Make Radiation Visible - National Campaign

National Campaign Launch
in Washington, DC

BEST/MATRR representatives
Garry Morgan and Gretel Johnston
were selected to join a committee
of seven nuclear guardian groups
in December, 2013.

Priscilla Star of Coalition Against Nukes
co-chaired the committee
with Gene Stone 
of Residents Organized for a Safe Environment.

Active committee members were
Dr. Marvin Resnikoff
of Radioactive Waste Management Associates,
Susan Shapiro
of Indian Point Safe Energy Coalition,
Donna Gilmore
of SanOnofreSafety.org,
Tim Judson and Diane D'Arrigo
of Nuclear Information and Resource Service,
as well as our two members.

The committee chose two main topics to present
to policymakers in DC in late January:
High Burnup Fuel Dangers
were presented by Dr. Marvin Resnikoff,
and Make Radiation Visible proposals
were presented by Gretel Johnston.

Group consensus presented a strong showing
of support for both presentations,
which appeared to be well received
in separate meetings with NRC Commission
Chairwoman Allison Macfarlane,
Commissioner William Magwood,
and Commissioner George Apostolakis.

A large conference meeting
with three Radiological Directors
and staff experts at the EPA also went well,
with many probing questions asked
and answered from both sides of the table.

The committee also met with key staffers 
for the U.S. Senate Committee
on Environment and Public Works,
and the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. 
This proved very helpful for understanding the steps
necessary to enact major policy changes,
and for offering research to support our policy suggestions.
