Nuclear Regulatory Commission.


Proposed generic communication; Reopening of comment period.


The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is reopening the public comment period for the proposed regulatory issue summary (RIS) that was published on November 26, 2010 (75 FR 72737). The purpose of the RIS is to clarify for licensees and external stakeholders the information that they should use and present to the NRC in the Decommissioning Funding Status reports to ensure that the NRC staff, licensees, and stakeholders are using the same, correct figures and to prevent potential issues resulting from shortfalls in the licensee's decommissioning fund. The comment period for this RIS, which closed on December 27, 2010, is reopened and will remain open until March 5, 2011.


The comment period has been reopened and now closes on March 5, 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.


Please include Docket ID NRC-2010-0366 in the subject line of your comments. Comments submitted in writing or in electronic form will be posted on the NRC Web site and on the Federal rulemaking Web site, Because your comments will not be edited to remove any identifying or contact information, the NRC cautions you against including any information in your submission that you do not want to be publicly disclosed.
