T8  Recent Developments in Administrative Law: Public Access, Procedural Transparency and Challenges to Entry in Adjudicatory Hearings Before the NRC

The session will address legal issues affecting the right to a hearing by interested parties including industry, state and local governments, Native American tribes, and members of the public in matters before the NRC concerning new, operating and decommissioned reactors and materials licensees. The legal requirements will be examined from the perspective of various participants in the licensing process, including the States, license applicants, and those (such as Native American tribes, public interest organizations, and members of the public) who may oppose or have concerns about a proposed reactor or materials license.
