determined in these decisions shall, in accordance with the provisions of the foregoing statutes, constitute the minimum wages payable on Federal and federally assisted construction projects to laborers and mechanics of the specified classes engaged on contract work of the character and in the localities described therein. Good cause is hereby found for not utilizing notice and public comment procedure thereon prior to the issuance of these determinations as prescribed in 5 U.S.C. 553 and not providing for delay in the effective date as prescribed in that section, because the necessity to issue current construction industry wage determinations frequently and in large volume causes procedures to be impractical and contrary to the public interest. General wage determination decisions, and modifications and superseded decisions thereto, contain on expiration dates and are effective from their date of notice in the Federal Register, or on the date written notice is received by the agency, whichever is earlier. These decisions are to be used in accordance with the provisions of 29 CFR part 1 and 5. Accordingly, the applicable decision, together with any modifications issued, must be made a part of every contract for performance of the described work within the geographic area indicated as required by an applicable Federal prevailing wage law and 29 CFR part 5. The wage rates and fringe benefits, notice of which is published herein, and which are contained in the Government Printing Office (GPO) document entitled ‘‘General Wage Determinations Issued Under The Davis-Bacon And Related Acts,’’ shall be the minimum paid by contractors and subcontractors to laborers and mechanics. Any person, organization, or governmental agency having an interest in the rates determined as prevailing is encouraged to submit wage rate and fringe benefit information for consideration by the Department.

NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION
[Docket No. 50–302]

Florida Power Corporation, Crystal River Unit 3; Notice of Consideration of Approval of Application Regarding Proposed Acquisition by CP&L Holdings, Inc. of Florida Progress Corporation and Opportunity for a Hearing The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) is considering the issuance of an order under Title 10, Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), Section 50.80, approving the indirect transfer of Facility Operating License No. DPR–72 for Crystal River Unit 3 (CR–3), to the extent currently held by Florida Power Corporation (FPC). The indirect transfer would be to a proposed new holding company, Carolina Power and Light (CP&L) Holdings, Inc. (Holdings). According to an application for approval filed by FPC dated January 31, 2000, FPC is requesting the consent of the Commission to the indirect transfer of the CR–3 operating license that will occur under a proposed share exchange transaction between Florida Progress Corporation (Progress) and Holdings. Holdings is being formed by CP&L as part of an internal CP&L reorganization. Upon consummating the share exchange transaction, where Holdings will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Progress, Progress will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Holdings. FPC, which owns a 91.7806 percent interest in CR–3, and which will remain a wholly owned subsidiary of Progress, will become an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Holdings upon completion of the transaction. FPC will retain its existing ownership interest in CR–3, continue to hold the CR–3 operating license, and remain the licensed operator of CR–3 after the share exchange transaction. No direct transfer of the license will occur. No physical changes to the facility or operational changes are being proposed in the application. Pursuant to 10 CFR 50.80, no license, or any right thereunder, shall be transferred, directly or indirectly, through transfer of control of the
