NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION


Extension of Public Comment Period: Louisiana Energy Services 
National Enrichment Facility

AGENCY: United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

ACTION: Extension of public comment period.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The NRC is extending the public comment period for the Draft 
Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the Proposed National 
Enrichment Facility in Lea County, New Mexico (NUREG-1790) that was to 
end on November 6, 2004. The original notice of availability of the 
DEIS appeared in the Federal Register on September 17, 2004 (69 FR 
56104).
    On October 25, 2004, the NRC initiated an additional security 
review of publicly available documents to ensure that potentially 
sensitive information is removed from the ADAMS database accessible 
through the NRC's Web site. Interested members of the public should 
check the NRC's Web pages for updates on the availability of documents 
through the ADAMS system. This extension of the public comment period 
is appropriate to allow members of the public adequate opportunity to 
obtain access to relevant documents in ADAMS in order to comment on the 
DEIS. Therefore, the public comment period is being extended until 
December 18, 2004.
    Members of the public are invited and encouraged to submit comments 
to the Chief, Rules Review and Directives Branch, Mail Stop T6-D59, 
U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001. Please 
note Docket No. 70-3103 when submitting comments. Written comments 
submitted by mail should be postmarked by December 18, 2004, to ensure 
consideration. Comments mailed after that date will be considered to 
the extent practical.
    Comments will also be accepted by e-mail to nrcrep@nrc.gov, or by 
facsimile to 301-415-5397, Attention: Anna Bradford.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For general or technical information 
associated with the license review of the National Enrichment Facility,
