Allen/all –
I will undoubtedly need your help in crafting the staff’s messages for the upcoming Commission meeting on the Japanese event. If there is a public part of this meeting, and there probably will be, it will be a good opportunity for us to get out the message that we have requirements in place for severe accident management, 50.63 SBO, flooding, 50.54hh(2), Mark I containment improvements, etc. Please brainstorm how we can make that part of our message to the Commission.


A lot of what I think we need to do with our licensees, at least in the near term, is to verify what they are already required to do. It might make a good message for the public.
