AGENCY:

ACTION:

Proposed rule: Extension of comment period.

SUMMARY:

On June 13, 2006, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published for public comment a proposal to change the basis for the national source tracking rule from the NRC's authority to promote the common defense and security to protection of the public health and safety. The comment period for this proposed rule was to have expired on July 3, 2006. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton and Representative Edward Markey requested an extension to the comment period. The NRC has decided to extend the comment period for an additional 25 days.
