The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) received and is considering approval of one amendment request. The amendment request is for Fort Calhoun Station, Unit No. 1. For the amendment request, the NRC proposes to determine that it involves no significant hazards consideration. Because the amendment request contains sensitive unclassified non-safeguards information (SUNSI) and safeguards information (SGI), an order imposes procedures to obtain access to SUNSI and SGI for contention preparation.

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering the renewal of Special Nuclear Materials (SNM) License SNM-2509 for the Trojan Nuclear Plant Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI) (Trojan ISFSI) located in Columbia County, Oregon. The NRC has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) for this proposed license renewal in accordance with its regulations. Based on the EA, the NRC has concluded that a finding of no significant impact (FONSI) is appropriate. The NRC also is conducting a safety evaluation of the proposed license renewal.

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is undertaking activities to develop a report identifying best practices for establishment and operation of local community advisory boards associated with decommissioning activities, including lessons learned from existing boards, as required by the Nuclear Energy Innovation and Modernization Act (NEIMA). As part of developing the report, the NRC is hosting 11 public meetings and at least 1 webinar to consult with host States, communities within the emergency planning zone of an applicable nuclear power reactor, and existing local community advisory boards. The results of these meetings, along with any other data received as a result of the NRC's information collection activities associated with NEIMA, will be captured in a best practices report that will be submitted to Congress.
