The ROD and FSEIS documents the NRC decision for the environmental review that the adverse environmental impacts of license renewal for Limerick are not so great that preserving the option of license renewal for energy planning decisionmakers would be unreasonable. Limerick Units 1 and 2 are boiling water reactors located in Limerick Township, Pennsylvania. The application for the renewed licenses, ‘‘Limerick Generating Station License Renewal Application,’’ dated June 22, 2011 (ADAMS Accession No. ML111790800), complied with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the NRC’s regulations. As required by the Act and the NRC’s regulations in 10 CFR Chapter 1, the NRC has made appropriate findings, which are set forth in the licenses. A public notice of the proposed issuance of the renewed licenses and an opportunity for a hearing was published in the Federal Register on August 24, 2011 (76 FR 52992).

Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed information collection is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the RRB’s estimate of the burden of the collection of the information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden related to the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. 1. Title and purpose of information collection: Railroad Service and Compensation Reports/System Access Application; OMB 3220–0008. Under Section 9 of the Railroad Retirement Act (RRA) and Section 6 of the Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act (RUIA) the Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) maintains for each railroad employee, a record of compensation paid to that employee by all railroad employers for whom the employee worked after 1936. This record, which is used by the RRB to determine eligibility for, and amount of, benefits due under the laws it administers, is conclusive as to the amount of compensation paid to an employee during such period(s) covered by the report(s) of the compensation by the employee’s railroad employer(s), except in cases when an employee files a protest pertaining to his or her reported compensation within the statute of limitations cited in Section 9 of the RRA and Section 6 of the RUIA. PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 To enable the RRB to establish and maintain the record of compensation, employers are required to file with the RRB, reports of their employees’ compensation, in such manner and form and at such times as the RRB prescribes. Railroad employers’ reports and responsibilities are prescribed in 20 CFR 209. The RRB currently utilizes Form BA–3, Annual Report of Creditable Compensation, and Form BA–4, Report of Creditable Compensation Adjustments, to secure the required information from railroad employers. Form BA–3 provides the RRB with information regarding annual creditable service and compensation for each individual who worked for a railroad employer covered by the RRA and RUIA in a given year. Form BA–4 provides for the adjustment of any previously submitted reports and also the opportunity to provide any service and compensation that had been previously omitted. Requirements specific to Forms BA–3 and BA–4 are prescribed in 20 CFR 209.8 and 209.9. Employers currently have the option of submitting BA–3 and BA–4 reports electronically by CD–ROM, File Transfer Protocol (FTP), secure Email, or online via the RRB’s Employer Reporting System (ERS). The information collection also includes RRB Form BA–12, Application for Employer Reporting Internet Access, and Form G–440, Report Specifications Sheet. Form BA–12 is completed by railroad employers to obtain system access to ERS. Once access is obtained, authorized employees may submit reporting forms online to the RRB. The form determines what degree of access (view/only, data entry/modification or approval/submission) is appropriate for that employee. It is also used to terminate an employee’s access to ERS. Form G–440, Report Specifications Sheet, serves as a certification document for various RRB employer reporting forms (Forms BA–3, BA–4, Form BA–6a, BA–6, Address Report (OMB 3220– 0005), BA–9, Report of Separation Allowance or Severance Pay (OMB 3220–0173) and BA–11, Report of Gross Earnings (OMB 3220–0132)). It records the type of medium the report was submitted on, and serves as a summary recapitulation sheet for reports filed on paper. The RRB proposes minor nonburden impacting changes to Form BA– 12 and G–440. E:\FR\FM\24OCN1.SGM 24OCN1
