SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC 
or Commission) has issued Amendment 4 to Materials License SNM-2508 
held by the Department of Energy (DOE) for the receipt, possession, 
transfer, and storage of spent fuel of the Three Mile Island Unit 2 
(TMI-2) core debris in an Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation 
(ISFSI), located in Butte County, Idaho. The amendment is effective as 
of the date of issuance.
    By application dated January 31, 2005, as supplemented, DOE 
submitted a request to the NRC, in accordance with Title 10 of the Code 
of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 72.56, ``Application for amendment of 
license,'' to amend the license for the TMI-2 ISFSI to revise the 
technical specification corrective actions if the 5 year leak test on 
the dry shielded canisters (DSC) fails.
    This amendment complies with the requirements of the Atomic Energy 
Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission's rules and 
regulations. The Commission has made appropriate findings as required 
by the Act and the Commission's rules and regulations in 10 CFR Chapter 
I, which are set forth in the license amendment.
    In accordance with 10 CFR 72.46(b)(2), a determination has been 
made that the amendment does not present a genuine issue as to whether 
public health and safety will be significantly affected. Therefore, the 
publication of a notice of proposed action and an opportunity for 
hearing or a notice of hearing is not warranted. Notice is hereby given 
of the right of interested persons to request a hearing on whether the 
action should be rescinded or modified.
    The NRC staff has determined that the proposed action will not have 
a significant impact on the environment. For this action, an 
Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact was 
prepared and published in the Federal Register (70 FR 37124, June 28, 
    The request for amendment was docketed under 10 CFR Part 72, Docket 
72-20. For further details with respect to this action, see the 
amendment request dated January 31, 2005, and June 9, 2005, supplement.
