ACTION: License amendment request; notice of opportunity to comment, request a hearing, and petition for leave to intervene; order imposing procedures. AGENCY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) received and is considering approval of two amendment requests. The amendment requests are for Perry Nuclear Power Plant, Unit 1 and Three Mile Island Nuclear Station, Unit 1.

BILLING CODE 7590-01-C
    Notices entitled ``Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Station; 
Consideration of Approval of Transfer of License'' and ``Crystal River 
Unit 3 Nuclear Generating Plant; Consideration of Approval of Transfer 
of License,'' were published in the Federal Register (FR) on April 2, 
2021 (86 FR 17415 and 86 FR 17412, respectively). The NRC did not 
receive any comments or hearing requests related to these notices.
    Under 10 CFR 50.80 and 10 CFR 72.50, no license for a production or 
utilization facility or ISFSI, or any right thereunder, shall be 
transferred, either voluntarily or involuntarily, directly or 
indirectly, through transfer of control of the license to any person, 
unless the Commission gives its consent in writing. Upon review of the 
information in the application, and other information before the 
Commission, the NRC staff has determined that the Applicants can 
indirectly transfer their licenses via the intermediary holding company 
structure proposed in the application. The proposed transferees are 
qualified to have indirect control over the holders of the licenses and

application regarding the proposed indirect license transfers is 
approved for Vermont Yankee, CR3, and their respective ISFSIs.
    It is further ordered that after receipt of all required regulatory

closing of the transfer, no later than two business days prior to the 
date of the closing of the transfer. Should the proposed indirect 
transfer not be completed within 1 year of the date of this Order, this
