AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Notice of Issuance of Amendment to Materials License SNM-2509.


Effective Date: December 22, 2005.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Christopher M. Regan, Senior Project 
Manager, Spent Fuel Project Office, Office of Nuclear Material Safety 
and Safeguards, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC 
or the Commission) has issued Amendment 5 to Materials License No. SNM-
2509 held by Portland General Electric Company (PGE) to delete from 
Technical Specification (TS) section 5.5.2, ``Radioactive Effluent 
Control Program,'' the sentence from TS 5.5.2.b. that reads, ``The 
Trojan ISFSI may be included in the environmental monitoring program 
for the Trojan Nuclear Plant,'' and TS 5.5.2.c. in its entirety, which 
requires an annual report to be submitted pursuant to 10 CFR 
72.44(d)(3). Approval of these changes to the TS in conjunction with an 
exemption request approved on November 9, 2005, relieves PGE from the 
requirement to submit an annual radioactive effluent report for the 
Trojan Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI), located in 
Columbia County, Oregon.
    This amendment complies with the standards and 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. This 
amendment satisfied the criteria specified in 10 CFR 51.22(c)(10)(ii) 
and 10 CFR 51.22(c)(11) for a categorical exclusion from the 
requirements to perform an environmental assessment or to prepare an 
environmental impact statement.
    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action should be rescinded or modified.

Further Information

    The NRC has prepared a Safety Evaluation Report (SER) that 
documents the information that was reviewed and NRC's conclusion. In 
accordance with 10 CFR 2.390 of NRC's ``Rules of Practice,'' final NRC 
records and documents regarding this proposed action, including the 
amendment request dated July 6, 2005, and the SER are publically 
available in the records component of NRC's Agencywide Documents Access 
and Management System (ADAMS). These documents may be inspected at 
NRC's Public Electronic Reading Room at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html. These documents may also be viewed electronically on the 
public computers located at the NRC's Public Document Room (PDR), 
O1F21, One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 
20852. The PDR reproduction contractor will copy documents for a fee.

accessing the documents located in ADAMS, should contact the NRC PDR 
Reference staff by telephone at 1-800-397-4209 or (301) 415-4737, or by
