Nuclear Regulatory Commission's Proposed changes to measure human exposure to radiation

Please find the attached NTAA Policy Response Kit for your Tribe’s use in submitting comments to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s (NRC) proposed changes to the Linear No-Threshold Model and Standards for Protection against Radiation (Docket ID NRC-2015-0057). Comments are due to NRC by Thursday November 19th.

The Policy Response Kit contains a NTAA comment letter, a template letter your Tribe can use to edit for submission based upon NTAA’s comment letter. There is also a NRC background fact sheet on the biological effect of radiation exposure.

The NTAA’s Executive Committee produced this Policy Response Kit at the request of several NTAA member Tribes concerned with how the federal government wants to change the way to measure the health impacts from exposure to radiation.
