Ethyl Alcohol for Fuel Use: Determination of the Base Quantity of Imports
Document Number: E6-22637
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-01-05
Agency: International Trade Commission, Agencies and Commissions
Section 7 of the Steel Trade Liberalization Program Implementation Act of 1989 (``the Act''), as amended (19 U.S.C. 2703 note), which concerns local feedstock requirements for fuel ethyl alcohol imported by the United States from CBERA-beneficiary countries, requires the Commission to determine annually the U.S. domestic market for fuel ethyl alcohol during the 12-month period ending on the preceding September 30. The domestic market determination made by the Commission is to be used to establish the ``base quantity'' of imports that can be imported with a zero percent local feedstock requirement. The base quantity to be used by the U.S. Customs Service in the administration of the law is the greater of 60 million gallons or 7 percent of U.S. consumption as determined by the Commission. Beyond the base quantity of imports, progressively higher local feedstock requirements are placed on imports of fuel ethyl alcohol and mixtures from the CBERA-beneficiary countries. For the 12-month period ending September 30, 2006, the Commission has determined the level of U.S. consumption of fuel ethyl alcohol to be 5.03 billion gallons. Seven percent of this amount is 351.8 million gallons (these figures have been rounded). Therefore, the base quantity for 2007 should be 351.8 million gallons.

Petition for Rulemaking Filed by Scott Portzline, Three Mile Island Alert; Consideration of Petition
Document Number: E6-22582
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-01-05
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
On November 2, 2001 (66 FR 55603), the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published for public comment a petition for rulemaking (PRM) filed by Scott Portzline, Three Mile Island Alert. The petitioner requested that the NRC regulations governing physical protection of plants and materials be amended to require NRC licensees to post at least one armed guard at each entrance to the ``owner controlled areas'' (OCAs) surrounding all U.S. nuclear power plants. The petitioner states that this should be accomplished by adding armed site protection officers (SPOs) to the security forcesnot by simply moving SPOs from their protected area (PA) posts to the OCA entrances. The petitioner believes that its proposed amendment would provide an additional layer of security that would complement existing measures against radiological sabotage and would be consistent with the long- standing principle of defense-in-depth. This document informs the public that PRM-73-11 and public comments received in response to the above notice will be considered in a proposed rulemaking, ``Power Reactor Security Requirements,'' published in the Federal Register on October 26, 2006 (71 FR 62664). This rulemaking proposes extensive revisions to the NRC regulations in 10 CFR parts 50, 72, and 73 that address security requirements for nuclear power reactor licensees and certain materials licensees. The comment period on that proposed rule expires on February 23, 2007. Because the public has already had opportunity to comment on PRM-73-11, the NRC is requesting that comments focus on the proposed rule provisions in light of the subject PRM. Refer to the preamble of the proposed rule for instructions on how to provide comments.
Power Reactor Security Requirements; Extension of Comment Period
Document Number: E6-22581
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-01-05
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
On October 26, 2006 (71 FR 62664), the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published for public comment a proposed rule that would amend its current security regulations and would add new security requirements pertaining to nuclear power reactors. Additionally, this rulemaking includes new proposed security requirements for Category I strategic special nuclear material (SSNM) facilities for access to enhanced weapons and firearms background checks. The proposed rulemaking would: Make generically applicable security requirements imposed by Commission orders issued after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, based upon experience and insights gained by the Commission during implementation; fulfill certain provisions of the Energy Policy Act of 2005; add several new requirements that resulted from insights from implementation of the security orders, review of site security plans, and implementation of the enhanced baseline inspection program and force-on-force exercises; update the regulatory framework in preparation for receiving license applications for new reactors; and impose requirements to assess and manage site activities that can adversely affect safety and security. A 75-day comment period was provided for the propose rule, set to expire on January 9, 2007. Comments specific to the information collection aspects of the proposed rule were due on November 27, 2006. The proposed rule deadline is extended from the original January 9, 2007, deadline to February 23, 2007, and the information collections analysis deadline is extended from the original November 27, 2006 deadline to January 11, 2007.
