Sunshine Act Meetings, 14141-14142 [2019-07068]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 68 / Tuesday, April 9, 2019 / Notices continues to monitor FENOC’s decommissioning financial assurance for its reactors and ISFSIs to ensure adequate funding and compliance with requirements for decommissioning funding. The Petition Review Board (PRB) determined that no further actions were needed, and the NRC made no changes to the final director’s decision as a result of this comment. Comment 2 (from the petitioner’s letter dated January 22, 2019, page 2): The Environmental Law and Policy Center (ELPC) requested that the NRC postpone acting upon the proposed director’s decision and hold open ELPC’s petition until the NRC can review the December 31, 2018, decommissioning funding status information. Response 2: In the proposed director’s decision, the NRC described the existing requirements and processes in place to monitor the decommissioning funding status of the licensees. If the report demonstrates that FENOC has sufficient funding in its trust, then no further action is necessary. For licensees that are no longer rate-regulated or do not have access to a non-bypassable charge, as is the case for FENOC and NG, any shortfalls identified in the report must be corrected by the time the next decommissioning funding status reports are due (March 31, 2020). The PRB determined that no further actions were needed, and the NRC made no changes to the final director’s decision as a result of this comment. amozie on DSK9F9SC42PROD with NOTICES Comment 3 (from the petitioner’s letter dated January 22, 2019, pages 2 and 3): If the NRC does not act now to ensure that FES, FENOC, and NG reserve adequate funds for decommissioning, parent company FE could seek to fully extricate itself from any decommissioning obligations before the NRC can identify the extent of the funding shortfalls. Response 3: As stated in the proposed director’s decision, the U.S. Department of Justice, and the NRC’s Office of the General Counsel, are working closely together to represent the NRC’s interests in the bankruptcy proceeding, including protection and preservation of the decommissioning trust funds and continued compliance with decommissioning requirements. The proceeding in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court may result in changes to FENOC’s debt structure, including reorganization VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:15 Apr 08, 2019 Jkt 247001 and the transfer of control of the reactor operating licenses. Any such license transfers would be subject to NRC review and approval. As such, NRC approval of a license transfer would be required before FE could be removed from the current corporate structure for purposes relating to NRC licensing. NRC license transfer reviews include, among other things, a review of the applicant’s financial qualifications, technical qualifications, and decommissioning funding. To approve the license transfer, the NRC must find that the applicant has demonstrated that there is reasonable assurance that sufficient funds will be available for the decommissioning process. Ultimately, the licensee is responsible for compliance with NRC decommissioning financial assurance regulations, and the NRC will continue to monitor the remaining licensee’s continued compliance. While the bankruptcy proceeding is in progress, and until license termination, licensees are required to continue to comply with NRC regulations. The PRB determined that no further actions were needed, and the NRC made no changes to the final director’s decision as a result of this comment. Comment 4 (from the petitioner’s letter dated January 22, 2019, page 3): There is no suggestion in the proposed Director’s Decision that the NRC has reviewed Chapter 11 monthly statements of financial affairs, nor that it has assessed the status of the Chapter 11 proceedings. Response 4: As stated in the proposed director’s decision, the U.S. Department of Justice and the NRC’s Office of the General Counsel are working closely together to represent the NRC’s interests in the bankruptcy proceeding, including protection and preservation of the decommissioning trust funds and continued compliance with decommissioning requirements. The U.S. Department of Justice has reviewed Chapter 11 monthly statements of financial affairs, and is actively involved in the status of the Chapter 11 proceedings. The PRB determined that no further actions were needed, and the NRC made no changes to the final director’s decision as a result of this comment.
