[Docket Nos. STN 50-456 and STN 50-457]

Commonwealth Edison Company; Notice of Withdrawal of Application 
for Amendment to Facility Operating Licenses

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted 
the request of Commonwealth Edison Company (the licensee) to withdraw 
its August 15, 1995, application for proposed amendment to Facility 
Operating License Nos. NPF-72 and NPF-77, for the Braidwood Station, 
Unit 1, located in Will County, Illinois.
    The proposed amendment would have modified the facility technical 
specifications to renew the 1.0 volt interim plugging criteria (IPC) 
for the Braidwood, Unit 1, steam generators (SG) in accordance with 
Generic Letter 95-05, ``Voltage-Based Repair Criteria for Westinghouse 
Steam Generators Tubes Affected by Outside Diameter Stress Corrosion 
Cracking,'' dated August 3, 1995. This request was made as a 
contingency in the event that the 3.0 volt IPC which ComEd had 
previously submitted on February 13, 1995, was not approved in order to 
support the startup of Braidwood, Unit 1, from the Cycle 5 refueling 
outage. On November 9, 1995, the NRC issued Amendment No. 69, thereby 
nullifying the August 15, 1995, request. Subsequently, by letter dated 
November 13, 1995, you withdrew the amendment request.
    The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of 
Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on October 5, 
1995, (60 FR 52222). However, by letter dated November 13, 1995, the 
licensee withdrew the proposed change.
    For further details with respect to this action, see the 
application for amendment dated August 15, 1995, and the licensee's 
letter dated November 13, 1995, which withdrew the application for 
license amendment. The above documents are available for public 
inspection at the Commission's Public Document Room, the Gelman 
Building, 2120 L Street, NW., Washington, DC, and at the local public 
document room located at the Wilmington Public Library, 201 S. Kankakee 
Street, Wilmington, Illinois 60481.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 1st day of January 1996.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Ramin R. Assa,
Project Manager, Project Directorate III-2, Division of Reactor 
Projects-III/IV, Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation.
