ACTION:

Proposed rule; reopening of comment period.

SUMMARY:

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is reopening the public comment period for the proposed rule that was published on July 10, 2010. The proposed rule would amend the NRC's regulations by requiring research and test reactor licensees to obtain a fingerprint-based criminal history records check before granting any individual unescorted access to their facilities. The comment period for this proposed rule, which closed on October 4, 2010, is reopened and will remain open until January 31, 2011.

DATES:

The comment period for the proposed rule published July 10, 2010 (75 FR 42000), has been reopened and now closes on January 31, 2011. Comments received after this date will be considered if it is practical to do so, but the NRC is able to assure consideration only for comments received on or before this date.
