Nuclear Regulatory Commission.


Petition for rulemaking: denial; correction.


On February 27, 2003 (68 FR 9023), the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published a notice of denial of a petition for rulemaking. The petition for rulemaking, dated July 12, 2002, had been filed with the Commission by the State of Nevada, and assigned Docket No. PRM-63-1. The petitioner had requested that the NRC amend its regulations governing the disposal of high-level radioactive waste in a proposed geologic repository at Yucca Mountain, Nevada. This action corrects a sentence in the notice of denial by restoring a word that was mistakenly omitted from the published document. This action also corrects an erroneous citation and a typographical error in the body of the notice.
