Description: Abstract: In the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's Seabrook Opinion of January 6, 1978, the Commission directed that an internal study be made of: (1) the effect which would be achieved by relaxation of NRC's stay standards so that site-related issues in potentially troublesome nuclear power plant licensing proceedings could be taken up before utilities invest large sums of money and sites are irrevocably altered; and (2) ways in which the NRC's appellate administrative procedures could assure earlier resolution of all the issues arising out of nuclear power plant licensing and cut relitigation and piecemeal review to a minimum. In December of 1978, the Commission chose Gary Milhollin, a faculty member at the University of Wisconsin Law School to chair a study group composed of nine other members. These members were chosen by the heads of various offices within the Commission. This report describes the Committee's work, summarizes the data gathered by the Committee, and recommends action by the Commission.
