Download as PDF jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 74 / Thursday, April 16, 2020 / Notices women and men in scientific and engineering positions.’’ NCSES has historically met these legislative mandates through its suite of surveys and biennial publications that measure the education, employment, and demographic characteristics of the nation’s college-educated scientists and engineers. However, an emerging research and policy interest in the STW creates a need for new data to expand and supplement NCSES’s efforts on the college-educated science and engineering workforce. Expected Respondents: All previous respondents to the 2018 American Community Survey, collected by the U.S. Census Bureau, are eligible to be selected to participate in the initial NTEWS. Approximately 40,000 adults, ages 16–75 and not enrolled in high school, will be selected for the NTEWS sample. The NTEWS sample design will meet the needs of both NCSES and NCES by providing coverage of the workforce-eligible adult population and including an oversample of adults who are in skilled technical occupations. Estimate of Burden: The expected response rate is 62.5 percent, or 25,000 completed cases. The amount of time to complete the survey may vary depending on an individual’s circumstances and the mode of the collection (web, paper, or telephone). NCSES estimates an average completion time of 15 minutes. NCSES estimates that the average annual burden for the initial NTEWS over the course of the three-year OMB clearance period will be no more than 2,084 hours [(25,000 completed cases × 15 minutes)/3 years]. Comments: Comments are invited on (a) aspects of the data collection effort (including, but not limited to, the following: The availability of administrative and supplemental sources of data on the skilled technical workforce, survey content, contact strategy, and statistical methods); (b) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of NCSES, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (c) the accuracy of the NCSES’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (d) ways to enhance the quality, use, and clarity of the information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

The proposed amendment would provide a one-time extension of steam generator tube inspections to allow the inspections to be conducted after three operating cycles instead of after the current required two operating cycles. The amendment is necessary to avoid conflicts with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations regarding social distancing to prevent the spread of the COVID–19 virus. The amendment also avoids a possible scenario in which expertise required to conduct the inspections is lost because of COVID–19 infections. DATES: Submit comments by April 30, 2020.

II. Introduction The NRC is considering issuance of an amendment to Renewed Facility Operating License No. NPF–77, issued to Exelon Generation Company, LLC, for operation of the Braidwood Station, Unit No. 2, located in Will County, Illinois. The proposed amendment would provide a one-time extension of steam generator tube inspections to allow the inspections to be conducted after three operating cycles instead of after the current required two operating cycles. The licensee states that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued recommendations advising isolation activities (e.g., social distancing, group size limitations, selfquarantining, etc.) to prevent the spread of the COVID–19 Virus. The nature of the steam generator inspections conflicts with the recommendations in that they require workers to be in close proximity to each other in a hot and radiological environment that increases the likelihood of individuals contracting COVID–19 and potentially inducing a rapid spread. Additionally, these inspections require a specialty vendor that maintains unique and complex qualifications. Losing resources due to a virus spread would cause a situation where the proper technical knowledge would not be available to satisfactorily complete this work (minimal 14-day isolation and likely to be more than one individual based on having to work in close proximity for the work). Based on an initial review, the NRC staff finds that exigent circumstances exist under 10 CFR 50.91(a)(6). The licensee and Commission need to act quickly and time does not permit a 30day prior comment period because the plant would be prevented from resuming operations following the refueling outage occurring after the E:\FR\FM\16APN1.SGM 16APN1
