[Docket Nos. 50-282 and 50-306; NRC-2009-0146]

Northern States Power Company--Minnesota; Notice of Withdrawal of 
Application for Amendment to Facility Operating License

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, the Commission) has 
granted the request of Northern States Power Company--Minnesota (the 
licensee) to withdraw its July 11, 2008 application for proposed 
amendment to Facility Operating License Nos. DPR-42 and DPR-60 for the 
Prairie Island Nuclear Generating Plant, Units 1 and 2, located in 
Goodhue County, Minnesota.
    The proposed amendment would have established Conditions, Required 
Actions, and Completion Times in the Technical Specifications (TSs) for 
the condition where one steam supply to the turbine-driven auxiliary 
feedwater (AFW) pump is inoperable concurrent with an inoperable motor-
driven AFW train, using the Consolidated Line Item Improvement Process 
for TS Task Force Traveler (TSTF) 412, Revision 3.
    The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of 
Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on October 21, 
2008 (73 FR 62568). However, by letter dated March 11, 2009, the 
licensee withdrew the proposed change.
    For further details with respect to this action, see the 
application for amendment dated July 11, 2008, and the licensee's 
letter dated March 11, 2009, which withdrew the application for license 
amendment. Documents may be examined, and/or copied for a fee, at the
