By letter dated January 31, 2005, the Department of Energy (DOE or licensee) submitted an application to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission), in accordance with Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 72.56, requesting the amendment of the Three Mile Island 2 (TMI-2) Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI) license for the ISFSI located in Butte County, Idaho. DOE proposes to change the technical specification corrective actions if the 5 year leak test of the dry shielded canisters fails.

This application was docketed under 10 CFR part 72; the ISFSI Docket No. is 72-20 and will remain the same for this action. Upon approval of the Commission, the TMI-2 ISFSI license, SNM-2508, would be amended to allow this action.

The Commission may issue either a notice of hearing or a notice of proposed action and opportunity for hearing in accordance with 10 CFR 72.46(b)(1) regarding the proposed amendment or, if a determination is made that the proposed amendment does not present a genuine issue as to whether public health and safety will be significantly affected, take immediate action on the proposed amendment in accordance with 10 CFR 72.46(b)(2) and provide notice of the action taken and an opportunity for interested persons to request a hearing on whether the action should be rescinded or modified.
