Doesn’t look like something open to the public – am I correct?

Hi Rosetta,

Thanks for your time today. We appreciate you identifying someone from the NRC to support the NGA Center’s outreach to states during this busy time.

As we discussed we would like to invite the NRC to join us for two upcoming events — a webinar next week and a conference in early April — to brief governors’ advisors on the Japanese situation and the implications for US plants.

The events are:
1) A webinar with governors’ security and energy advisors. NGA Center staff is planning to host a conference call next week (Tuesday 3/21 or Wednesday 3/22) to provide senior state officials with an update on the Japan situation and to answer questions as to the operations of US plants, including regulations, plant security/safety, and the emergency preparedness efforts at the US nuclear fleet. We would ask that an NRC expert ioin the webinar remotely; the webinar would last for 1 hour.

2) An in-person speaker at a governors’ energy advisors meeting. NGA Center’s Governors’ Energy Advisors Policy Institute on April 4th in Arlington, Virginia. The focus of the April 4th Institute is to provide a ‘Technology 101’ briefing for governors senior energy advisors. We would invite the NRC to attend in-person on April 4th from 1:45pm to 4:15pm.

We would ask for a 10-15 minute presentation on the situation in Japan, the state of nuclear technology and regulations in the US, and the implications for states from the Japanese crisis. Attached is a draft agenda.

Thanks for considering both of these requests.

Sincerely,
Greg Dierkers
