Request at 5 n.8. To support its Request, the Postal Service filed an application for nonpublic treatment of materials filed under seal; a redacted copy of Governors’ Decision No. 11–6, which authorizes the product; a set of maximum and minimum prices; a statement of supporting justification, as required by 39 CFR 3020.32; a copy of proposed mail classification schedule language; a copy of the IMRS–FPO model agreement; a certification of compliance with 39 U.S.C. 3633(a); a redacted copy of a related management analysis; and supporting financial workpapers. In the attached statement of supporting justification, the Postal Service asserts the IMRS–FPO would close a gap in currently available postal product offerings and that the proposed product would generate new revenue and encourage growth in cross-border ecommerce via the postal channel. Id., Attachment 3 at 4. The Postal Service further contends that IMRS–FPO belongs on the competitive products list because it will not be subsidized by market dominant products, covers costs attributable to it, does not cause competitive products as a whole to fail to make the appropriate contribution to institutional costs, is part of a market over which the Postal Service does not exercise market dominance, and is not covered by the postal monopoly. Request at 2–4. II. Notice of Commission Action The Commission establishes Docket Nos. MC2015–68 and CP2015–99 to consider the Request pertaining to the addition of IMRS–FPO to the competitive products list.

I. Background

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has received, by 
letter dated April 24, 2015 (ADAMS Accession No. ML15114A437), a 
request from GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GE or licensee), to approve a 
partial site release of its Vallecitos Nuclear Center (VNC) site 
located at 6705 Vallecitos Rd, Sunol, California. The VNC site contains 
two facilities licensed as power reactors under part 50, ``Domestic 
Licensing of Production and Utilization Facilities,'' of Title 10 of 
the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR). Both units, Vallecitos 
Boiling Water Reactor (VBWR), NRC License DPR-1, Docket 50-18, and 
Empire State Atomic Development Agency Vallecitos Experimental 
Superheat Reactor (EVESR), NRC License DR-10, Docket 50-183, are shut 
down per NRC regulations in 10 CFR 50.82(a). These units are in 
``SAFSTOR'' mode awaiting the termination of the power reactor 
licenses. In accordance with 10 CFR 50.83, ``Release of Part of a Power 
Reactor Facility or Site for Unrestricted Use,'' the licensee requests 
release from the NRC licenses, for unrestricted use, of an 
approximately 610-acre parcel, in the northern section of the 
approximately 1,600 acre VNC site. The licensee is declaring the parcel 
as ``non-impacted'' per the definition in 10 CFR 50.2. Approval of the 
request will allow GE to sell the released portion to a non-GE 
controlled entity.
    The NRC will determine whether the licensee has adequately 
evaluated the effect of releasing the property per the requirements of 
10 CFR 50.83(a)(1), and determine whether the licensee's classification 
of any released areas as ``non-impacted'' is adequately justified. If 
the NRC determines that the licensee's submittal is adequate, the NRC 
will inform the licensee in writing that the release is approved.

II. Public Meeting

    The NRC will conduct a public meeting to discuss GE's request for 
approval of the partial site release.
    The meeting will be held on Wednesday, July 22, 2015, from 6:30 
p.m. until 8:30 p.m., Pacific Daylight Time, at the Holiday Inn Dublin, 
6680 Regional St., Dublin, CA 94568.
    This is a Category 3 public meeting where stakeholders are invited 
to fully engage NRC staff to provide a range of views, information, 
concerns and suggestions with regard to regulatory issues concerning 
the proposed action. After the licensee and NRC staff presentation 
portions of the meeting, the public is allowed to speak and ask 
questions. Comments can be provided orally or in writing to the NRC 
staff present at the meeting.
