Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Petition for rulemaking; notice of receipt; correction.
On November 1, 2002 (67 FR 66588), the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published for public comment a notice of receipt of a petition for rulemaking, dated September 4, 2002, which was filed with the Commission by Lawrence T. Christian, et. al. The petition was docketed by the NRC on September 23, 2002, and has been assigned Docket No. PRM-50-79. The petition requests that the NRC amend its regulations regarding offsite emergency plans for nuclear power plants to insure that all day care centers and nursery schools in the vicinity of nuclear power facilities are properly protected in the event of a radiological emergency. This action corrects an erroneous Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) accession number cited for the petition under the ADDRESSES heading in the notice of receipt. This action also corrects two typographical errors in the body of the notice.
