Proposed Establishment of Class E Airspace; Grand Chenier, LA, 89012-89014 [2016-29430]

Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with PROPOSALS 89012 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 237 / Friday, December 9, 2016 / Proposed Rules shutdown, and establishes the requirements that must be satisfied for a reactor to restart from an extended shutdown.’’ In addition, the petitioners request NRC issue a final rule that explicitly states that ‘‘a licensee providing the NRC with written certification under 10 CFR [title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations] 50.82(a)(1)(i) of permanent cessation of reactor operations cannot retract that certification and opt to place the reactor into an extended shutdown en route to resumption of reactor operations.’’ The petitioners propose two criteria to define when a reactor is placed into an extended shutdown. First, similar to how licensees notify the NRC of their intentions to permanently cease reactor operations under 10 CFR 50.4(b)(8) and 10 CFR 50.82(a)(1)(i), a licensee would ‘‘notify the NRC of its intention to put a reactor into an extended shutdown.’’ Second, a reactor that has been shutdown for 2 years but is not actively pursuing restart under a formal NRC process would fall under the petitioners’ proposed new regulatory requirements for a reactor in extended shutdown. The petitioners propose the NRC issue a final rule requiring licensees be required to submit a ‘‘Reactor Extended Shutdown Activities Report (RESAR)’’ prior to a reactor entering extended shutdown, similar to the Post-Shutdown Decommissioning Activities Report required by 10 CFR 50.82(a)(4)(i). The petitioners listed seven activities, at a minimum, which should be described in the RESAR. The petitioners note that if the regulations ‘‘do[es] not generically address topics like emergency planning exercises, Design Basis Threats and associated physical protection measures, and handling operating experience (i.e., NRC bulletins and generic letters as well as vendor advisories and manual updates), the RESAR should describe how these topics will be handled.’’ The petitioners state a new rule should contain requirements for a reactor exiting extended shutdown by either of two pathways: Restart of the reactor or enter decommissioning. For reactor restart, the petitioners state that ‘‘the final rule must establish how deferred and suspended activities are resumed’’ and ‘‘for each activity deferred, suspended, or reduced during the period of reactor extended shutdown, the final rule and its associated regulatory guidance must clearly establish how these activities are resumed or reinstated.’’ The petitioners state that the final rule must clearly establish when and to what extent a power ascension startup program is required for reactor re-operation. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:22 Dec 08, 2016 Jkt 241001 The petitioners request the NRC issue a final rule that addresses ‘‘whether decommissioning funds may be used for activities during a reactor extended shutdown and, if so, the criteria and conditions governing use of decommissioning funds.’’ The petitioners assert that the final rule ‘‘must require licensees to submit a preliminary decommissioning cost estimate to the NRC at five-year intervals throughout the period of reactor extended shutdown.’’ IV. Request for Comment The NRC is seeking public comment on the following questions: 1. The petition outlines a scenario where a reactor is in an extended shutdown condition due to economic or other reasons and would at some unspecified later date return to operation. The petition uses the Brown’s Ferry Nuclear Plant as an example, where the Tennessee Valley Authority voluntarily shut down one unit from 1985 to 2007. Are there any facilities or licensees who may be likely to use the petitioners’ extended shutdown scenario in the future? Please provide technical, scientific, or other data or information demonstrating the basis for your position. 2. The petitioners contend that the NRC’s existing regulations were promulgated for operating reactors, and that specific regulations are needed to address non-operating reactors in an ‘‘extended shutdown.’’ Assuming the extended shutdown scenario is credible, in what specific ways are the existing regulations identified in the PRM insufficient to address the scenario described by the petitioners? Please provide technical, scientific, or other data or information demonstrating the basis for your position. 3. Assuming that the existing regulations identified in the PRM are insufficient to address the extended shutdown scenario, what specific changes to those regulations are needed to facilitate the requested rulemaking? Please provide technical, scientific, or other data or information demonstrating the basis for your position. 4. The petition describes a plant in an ‘‘extended shutdown,’’ and proposes two criteria to enter into this nonoperating state (submission of 10 CFR 50.82(a)(1)(i) and 10 CFR 50.4(b)(8) notifications; and a shutdown period of 2 years). Should the term ‘‘extended shutdown’’ be defined in 10 CFR 50.2, ‘‘Definitions,’’ and should the regulations specify the timeframe for this scenario? Please provide technical, scientific, or other data or information PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 demonstrating the basis for your position. 5. Given the NRC’s long-standing, well-understood Reactor Oversight Program (ROP), what potential changes would need to be considered to ensure adequate oversight of a reactor during an extended shutdown? Please provide technical, scientific, or other data or information demonstrating the basis for your position. 6. What additional reporting to the NRC should be required for a reactor in an extended shutdown, and with what level of detail and frequency (e.g., the potential changes to the submission of the decommissioning trust fund reports)? Please provide technical, scientific, or other data or information demonstrating the basis for your position. V. Conclusion The NRC has determined that the petition generally meets the threshold sufficiency requirements for docketing a PRM under 10 CFR 2.802, ‘‘Petition for rulemaking—requirements for filing,’’ and the PRM has been docketed as PRM–50–114. The NRC will examine the issues raised in PRM–50–114, to determine whether they should be considered in the rulemaking process. The petitioners have requested a public meeting with the NRC for the purpose of reaching a common understanding of the problems to be resolved by the requested rulemaking. Unlike the public meeting opportunity afforded in the NRC’s § 2.206 process mentioned in the PRM, there is no public meeting opportunity required in the petition for rulemaking process (§ 2.802). At this time, the NRC does not intend to hold a public meeting on the PRM. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 5th day of December, 2016. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Annette L. Vietti-Cook, Secretary of the Commission.

