Florida Power & Light Company; Receipt of Request for Action

    Notice is hereby given that by petition dated April 23, 2012, Mr. 
Thomas King (petitioner) has requested that the U.S.

[[Page 55879]]

Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) take action with regard to St. 
Lucie Plant, Units 1 and 2, and Turkey Point Nuclear Generating, Units 
3 and 4. The petitioner requested that the NRC take immediate action to 
shut down or prohibit restart of the St. Lucie Plant, Units 1 and 2, 
and Turkey Point Nuclear Generating, Units 3 and 4, ``until a criminal 
investigation of the AMES Group LLC is complete and everything has been 
verified safe.''
    The request is being treated pursuant to Section 2.206 of Title 10 
of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) of the Commission's 
regulations. The request has been referred to the Director of the 
Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation. As provided by Section 2.206, 
appropriate action will be taken on this petition within a reasonable 
time. The petition review board (PRB) held a teleconference with the 
petitioner on July 9, 2012, during which the petitioner was given the 
opportunity to supplement the original request with additional 
information in advance of the PRB's decision to accept or deny the 
petition. The PRB denied the petitioner's request for immediate action 
because the NRC staff did not have sufficient information to support a 
shut-down or prohibit the restart of the St. Lucie and Turkey Point 
plants. The NRC Region II Office is conducting an examination of the 
petitioner's concerns. The PRB accepted the petition for review but it 
will be held in abeyance pending the outcome of Region II's 
examination. A copy of the petition is available for inspection at the 
Commission's Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint 
North, Public File Area O1 F21, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), 
Rockville, Maryland. Publicly available documents created or received 
at the NRC are accessible electronically through the Agencywide 
Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) in the NRC Library at 
http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html. Persons who do not have 
access to ADAMS or who encounter problems in 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 email to 
[email protected].

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 29th day of August 2012.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
Eric J. Leeds,
Director, Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation.
