While States, local governments, or Indian Tribes participating as described above may take any position they wish, or no position at all, with respect to the AES application or the staff’s associated environmental review, they should be cognizant that, due to the inherently adversarial nature of such proceedings, many of the procedures and rights applicable to the NRC’s contested hearing process generally are not available with respect to this uncontested hearing. Participation in the NRC’s contested hearing process is governed by 10 CFR 2.309 (for persons or entities, including States, local governments, or Indian Tribes, seeking to file contentions of their own) and 10 CFR 2.315(c) (for interested States, local governments, and Indian Tribes seeking to participate with respect to contentions filed by others). Participation in this uncontested hearing does not affect the right of a State, local governmental entity, or Indian Tribe to participate in any separate contested hearing process that might be requested relative to this proceeding. Additionally, States, local governmental bodies, and Indian Tribes should be aware that, in accord with 10 CFR 2.315(a), the Board is currently accepting written limited appearance statements regarding this proceeding, and anticipates conducting one or more oral limited appearance sessions in conjunction with the planned summer 2011 evidentiary hearing sessions.
