Transfer Facility License and Conforming Amendment

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has 
permitted the withdrawal of the August 18, 1997 application for consent 
to transfer Facility License No. TR-2 for the Westinghouse Test 
Reactor, located at the Westinghouse Waltz Mill site in Westmoreland 
County, Pennsylvania, and application for a conforming license 
amendment; submitted by Westinghouse Electric Corporation (CBS 
    The proposed action would have approved the transfer of License No. 
TR-2 from the Westinghouse Electric Corporation to a new corporation 
that would have taken the name Westinghouse Electric Corporation, but 
would not have included in its lines of business certain media 
operations. The proposed action would have also amended the license to 
reflect the proposed transfer of the license.
    The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of 
Approval of Transfer of License and Issuance of a Conforming Amendment 
to Facility License, Proposed No Significant Hazards Consideration 
Determination, and Opportunity for Hearing published in the Federal 
Register on September 26, 1997 (62 FR 50628). An Environmental 
Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact was published in the 
Federal Register on October 1, 1997 (62 FR 51493). However, by letter 
dated December 18, 1997, the licensee withdrew the August 18, 1997 
    The licensee withdrew the application because its plan to 
reorganize and create a new corporation changed.
    For further details with respect to this action, see the 
application for amendment dated August 18, 1997, and the letter from 
licensee dated December 18, 1997, which withdrew the application. The 
above documents are available for public inspection at the Commission's 
Public Document Room, the Gelman Building, 2120 L Street, NW., 
Washington, DC.
