Who will be required or asked to respond: Applicants who apply for an early site permit (ESP), combined license (COL) or a construction permit (CP) or operating license (OL) on or after January 10, 1997. 7. The estimated number of annual responses: 0.66. 8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 0.66. 9. The estimated number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request: 48,180 hours (73,000 hours per application × 0.66 applications). 10. Abstract: 10 CFR part 100, ‘‘Reactor Site Criteria,’’ establishes approval requirements for proposed sites for the purpose of constructing and operating stationary power and testing reactors. Subpart B, ‘‘Evaluation Factors for Stationary Power Reactor Site Applications on or After January 10, 1997,’’ requirements apply to applicants who apply for an ESP, COL or a CP or OL on or after January 10, 1997. This clearance is necessary since the NRC is expecting approximately two COL applications over the next 3 years. The applicants must provide information regarding the physical characteristics of the site in addition to the potential for natural phenomena and man-made hazards. This includes information on meteorological hazards (such as hurricanes, tornadoes, snowfall, and extreme temperatures), hydrologic hazards (such as floods, tsunami, and seiches) geologic hazards (such as faulting, seismic hazards, and the maximum credible earthquake) and factors such as population density, the proximity of man-related hazards (e.g., airports, dams, transportation routes, military and chemical facilities), and site hydrological and atmospheric dispersion characteristics. The NRC staff reviews the submitted information and, if necessary, generates a request for additional information. The staff meets with the applicant and conducts a site visit to resolve any open issues. When the open issues have been resolved, the staff writes the final safety evaluation report, which is published and used as a basis for the remainder of the NRC licensing process. Dated: April 15, 2021. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. David C. Cullison, NRC Clearance Officer, Office of the Chief Information Officer.

Ordering Paragraphs I. Introduction On September 20, 2019, the Commission authorized the Postal Service to proceed with a 2-year market test of an experimental product called Plus One, which is scheduled to expire on September 30, 2021.1 Plus One is an advertising card that is mailed as an add-on mailpiece with a USPS Marketing Mail Letters marriage mail envelope containing multiple advertising mailpieces.2 On April 13, 2021, the Postal Service filed a request pursuant to 39 U.S.C. 3641 and 39 CFR 3045.11 to extend the duration of the Plus One market test.3 II. Background The Postal Service requests a 12month extension of the Plus One market test, which if approved would set a new expiration date of September 30, 2022. Request at 2. It asserts that the Plus One market test meets the criteria for 1 Order Authorizing Plus One Market Test, September 20, 2019, at 15 (Order No. 5239). 2 United States Postal Service Notice of Market Test of Experimental Product—Plus One, August 13, 2019, at 1. 3 United States Postal Service Request for Extension of Market Test, April 13, 2021 (Request).

It states that the extension is ‘‘necessary to determine the feasibility or desirability of the [Plus One] experimental product and inform any Postal Service decision to create a permanent product.’’ Id. The Postal Service asserts that the extension is necessary for three reasons. First, the market test began right before the first wave of the COVID–19 pandemic in the United States, which disrupted all mail generally and USPS Marketing Mail specifically. Id. at 2. It states that the sharp decline in USPS Marketing Mail affected Plus One volumes and limited the Postal Service’s ability to collect data for a full year. Id. It notes that it needs more time to collect meaningful data to compensate for the decline in mail volume that occurred during the pandemic. Id. Second, the Postal Service asserts that if it decides to add Plus One to the Market Dominant product list as a permanent product, it would need more time to finalize the criteria for the permanent product and to program Information Technology solutions to manage the permanent product. Id. The Postal Service notes that mailers would also need time to adjust their own systems accordingly. Id. Third, the Postal Service states that it ‘‘would like to minimize any potential gap between the end of the market test’s operational run and the availability of a potential, new, permanent product.’’ Id. It notes that such a gap could limit small businesses from advertising with the product and impede the ability of current Plus One users to maintain their client base. Id. In the Request, the Postal Service provides information required by 39 CFR 3045.11(b)(3) and (b)(4). It states the total revenue received by the Postal Service from the Plus One market test was $4.87 million during FY 2020 and $2.05 million during FY 2021, Quarter 1. Id. at 2–3. It estimates that it will collect $7.70 million during FY 2021 if market trends and customer adoption metrics reflected in the FY 2021, Quarter 1 data collection report continue through FY 2021. Id. at 3. It estimates it will receive $10.8 million through FY 2022. Id. The Postal Service concludes that the Plus One market test meets the criteria for an extension and asks that the Commission grant the extension to allow the Postal Service to continue collecting Plus One market test data and determine the feasibility and desirability of the experimental product.

