NRC Updates Meeting Information for Next Week

Hurricane Irene has affected one NRC-related meeting for certain, and the staff has provided additional details for another meeting.

Due to the expected effects of Hurricane Irene, the National Academy of Sciences has canceled its Aug. 29 meeting on the NRC-sponsored cancer risk study. The NAS will reschedule the meeting and provide updates on its website.

The NRC staff have updated the notice for a meeting scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 31, where stakeholders and the public will comment on a staff proposal to act “without unnecessary delay” on several Japan Task Force recommendations. The new schedule has a revised agenda and a notice for the opportunity for written comments.

According to the updated notice, members of the public may submit written comments on the Near Term Task Force recommendations 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, and 9 through Friday, Sept. 2, 2011. Comments can be submitted at http://www.regulations.gov/under docket ID NRC-2011-0196.

Stay tuned for other public meetings or Commission meetings that may be affected by weather events.
