SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background In accordance with § 51.118 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, the NRC is making available final Supplement 54 to the GEIS regarding the renewal of Exelon operating licenses NPF–37 and NPF–66 for an additional 20 years of operation for Byron.

Final Supplement 54 to the GEIS is available as indicated in the ADDRESSES section of this document. II. Discussion As discussed in chapter 5 of the final Supplement 54 to the GEIS, the NRC determined that the adverse environmental impacts of license renewal for Byron 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 Exelon; (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.

Issuance of this temporary exemption will not remove the requirement for Lost Creek to provide adequate financial assurance through an approved mechanism, but will allow the NRC staff to further evaluate whether the State of Wyoming’s separate account provision for financial assurance instruments it holds is consistent with the NRC’s requirement for a standby trust agreement.

Regulations, the NRC is making available final Supplement 54 to the

unreasonable. This recommendation is based on: (1) The analysis and 
findings in the GEIS; (2) information provided in the environmental

Federal, State, local, and Tribal agencies; (4) the NRC staff's
