Trespassing on DOE Property: Kansas City Plant Facilities
DOE hereby amends and adds to previously published site descriptions of various DOE and contractor occupied facilities as off- limit areas. In accordance with 1O CFR part 860, it is a federal crime under section 229 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (42 U.S.C. 2278a), for unauthorized persons to enter into or upon the facilities of the Kansas City Plant of the United States Department of Energy, National Nuclear Security Administration, Kirtland Operations operating area. The facilities are described in this notice. If unauthorized entry into or upon these properties is into an area enclosed by a fence, wall, floor, roof or other such structural barrier, conviction for such unauthorized entry may result in a fine not to exceed $100,000 or imprisonment for not more than one year, or both. If unauthorized entry into or upon the properties is into an area not enclosed by a fence, wall, floor, roof, or other such structural barrier, conviction for such unauthorized entry may result in a fine of not more than $5,000.' By operation of law, the Criminal Fine Improvements Act of 1987, Public Law 100-185, 101 Stat. 1279 (1987), increased the fine amounts from $1000/$5000 to $5000/$100,000. See, e.g., U.S. v. Lentsch, 369 F.3d 948, 950 (6th Cir. 2004) (quoting 58 FR 47984 (Sept. 14, 1993)); see also 10 CFR 860.5.
Proposed Agency Information Collection
The Department of Energy (DOE) invites public comment on a proposed collection of information that DOE is developing for submission to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. This proposed collection would be for use of the American Assured Fuel Supply (AFS). DOE created the AFS, a reserve of low enriched uranium (LEU) to serve as a backup fuel supply for foreign recipients (to be supplied through U.S. persons) or for domestic recipients in the event of a fuel supply disruption. DOE published a Notice of Availability for the AFS on August 18, 2011. DOE now needs to publish an application form to clarify the information that must be provided in a request to access the material in the AFS, as set forth in the Notice of Availability. 76 FR 51357, 51358. This application form is necessary in order for DOE to identify if applicants meet basic requirements for use of the AFS and implement this important nonproliferation initiative.
