SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    In accordance with Sec.  51.118 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal 
Regulations, the NRC is making available final Supplement 50 to the 
GEIS regarding the renewal of Entergy operating license NPF-29 for an 
additional 20 years of operation for GGNS. Draft Supplement 50 to the 
GEIS was noticed by the NRC in the Federal Register on December 12, 
2013 (78 FR 75579), and noticed by the Environmental Protection Agency 
on December 20, 2013 (78 FR 77121). The public comment period on draft 
Supplement 50 to the GEIS ended on February 11, 2014, and the comments 
received are addressed in final Supplement 50 to the GEIS.

II. Discussion

    As discussed in Section 9.4 of the final Supplement 50 to the GEIS, 
the NRC staff determined that the adverse environmental impacts of 
license renewal for GGNS are not so great that preserving the option of 
license renewal for energy-planning decisionmakers would be 
unreasonable. This recommendation is based on: (1) The analysis and 
findings in the GEIS; (2) information provided in the environmental 
report and other documents submitted by Entergy; (3) consultation with 
Federal, State, local, and Tribal agencies; (4) the NRC staff's 
independent environmental review; and (5) consideration of public 
comments received during the scoping process and on the Draft 
Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 3rd day of December, 2014.
