Download as PDF pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 26270 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 88 / Wednesday, May 7, 2014 / Notices administered once during the three year clearance period, the annualized number of responses is 1,026.3 responses. 8. The estimated number of annual respondents: The annualized number of estimated respondents is the same as the estimated number of responses, 1,026.3 respondents. 9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: The survey is estimated to take no more than 20 minutes (0.33 hours) per respondent. The total annualized burden is estimated to be 338.7 hours. 10. Abstract: In June 2011, the NRC issued its Safety Culture Policy Statement, which describes the Commission’s expectation that the NRC’s regulated community maintain a positive safety culture. The NRC continues to seek ways to engage with stakeholders, licensees, members of the public, and the international community to provide outreach and education on the Safety Culture Policy Statement. The purpose of the current information collection activity is to gather feedback on whether NRC’s outreach and communication activities have been effective in promoting awareness of the Safety Culture Policy Statement, and to determine if changes to current activities and/or new activities are necessary and appropriate. To support this evaluation, the NRC staff plans to conduct a voluntary survey of its materials regulated community, specifically materials users, organizations involved in the fuel cycle, and storage and transportation of nuclear materials. The NRC staff has also invited Agreement States (i.e., States that have signed formal agreements with the NRC to assume regulatory responsibility over certain byproduct and source nuclear materials, as well as small quantities of special nuclear materials) to participate by voluntarily administering the survey to materials users they regulate, and eight states have agreed to participate. The NRC has determined that a standardized voluntary survey is the most practical means of gathering feedback on its outreach and communications regarding the Safety Culture Policy Statement. Using a survey approach for the evaluation allows for input to be solicited from a wide range of licensees in an efficient and consistent manner. The public may examine and have copies for a fee of publicly-available documents, including the final supporting statement, at the NRC’s Public Document Room, Room O–1F21, One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852.

NPF–91 & NPF–92] In the Matter of Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia (Vogtle Electric Generating Plant, Units 3 & 4); Order Approving Transfer of License and Conforming Amendment pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES I Georgia Power Company, Oglethorpe Power Corporation, Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia (MEAG Power), the City of Dalton, GA, an incorporated municipality in the state of Georgia citing by and through its Board of Water, Light and Sinking Fund Commissioners (City of Dalton), and Southern Nuclear Operating Company, Inc. (SNC) (collectively, the owners) are holders of Combined License (COL) Nos. NPF–91 and NPF–92. These combined licenses authorize SNC to construct, possess, use, and operate Vogtle Electric Generating Plant (VEGP), Units 3 and 4 and the owners to possess but not operate VEGP, Units 3 and 4. The facility (which is currently under VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:11 May 06, 2014 Jkt 232001 construction) is located adjacent to existing VEGP, Units 1 and 2 on a 3,169acre coastal plain bluff on the southwest side of the Savannah River in eastern Burke County, GA. The facility is approximately 15 miles east-northeast of Waynesboro, GA, and 26 miles southeast of Augusta, GA. II By letter dated December 2, 2013, SNC on behalf of MEAG Power and MEAG Power Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) M, LLC; MEAG Power SPVJ, LLC; and MEAG Power SPVP, LLC (The Project Companies) submitted an application to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or Commission) requesting approval of three direct transfers of portions of MEAG Power’s 22.7 percent undivided ownership interest in VEGP, Units 3 and 4. Each of these three transfers may occur independently of or in conjunction with the others, as follows: 1. The transfer of a 7.6886571 percent undivided interest in VEGP, Units 3 and 4 from MEAG Power to MEAG Power SPVM, LLC (Project M); 2. The transfer of a 9.3466423 percent undivided interest in VEGP, Units 3 and 4 from MEAG Power to MEAG Power SPVJ, LLC (Project J); and 3. The transfer of a 5.6647006 percent undivided interest in VEGP, Units 3 and 4 from MEAG Power to MEAG Power SPVP, LCC (Project P). The application is in connection with the finalization of three loans from the U.S. Federal Finance Bank (U.S. FFB) or one or more third party lenders to be guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) through its loan guarantee program for the development of advanced nuclear energy facilities. SNC on behalf of MEAG Power provided supplemental information by letters dated December 12, 2013 and April 17, 2014 (hereinafter, this document will refer to the December 2, 2013, application, and the December 12, 2013, and April 17, 2014, supplemental information collectively as the ‘‘application’’). The application did not request any physical changes to the facility or operational changes. After completion of the proposed transfers one or all of MEAG Power SPVM, MEAG Power SPVJ, and MEAG Power SPVP would own the prescribed portion of MEAG Power’s currently undivided 22.7 percent ownership interest in VEGP, Units 3 and 4. SNC would remain the licensed operator of VEGP, Units 3 and 4. The applicants also requested approval of a conforming license amendment that would replace references to MEAG Power in the PO 00000 Frm 00073 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 26271 license with the appropriate references to the Project Companies based on which of the transfers was finalized, to reflect the transfer of ownership. The applicants requested approval of the transfer of the COL and conforming license amendment under the regulations of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Section 52.105, ‘‘Transfer of Combined Licenses,’’ 10 CFR 50.80, ‘‘Transfer of License,’’ and 10 CFR 50.90, ‘‘Application for Amendment of License, Construction Permit, or Early Site Permit.’’ Notice of the request for approval and opportunity for a hearing was published in the Federal Register on January 21, 2014 (79 FR 3420). No comments were received. No petitions for leave to intervene or requests for hearing pursuant to 10 CFR 2.309 were received. Pursuant to 10 CFR 50.80, no license, or any right thereunder, shall be transferred, directly or indirectly, through transfer of control of the license, unless the Commission shall give its consent in writing. Upon review of the information in the application and other information before the Commission, and relying upon the representations and agreements contained in the application, the NRC staff has determined that Project Companies are qualified to hold the aforementioned specific percentage of ownership interest in the facility previously held by MEAG Power, and that the transfer of ownership interests described in the application is otherwise consistent with applicable provisions of law, regulations and orders issued by the Commission, subject to the conditions set forth below. The NRC staff has further found that the application for the proposed license amendment complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission’s rules and regulations set forth in 10 CFR Chapter I; the facility will operate in conformity with the applications, the provisions of the Act, and the rules and regulations of the Commission; there is reasonable assurance that the activities authorized by the proposed conforming license amendment can be conducted without endangering the health and safety of the public and that such activities will be conducted in compliance with the Commission’s regulations; the issuance of the proposed license amendment will not be inimical to the common defense and security or to the health and safety of the public; and the issuance of the proposed amendment will be in accordance with 10 CFR Part 51 of the E:\FR\FM\07MYN1.SGM 07MYN1
