Start Preamble

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) has granted the request of Entergy Nuclear Vermont Yankee, LLC and Entergy Nuclear Operations, Inc. (the licensee) to withdraw its April 25, 2003, application, as supplemented May 21, 2003, June 11, 2003, and June 30, 2005, for a proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. DPR-28 for the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Station (VYNPS), located in Windham County Vermont.

The proposed amendment would have revised the VYNPS Technical Specifications (TSs) related to instrumentation to correct deficiencies in the TSs, reduce operator work-arounds, improve and correct confusing and ambiguous TS requirements, and allow for process enhancements.

The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on August 5, 2003 (68 FR 46241). However, by letter dated September 7, 2005, the licensee withdrew the proposed amendment request.

For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated April 25, 2003, as supplemented on May 21, 2003, June 11, 2003, and June 30, 2005, and the license's letter dated September 7, 2005, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
