The NRC has granted the request of Exelon (the licensee) to withdraw its August 10, 2018, application (ADAMS Accession No. ML18226A097), as supplemented by letter dated December 21, 2018 (ADAMS Accession No. ML18355A699) for proposed amendments to Facility Operating License Nos. NPF-37 and NPF-66, issued to Exelon for operation of the Byron Station, Unit Nos. 1 and 2, located in Ogle County, Illinois.
