I. Introduction

    Pursuant to Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 
2.106, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is providing notice of 
the issuance of Combined Licenses (COL), NPF-93 and NPF-94, to South 
Carolina Electric and Gas (SCE&G) and South Carolina Public Service 
Authority (Santee Cooper). The (NRC) finds that the applicable 
standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as 
amended, and the Commission's regulations have been met. The NRC finds 
that any required notifications to other agencies or bodies have been 
duly made and that there is reasonable assurance that the facility will 
be constructed and will operate in conformity with the license, the 
provisions of the Act, and the Commission regulations. Furthermore, the 
NRC finds that the licensees are technically and financially qualified 
to engage in the activities authorized, and that issuance of the 
licenses will not be inimical to the common defense and security or to 
the health and safety of the public.
    Accordingly, the COLs were issued on March 30, 2012, and are 
effective immediately.

II. Further Information

    The NRC has prepared a Final Safety Evaluation Report (FSER) and 
Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) that document the 
information reviewed and NRC's conclusion. The Commission has also 
issued its Memorandum and Order documenting its final decision on the 
uncontested hearing held on October 12-13, 2011, which serves as the 
Record of Decision in this proceeding. In accordance with 10 CFR 2.390 
of the NRC's ``Rules of Practice,'' details with respect to this 
action, including the FSER and accompanying documentation included in 
the combined license package, as well as the Commission's hearing 
decision, are available online in the NRC Library at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html. From this site, persons can access
