SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering the issuance of a license amendment to Materials License No. 24–13365–01 issued to Analytical Bio-Chemistry Laboratories, Inc. (the licensee), to authorize the release of the licensee’s sanitary lagoon and the surrounding effluent discharge area for unrestricted use. Once released, these areas will no longer be subject to the license, and licensed activities will not be permitted therein. The licensee’s facility is located at 7200 E. ABC Lane, Columbia, Missouri, approximately six miles east of Columbia and immediately north of I–70. The site is approximately 56 acres in size and is zoned as planned office, general industrial, and controlled industrial districts in central Boone County. The NRC has prepared the following environmental assessment (EA) of this proposed license amendment in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended (NEPA), and Part 51 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), ‘‘Environmental Protection Regulations for Domestic Licensing and Related Regulatory Functions.’’ Based on this EA, the NRC has concluded that a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) is appropriate. Therefore, the license amendment will be issued following the publication of the EA and FONSI in this notice. II. Environmental Assessment The licensee is a contract research organization that conducts research, development, and manufacturing of pharmaceuticals and agricultural chemicals. Operation at the licensee’s site began in 1968. The licensee’s facility is bounded by residential, agricultural and commercially zoned areas which appear to be in a stable phase of growth. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) issued Construction Permit number 26–1030 on May 15, 1986, authorizing the construction of a single 13,500 square foot surface lagoon with 540 linear feet of 2-inch diameter piping to accommodate an average flow of 10,000 gallons per day. The lagoon, application area and drain field were constructed on the west side of the site and comprised approximately 28 acres. The licensee’s sanitary lagoon was operated from 1986 until 2004, at which E:\FR\FM\18JAN1.SGM 18JAN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Each year cable systems must submit royalty 
payments to the Register of Copyrights as required by the statutory 
license set forth in section 111 of the Copyright Act for the 
retransmission to cable subscribers of over-the-air television and 
radio broadcast signals. See 17 U.S.C. 111(d). These royalties are then 
distributed to copyright owners whose works were included in a 
qualifying transmission and who timely filed a

claim for royalties. Allocation of the royalties collected occurs in 
one of two ways. In the first instance, these funds will be distributed 
through a negotiated settlement among the parties. 17 U.S.C. 
111(d)(4)(A). If the claimants do not reach an agreement with respect 
to the royalties, the Copyright Royalty Judges (``Judges'') must 
conduct a proceeding to determine the distribution of any royalties 
that remain in controversy. 17 U.S.C. 111(d)(4)(B).
    On December 12, 2012, representatives of the Phase I claimant 
categories (the ``Phase I Parties'') \1\ filed with the Judges a motion 
requesting a partial distribution of 50% of the 2011 cable royalty 
funds pursuant to Section 801(b)(3)(C) of the Copyright Act. 17 U.S.C. 
801(b)(3)(C). Under that section of the Copyright Act, before ruling on 
a partial distribution motion the Judges must publish a notice in the 
Federal Register seeking responses to the motion to ascertain whether 
any claimant entitled to receive such royalty fees has a reasonable 
objection to the proposed distribution. Consequently, this Notice seeks 
comments from interested claimants on whether any reasonable objection 
exists that would preclude the distribution of 50% of the 2011 cable 
royalty funds to the Phase I Parties. The Judges must be advised of the 
existence and extent of all such objections by the end of the comment 
period. The Judges will not consider any objections with respect to the 
partial distribution motion that come to their attention after the 
close of that period.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The ``Phase I Parties'' are the Program Suppliers, Joint 
Sports Claimants, Public Television Claimants, Commercial Television 
Claimants (represented by National Association of Broadcasters), 
Music Claimants (represented by American Society of Composers, 
Authors and Publishers, Broadcast Music, Inc., and SESAC, Inc.), 
Canadian Claimants Group, National Public Radio, and Devotional 
Claimants. In Phase I of a cable royalty distribution proceeding, 
royalties are allocated among certain categories of broadcast 
programming that have been retransmitted by cable systems. The 
categories have traditionally been movies and syndicated television 
series, sports programming, commercial and noncommercial 
broadcaster-owned programming, religious programming, music, public 
radio programming, and Canadian programming. In Phase II of a cable 
royalty distribution proceeding, royalties are allocated among 
claimants within each of the Phase I categories.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Judges also seek comment on the existence and extent of any 
controversies to the 2011 cable royalty funds at Phase I or Phase II 
with respect to those funds that would remain if the partial 
distribution is granted.
    The Motion of Phase I Claimants for Partial Distribution is posted 
on the Copyright Royalty Board Web site at http://www.loc.gov/crb.
