UPDATE: "(Two) public meetings [next week in San Luis Obispo (Monday, 10.7) and Carlsbad (Wednesday, 10.9)] have fallen victim to the federal shutdown. The meetings were meant to present the findings and receive public comments on NRC's proposed rules and environmental study on the long-term storage of spent nuclear fuel."
UPDATE 2: Due to the lack of an appropriation and the government shutdown, the Waste Confidence Directorate regrets to inform you that we are postponing our two public meetings scheduled for next week:  Tuesday, October 15, in Perrysburg, Ohio; and Thursday, October 17, in Minnetonka, Minnesota.  

The first and last public comment meetings, on October 1st and November 14th, will be held at NRC HQ in Rockville, MD. At these two public comment meetings only, members of the public can take part remotely, online via webcast and/or by telephone conference, and provide oral comments that way. (All other public comment meetings around the country must be attended in person only, in order to submit public comments.)
NRC has requested that participants in the public comment meetings register ahead of time. You can pre-register by phone at (301) 287-9392, or by filling out the webform at:
