[Docket No. 50-259; NRC-2009-0490]

Tennessee Valley Authority; Notice of Withdrawal of Application 
for Amendment to Facility Operating License

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted 
the request of Tennessee Valley Authority (the licensee) to withdraw 
its application dated July 18, 2008, as supplemented by letter dated 
December 5, 2008, for proposed amendment to Renewed Facility Operating 
License No. DPR-33 for the Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant, Unit 1, located 
in Limestone County, Alabama.
    The proposed amendment would have revised the Technical 
Specifications (TS) to lower the numeric values of safety limit minimum 
critical power ratio (SLMCPR) in TS Section for single and two 
reactor recirculation loop operation to incorporate the results of the 
Unit 1 Cycle 8 SLMCPR analysis.
    The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of 
Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on November 18, 
2008 (73 FR 68456). However, by letter dated October 23, 2009, the 
licensee withdrew the proposed change.
    For further details with respect to this action, see the 
application for amendment dated July 18, 2008, as supplemented by 
letter dated December 5, 2008, and the licensee's letter dated October 
23, 2009, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
