Petition for Rulemaking

The NRC will consider the issues raised in PRM–50–100, submitted by the Natural Resources Defense Council, Inc. (NRDC or the petitioner) in the NRC’s rulemaking process. The petitioner requested that the NRC amend its regulations to require each operating and new reactor licensee to improve spent nuclear fuel safety. The NRC determined that the issues raised in the PRM are appropriate for consideration in an ongoing rulemaking on ‘‘Station Blackout Mitigation Strategies.’’ The NRC is not instituting a public comment period at this time.
