j. Description of Application: Public Law 108-12 authorizes the Commission to reinstate the license for the Carlyle Project as of June 24, 2000, and to extend the time during which the licensee is required to commence the construction of the project for three consecutive 2-year periods beyond June 26, 2001. The Applicant accordingly requests that the deadline for commencement of project construction be extended to July 26, 2005, and that the deadline for completion of construction also be extended. Southwestern and the City of Carlyle, Illinois, have reached an agreement whereby they will cooperate in seeking reinstatement of the license, extension of the construction schedule, and transfer of the license from Southwestern to Carlyle. Public notice of the joint application for approval of transfer of the license, also filed on August 19, 2003, will be issued at such time as the license is reinstated.
