    I do believe I may have taken this picture when I was the public affairs officer. In RIV. I further think I see Chairman Ken Carr, but don’t recognize anyone else.

    I looked it up. I found that those two pictured may have been Lando Zech & Ken Carr.
    Might create some interesting discussions if you asked which past NRC Chairman was the most outspoken when it came to the NRC strictly enforcing all its regulations. My vote goes to Shirley Jackson, Chair ’95-99.

      Chairman Ken Carr is correct. He is second from the right. But who is the fellow on the far right?

        I think the fellow on the far right is the current NRC Chairman, Stephen Burns.

        You are correct. Our current Chairman Stephen Burns was once executive assistant to former Chairman Kenneth Carr and accompanied him on this tour of Comanche Peak.
