Start Preamble

Notice is hereby given that by petition dated February 3, 2003, Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich (petitioner) of the United States House of Representatives has requested that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) revoke the FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Company's (FirstEnergy's) license to operate the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station in Oak Harbor, Ohio.

As the basis for this request, the petitioner states that FirstEnergy “has operated outside the parameters of their operating license for several years, has violated numerous federal laws, rules and regulations, and has hidden information from the NRC and lied to the NRC to justify the continuing operation of the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station.”

The request is being treated pursuant to 10 CFR 2.206 of the Commission's regulations. The request has been referred to the Director of the NRC's Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation (NRR). As provided by Section 2.206, appropriate action will be taken on this petition within a reasonable time.

A copy of the petition is available in the Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) for inspection at the Commission's Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland, and from the ADAMS Public Library component on the NRC's Web site,​reading-rm/​adams.html (the Public Electronic Reading Room) using the Accession No. ML030370067.
