A discussion of spent nuclear fuel transportation safety

Representatives of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission will conduct a meeting to seek public input into its proposed update of a 1987 study that examined the robustness of spent nuclear fuel transportation casks in accidents. The agency would like the public to comment on those aspects of transportation safety they believe are most important.

The daytime session in Henderson will be held in "roundtable style with invited participants from a variety of interested groups discussing issues of importance to them. During the evening seminar in Henderson, the meeting will be held in a "town hall" format, to hear views from interested members of the public.

In Pahrump, the seminar will also adopt a "town hall" format.

All meetings are open to the public.
