Small Business Size Standards; Adoption of 2007 North American Industry Classification System for Size Standards
Document Number: E7-17151
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-08-29
Agency: Small Business Administration, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is amending its Small Business Size Regulations by incorporating the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) 2007 modifications of the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) in its table of small business size standards. These modifications are few in number and result in revisions to size standards for three industries and four activities within other industries. SBA believes that this rule is routine and non-controversial, and the Agency anticipates no significant adverse comment. If SBA receives a significant adverse comment, it will withdraw the rule. SBA is publishing concurrently in this issue of the Federal Register a proposed rule to achieve the same result, that is, to modify its Small Business Size Regulations as contemplated in this direct final rule.

State of Nevada; Receipt of Petition for Rulemaking
Document Number: E7-17106
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-08-29
Agency: Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has received and requests public comment on a petition for rulemaking filed by the State of Nevada (petitioner). The petition has been docketed by the NRC and has been assigned Docket No. PRM-2-14. The petitioner asserts that NRC will conduct a ``mandatory'' formal hearing if NRC dockets a Department of Energy (DOE) application for a construction authorization for the proposed Yucca Mountain repository and requests that the NRC amend its regulations governing rules of practice in hearings by specifying the issues to be heard in this ``mandatory'' hearing. The petitioner believes an amendment is necessary because NRC's rules of practice currently only specify issues to be heard in mandatory hearings on nuclear reactor construction permits.
