King, Director, Office of Administration, National Mediation Board. Application for Investigation of Representation Dispute Type of Review: Extension. Title: Application for Investigation of Representation Dispute. OMB Number: 3140–0001. Frequency: On occasion. Affected Public: Carrier and Union Officials, and employees of railroads and airlines. Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: Responses: 68 annually. Burden Hours: 17.00. Abstract: When a dispute arises among a carrier’s employees as to who will be their bargaining representative, the National Mediation Board (NMB) is required by Section 2, Ninth, to investigate the dispute, to determine who is the authorized representative, if any, and to certify such representative. The NMB’s duties do not arise until its services have been invoked by a party to the dispute. The Railway Labor Act is silent as to how the invocation of a representation dispute is to be accomplished and the NMB has not promulgated regulations requiring any specific vehicle. Nonetheless, 29 CFR 1203.2, provides that applications for the services of the NMB under Section 2, Ninth, to investigate representation disputes may be made on printed forms secured from the NMB’s Office of Legal Affairs or on the Internet at http:// www.nmb.gov/representation/ rapply.html. The application requires the following information: The name of the carrier involved; the name or description of the craft or class involved; the name of the petitioning organization or individual; the name of the organization currently representing the employees, if any; the names of any other organizations or representatives involved in the dispute; and the estimated number of employees in the craft or class involved. This basic information is essential in providing the NMB with the details of the dispute so that it can determine what resources will be required to conduct an investigation. The extension of this form is necessary considering the information is used by the Board in determining such matters as how many staff will be required to conduct an investigation and what other resources must be mobilized to complete our statutory responsibilities. Without this information, the Board would have to delay the commencement of the VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:59 May 21, 2013 Jkt 229001 investigation, which is contrary to the intent of the Railway Labor Act. Requests for copies of the proposed information collection request may be accessed from www.nmb.gov or should be addressed to Denise Murdock, NMB, 1301 K Street NW., Suite 250 E, Washington, DC 20005 or addressed to the email address murdock@nmb.gov or faxed to 202–692–5081. Please specify the complete title of the information collection when making your request. Comments regarding burden and/or the collection activity requirements should be directed to June D.W. King at 202–692–5010 or via internet address king@nmb.gov. Individuals who use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD/TDY) may call the Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) at 1– 800–877–8339.

II. Discussion By letter dated April 2, 2013, USEC submitted its Application for Renewal of its, CoC for the PGDP, in accordance with Part 76 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR). The existing CoC (No. GDP–1) authorizes operation of a uranium enrichment facility in Paducah, Kentucky, using the gaseous diffusion process. The USEC requests that the NRC renew its Certificate for a 5-year period. If granted, the Certificate renewal would authorize USEC to continue operations until December 31, 2018. The NRC issued the initial certificate of compliance for PGDP on November 26, 1996, and assumed regulatory oversight for the plant on March 3, 1997. The PGDP was last issued a renewed CoC on December 31, 2008, and, by its terms, this Certificate will expire on December 31, 2013. The USEC’s renewal request is for a 5-year period, extending from the current expiration date of December 31, 2013, to December 31, 2018. The USEC’s application for renewal is based on its previous Application (USEC–01), as revised through Revision 138 dated April 1, 2013. No additional changes to the application are requested. If the NRC approves the request, the PGDP Certificate will be renewed for a 5-year period, with an expiration date of December 31, 2018. However, before approving the request, the NRC will need to make the findings required by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the NRC’s regulations. The required findings will be documented in a Compliance Evaluation Report. In accordance with 10 CFR 76.39, the NRC will conduct a public meeting, in the vicinity of the PGDP, in July of 2013. Notice of the meeting will be posted on the NRC Web site, http://www.nrc.gov/ public-involve/public-meetings/ index.cfm. Following evaluation of USEC’s application for renewal and any public comments received, the NRC staff will issue a written Director’s decision and publish a notice of the decision in the Federal Register.

II. Discussion

    By letter dated April 2, 2013, USEC submitted its Application for 
Renewal of its, CoC for the PGDP, in accordance with Part 76 of Title 
10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR). The existing CoC (No. 
GDP-1) authorizes operation of a uranium enrichment facility in 
Paducah, Kentucky, using the gaseous diffusion process. The USEC 
requests that the NRC renew its Certificate for a 5-year period. If 
granted, the Certificate renewal would authorize USEC to continue 
operations until December 31, 2018.
    The NRC issued the initial certificate of compliance for PGDP on 
November 26, 1996, and assumed regulatory oversight for the plant on 
March 3, 1997. The PGDP was last issued a renewed CoC on December 31, 
2008, and, by its terms, this Certificate will expire on December 31, 
2013. The USEC's renewal request is for a 5-year period, extending from 
the current expiration date of December 31, 2013, to December 31, 2018. 
The USEC's application for renewal is based on its previous Application 
(USEC-01), as revised through Revision 138 dated April 1, 2013. No 
additional changes to the application are requested.
    If the NRC approves the request, the PGDP Certificate will be 
renewed for a 5-year period, with an expiration date of December 31, 
2018. However, before approving the request, the NRC will need to make 
the findings required by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the 
Act), and the NRC's regulations. The required findings will be 
documented in a Compliance Evaluation Report.
    In accordance with 10 CFR 76.39, the NRC will conduct a public 
meeting, in the vicinity of the PGDP, in July of 2013. Notice of the 
meeting will be posted on the NRC Web site, http://www.nrc.gov/public-involve/public-meetings/index.cfm.
    Following evaluation of USEC's application for renewal and any 
public comments received, the NRC staff will issue a written Director's 
decision and publish a notice of the decision in the Federal Register. 
Upon publication of the notice of decision, any person whose interest 
may be affected may then request review of the decision within 30 days, 
pursuant to 10 CFR 76.62(c) or 76.64(d), whichever applies.

III. Further Information

    Copies of USEC's Certificate renewal request (except for classified 
and proprietary portions which are withheld in accordance with 10 CFR 
2.390, ``Availability of Public Records'') are available for inspection
