§ 2.405 Initial decisions in consolidated hearings.
At the conclusion of a hearing held
under this subpart, the presiding officer
will render a partial initial decision on
the common design. The partial initial
decision on the common design may be
appealed under § 2.341. If the
proceedings have also been
consolidated with respect to matters
other than the common design under § 2.317(b), the presiding officer may
issue a consolidated partial initial
decision for those proceedings. No
construction permit, full-power
operating license, or combined license under part 52 of this chapter will be issued until an initial decision has been
issued on all phases of the hearing and all issues under the Act and the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 appropriate to the proceeding have been resolved.
