As announced in the April 3, 2006 Notice of Joint Meeting, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) will hold a joint meeting on April 24, 2006, in Room 2C, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426. The meeting is expected to begin at 2 p.m. (EDT) and conclude at 4 p.m. All interested persons are invited to attend. Purpose of Joint Meeting In accordance with the April 3 Notice, the purpose of the joint meeting is to continue the dialog between the two agencies in furtherance of the goals set forth in the Memorandum of Agreement, signed on September 1, 2004, especially in light of the concurrent matters involving offsite power,2 and to explore the most effective role of each agency in addressing grid reliability issues and, thereby, to ensure an integrated approach in accomplishing their respective missions. 1 The Commission does not anticipate any decisions being made in either of these rulemaking dockets at this meeting; however, as both rulemakings may be discussed, the Commission is noticing both dockets to ensure no violation of the Government in the Sunshine Act requirements occurs. 2 On February 1, 2006, the NRC issued Generic Letter 2006–002, Grid Reliability and the Impact on Plant Risk and the Operability of Offsite Power, OMB No. 3150–0011.
