses (the no-action alternative). The factors 
considered in the record of decision appear in the supplemental 
environmental impact statement (SEIS) for PINGP. Subsequent to the 
issuance of the final SEIS, the NRC received two letters commenting on 
the final SEIS. The first letter was from the U.S. Environmental 
Protection Agency, Region 5, dated June 15, 2011. The second letter was 
from the Prairie Island Indian Community, dated June 20, 2011. The NRC 
staff has reviewed the comments and has determined that the comments 
provide no new or significant information, and therefore, none of the 
findings in the final SEIS are changed as a result of the comments.
    The PINGP units are pressurized-water reactors located within the 
city limits of Red Wing, MN, on the west bank of the Mississippi River 
in southeastern Minnesota. The application for the renewed licenses 
complied with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act 
of 1954, as amended, and the Commission's regulations. As required by 
the Atomic Energy Act and the Commission's regulations in 10 CFR 
chapter I, the Commission has made appropriate findings, which are set 
forth in the licenses. Prior public notice of the action involving the 
proposed issuance of the renewed licenses and of an opportunity for a 
hearing on the proposed issuance of the renewed licenses was published 
in the Federal Register on June 17, 2008 (73 FR 34335).
    For further details with respect to this action, see (1) Northern 
States Power Company's license renewal application for PINGP dated 
April 11, 2008, as supplemented by letters dated through May 11, 2011; 
(2) the Commission's safety evaluation report, issued October 16, 2009, 
and supplemented on April 15, 2011; (3) the licensee's updated safety 
analysis report; and (4) the Commission's final environmental impact 
statement (NUREG-1437, Supplement 39), issued May 2011. These documents
