The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA 95) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, the Pension and Welfare Benefits Administration is soliciting comments concerning the information collection requests (ICR) incorporated in regulation pertaining to the required content of Summary Plan Descriptions under ERISA, 29 CFR 2520.102–3. A copy of the ICR may be obtained by contacting the office listed in the addressee section of this notice. DATES: Written comments must be submitted to the office shown in the addressee section below on or before December 28, 1999. ADDRESSES: Gerald B.

Current Actions: The Department is not proposing or implementing changes to the existing ICR at this time. Comments received in response to this notice will be incorporated in the submission to OMB for continued clearance of the ICR. Type of Review: Extension of currently approved collections of information. Agency: Pension and Welfare Benefits Administration. Titles: Summary Plan Description Requirements under ERISA (SMM/SPD).

NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION
[IA 99–049]

Randall G. Falvey; Order Prohibiting Involvement in NRC-Licensed Activities I Randall G. Falvey was employed from January 3, 1994 to October 30, 1998, as the training manager for the Wackenhut Corporation, the security contractor of the Wisconsin Public Service Corporation (Licensee). The Licensee holds license No. DPR–43 issued by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or Commission) pursuant to 10 CFR Part 50 on June 16, 1974. The license authorizes the operation of the Kewaunee Nuclear Power Plant (facility) in accordance with the conditions specified therein. The facility is located on the Licensee’s site near Green Bay, Wisconsin. II From December 21, 1998 to June 21, 1999, an investigation of licensed activities was conducted by the NRC Office of Investigations (OI) in response to information provided to NRC Region III by the Licensee on October 14, 1998.

NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION Special Emphasis Panel in Experimental & Integrative Activities; Notice of Meeting In accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act (Pub. L. 92– 463, as amended), the National Science Foundation announces the following meeting:

The Licensee reported that information had been received which indicated the annual test firing of shotguns used by the security force at the Kewaunee Nuclear Power Plant was not performed when due. The Licensee conducted an investigation and determined that Mr. Randall G. Falvey, the training manager for the Wackenhut Corporation, was assigned the responsibility for ensuring that each firearm at this site, including shotguns, was test fired annually. The investigation by the Licensee determined that Mr. Falvey had not ensured that 11 shotguns during 1997 and nine shotguns during 1998 were tested. The investigation by the Licensee also established that Mr. Falvey falsified the records of those tests in order to show that the tests had been conducted. The Licensee also reported that two shotguns which Mr. Falvey had not tested and for which he had falsified test records, failed to properly cycle during the test firing following the identification of this issue. The OI investigation also determined that during the Licensee’s investigation of this matter, Mr. Falvey provided false information about the test firings to the Licensee’s Security Director for the Kewaunee Nuclear Power Plant. In a written statement to the Security Director, Mr. Falvey wrote that he had completed the test firings on the shotguns. However, review of Kewaunee Plant security access records during the licensee’s investigation for May 1997 and May and June 1998, on the dates that Mr. Falvey indicated that the shotguns were tested, showed both that Mr. Falvey had, in some instances, not entered areas where shotguns were stored and, in other instances, that Mr. Falvey had not stayed in an area long enough to retrieve a shotgun for testing and replace it with another. Security personnel were interviewed and none could recall retrieving or firing a shotgun at Mr. Falvey’s request. Furthermore, Mr. Falvey could not provide the name of any individual who may have retrieved or test fired a shotgun at the direction of Mr. Falvey. Other records indicated that none of these firearms were taken to the firing range or cleaned after test firing. Condition No. 2.C.(4) of the NRC operating license for the Kewaunee Nuclear Power Plant requires the Licensee to maintain in effect and fully implement all provisions of the Commission-approved Kewaunee Nuclear Power Plant Security Manual and the Licensee’s Security Implementing Procedure (SIP) 30.02–10, ‘‘Testing, Inspection, and Maintenance of Security Equipment.’’ The annual testing of site-assigned weapons,
