Start Preamble

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Exelon Generation Company, LLC (the licensee) to withdraw its December 21, 2007, application for proposed amendment to Renewed Facility Operating License Nos. DPR-29 and DPR-30 for the Quad Cities Nuclear Power Station, Units 1 and 2, located in Rock Island County, Illinois.

The proposed amendment would have revised the Technical Specifications Surveillance Requirements to establish an acceptance criterion to verify that total battery connector resistances for the 125 and 250 volt direct current batteries are within pre-established limits that ensure the batteries can perform their design function.

The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on February 26, 2008 (73 FR 10298) and December 30, 2008 (73 FR 79932). However, by letter dated June 25, 2009, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.Start Printed Page 33480