Availability and Summary of Documents Proposed for Incorporation by Reference This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11A, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016. FAA Order 7400.11A is publicly available as listed in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11A lists Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and reporting points. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by establishing Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6-mile radius of Little Pecan Island Airport, Grand Chenier, LA, to accommodate new special instrument approach procedures. Controlled airspace is needed for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. Class E airspace areas are published in Paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.11A, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in the Order. Regulatory Notices and Analyses The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current, It, therefore: (1) is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Information The Railroad Retirement Act (RRA) provides monthly annuities for railroad employees based on age and years of service in the railroad industry. Section 14(b)(2) of the RRA [45 U.S.C. 231m(b)(2)] provides that portions of an employee annuity calculated under sections 2(b), 3(b), 3(f), and 3(h) of the RRA [45 U.S.C. 231a(b), 231b(b), 231c(f), and 231c(h)] may be characterized as community property and subject to distribution in accordance with a court decree of divorce, annulment, or legal separation or the terms of any court- PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 approved property settlement incident to any such court decree. The current version of Board regulations at Title 20 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 295, sections 295.1–7 implement this provision. The current version of section 295.5(d) of the Board’s regulations explains that payments to a spouse or former spouse pursuant to a court order will not be made to the heirs, legatees, creditors, or assignees of a deceased spouse or former spouse. Any annuity amounts due to the spouse or former spouse but unpaid at the time of the spouse or former spouse’s death will be made in accordance with the Board’s regulations governing payments of employee annuities due but unpaid at the death of the employee. At the time section 295.5(d) was published in the Federal Register, the Board regulations governing employee annuities due but unpaid at death were found in section 234.1 of the Board’s regulations. Part 234 of the Board’s regulations has since been amended and the section governing employee annuities due but unpaid at death is now designated as section 234.31 of the Board’s regulations. Proposed Changes We propose to amend section 295.5(d) of the Board’s regulations to provide the correct cross-reference to the section of the Board’s regulations governing employee annuities due but unpaid at death. This change is not intended to be substantive. Clarity of This Proposed Rule Executive Order 12866, as supplemented by Executive Order 13563, requires each agency to write all rules in plain language. In addition to your substantive comments on this proposed rule, we invite your comments on how to make it easier to understand. For example: • Are the requirements for the rule clearly stated? • Have we organized the material to meet your needs? • What else could we do to make the rule easier to understand? • Does the rule contain technical language or jargon that is not clear? • Would a different format make the rule easier to understand? When will we start to use this rule? We will not use this rule until we evaluate public comments and publish a final rule in the Federal Register. All final rules we issue include an effective date. We will continue to use our current rules until that date. If we publish a final rule, we will include a E:\FR\FM\09DEP1.SGM 09DEP1

Availability and Summary of Documents Proposed for Incorporation by 
Reference

    This document proposes to amend FAA Order 7400.11A, Airspace 
Designations and Reporting Points, dated August 3, 2016, and effective 
September 15, 2016. FAA Order 7400.11A is publicly available as listed 
in the ADDRESSES section of this document. FAA Order 7400.11A lists 
Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, air traffic service routes, and 
reporting points.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14, Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) Part 71 by establishing Class E airspace extending 
upward from 700 feet above the surface within a 6-mile radius of Little 
Pecan Island Airport, Grand Chenier, LA, to accommodate new special 
instrument approach procedures. Controlled airspace is needed for the 
safety and management of IFR operations at the airport.
    Class E airspace areas are published in Paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 
7400.11A, dated August 3, 2016, and effective September 15, 2016, which 
is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace 
designation listed in this document will be published subsequently in 
the Order.

Regulatory Notices and Analyses

    The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves 
an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current, 
It, therefore: (1) is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under 
Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ``significant rule'' under DOT 
Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); 
and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the 
anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that 
will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this rule, when promulgated, would not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
