The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has prepared a Draft Generic Environmental Impact Statement (DGEIS) as part of the process of replacing its "waste confidence" rule. It hopes to finalize this document and resume licensing during 2014. In the Fall of 2013, the agency will hold 12 public meetings around the country to explain and receive comment on this document.
These meetings are our opportunity to point out the technical shortcomings in this new document, and to call for making the licensing moratorium permanent. You can attend one of the meetings, or submit your comments online, by fax, or via mail.

**Make sure to check the meeting schedule frequently, as it may change due to the government shutdown.

These are the issues of immediate importance we are working on right now.