As proposed, new paragraph (d)(2) of Rule 7.37–E would provide: The Exchange may adjust its calculation of the PBBO based on information about orders it sends to Away Markets with protected quotations, execution reports received from those Away Markets, and certain orders received by the Exchange. This proposed rule text is consistent with the Exchange’s disclosure in the Datafeed Filing and adds specificity that the Exchange may adjust its calculation of the PBBO based on execution reports received from Away Markets and certain orders received by the Exchange.7 Proposed Rule 7.37–E(d)(2) is based on MEMX LLC (‘‘MEMX’’) Rule 13.4(b) with two non-substantive differences.8 First, the Exchange proposes to use the term ‘‘PBBO,’’ which is the term used in the Exchange’s rules for the best-priced 4 The term ‘‘PBBO’’ is defined in Rule 1.1 to mean the Best Protected Bid and the Best Protected Offer, which in turn mean the highest Protected Bid and the lowest Protected Offer, which refer to quotations in an NMS stock that is (i) displayed by an Automated Trading Center; (ii) disseminated pursuant to an effective national market system plan; and (iii) an Automated Quotation that is the best bid or best offer of a national securities exchange or the best bid or best offer of a national securities association. The term NBBO is defined to mean the national best bid and offer. The Exchange notes that the NBBO may differ from the PBBO because the NBBO includes Manual Quotations, which are defined as any quotation other than an automated quotation. 17 CFR 242.600(b)(37). 5 The Exchange proposes non-substantive amendments to Rule 7.37–E(d) to update the names of the exchanges listed in the table by replacing the term ‘‘Bats’’ with ‘‘Cboe,’’ adding reference to ‘‘BYX’’ for one of the Cboe exchanges, replacing the term ‘‘NASDAQ’’ with ‘‘Nasdaq,’’ and adding the word ‘‘The’’ before Nasdaq Stock Market LLC. 6 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 74409 (March 2, 2015), 80 FR 12221 (March 6, 2015) (SR– NYSEArca–2015–11) (Notice of filing and immediate effectiveness of proposed rule change) (‘‘Datafeed Filing’’). 7 The Exchange does not adjust its calculation of the NBBO based on information about orders sent to Away Markets, execution reports from Away Markets, or certain orders received by the Exchange. 8 MEMX Rule 13.4(b) provides: ‘‘The Exchange may adjust its calculation of the NBBO based on information about orders sent to other venues with protected quotations, execution reports received from those venues, and certain orders received by the Exchange.’’ E:\FR\FM\20APN1.SGM 20APN1

II. Background

    The Postal Service requests a 12-month extension of the Plus One 
market test, which if approved would set a new expiration date of 
September 30, 2022. Request at 2. It asserts that the Plus One market 
test meets the criteria for granting an extension under 39 U.S.C. 
3641(d)(2) and 39 CFR 3045.11. Id. at 1. It states that the extension 
is ``necessary to determine the feasibility or desirability of the 
[Plus One] experimental product and inform any Postal Service decision 
to create a permanent product.'' Id.
    The Postal Service asserts that the extension is necessary for 
three reasons. First, the market test began right before the first wave 
of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States, which disrupted all mail 
generally and USPS Marketing Mail specifically. Id. at 2. It states 
that the sharp decline in USPS Marketing Mail affected Plus One volumes 
and limited the Postal Service's ability to collect data for a full 
year. Id. It notes that it needs more time to collect meaningful data 
to compensate for the decline in mail volume that occurred during the 
pandemic. Id.
    Second, the Postal Service asserts that if it decides to add Plus 
One to the Market Dominant product list as a permanent product, it 
would need more time to finalize the criteria for the permanent product 
and to program Information Technology solutions to manage the permanent 
product. Id. The Postal Service notes that mailers would also need time 
to adjust their own systems accordingly. Id. Third, the Postal Service 
states that it ``would like to minimize any potential gap between the 
end of the market test's operational run and the availability of a 
potential, new, permanent product.'' Id. It notes that such a gap could 
limit small businesses from advertising with the product and impede the 
ability of current Plus One users to maintain their client base. Id.
    In the Request, the Postal Service provides information required by 
39 CFR 3045.11(b)(3) and (b)(4). It states the total revenue received 
by the Postal Service from the Plus One market test was $4.87 million 
during FY 2020 and $2.05 million during FY 2021, Quarter 1. Id. at 2-3. 
It estimates that it will collect $7.70 million during FY 2021 if 
market trends and customer adoption metrics reflected in the FY 2021, 
Quarter 1 data collection report continue through FY 2021. Id. at 3. It 
estimates it will receive $10.8 million through FY 2022. Id.
    The Postal Service concludes that the Plus One market test meets 
the criteria for an extension and asks that the Commission grant the 
extension to allow the Postal Service to continue collecting Plus One 
market test data and determine the feasibility and desirability of the 
experimental product. Id.
