Friends United for Sustainable Energy; Denial of Petition for Rulemaking
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is denying a petition for rulemaking (PRM-54-4) submitted by Susan Shapiro, Esquire, Friends United for Sustainable Energy. The petitioner requested that the NRC issue an order to enjoin the NRC from considering any new license applications until the NRC can amend its regulations so that the regulations do not suppress and/or eliminate a stakeholder's right to redress, due process and equal protection in the licensing renewal process. A notice of receipt of this petition was not published in the Federal Register.
Notice of Availability of Final Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact Related to the License Termination Plan for the Rancho Seco Nuclear Generating Station
Notice is hereby given that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing an environmental assessment (EA) related to the license termination plan (LTP) for the Rancho Seco Nuclear Generating Station, dated April 12, 2006. The EA was developed as part of the NRC decision-making process on whether or not to approve the LTP that will result in subsequent release of the site from NRC licensing for unrestricted use of the site (as defined in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 20.1402, ``Radiological Criteria for Unrestricted Use''). The scope of the EA is the determination of the adequacy of the radiation release criteria and the final status survey as presented in the LTP. The EA specifically examines potential impacts on land use, water resources, and human health from structures and/or residual materials that will be present at the site at the time the site is released and the license is terminated. The EA also identifies compliance with section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.
