licenses DPR-70, DPR-75, and NPF-57, for an additional 20 years of 
operation for Salem Nuclear Generating Station (Salem), Units 1 and 2, 
and Hope Creek Generating Station (HCGS). Possible alternatives to the 
proposed action (license renewal) include no action and reasonable 
alternative energy sources.
    Any interested party may submit comments on the draft supplement to 
the GEIS for consideration by the NRC staff. To be considered, comments 
on the draft supplement to the GEIS and the proposed action must be

consideration only for comments received on or before this date.
