Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 160 / Monday, August 19, 2013 / Notices The Commission has made appropriate findings as required by the Act and the Commission’s rules and regulations in 10 CFR Chapter I, which are set forth in the license amendment. A notice of consideration of issuance of amendment to facility operating license or combined license, as applicable, proposed no significant hazards consideration determination, and opportunity for a hearing in connection with these actions, was published in the Federal Register on March 4, 2013 (78 FR 14137). The supplements had no effect on the no significant hazards consideration determination and no comments were received during the 60-day comment period. The Commission has determined that these amendments satisfy the criteria for categorical exclusion in accordance with 10 CFR 51.22. Therefore, pursuant to 10 CFR 51.22(b), no environmental impact statement or environmental assessment need be prepared for these amendments. IV. Conclusion Using the reasons set forth in the combined safety evaluation, the staff granted the exemption and issued the amendment that the licensee requested on January 11, 2013, and supplemented by letters February 27, 2013 and June 11, 2013. The exemption and amendment were issued on July 25, 2013 as part of a combined package to the licensee. (ADAMS Accession No. ML13172A181). Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 12th day of August, 2013.
