Re: "The Subcommittee will discuss the staff's programs for risk- based analysis of reactor operating experience..."

IMHO, "discuss" implies collaboration with all in attendance, which at this late date is impossible. Perhaps they meant "disclose"?

***Anyone attending, Please ask about public warning in the event of an incident. Virginia Power refused to disclose requested info to me re: siren alert system in my neighborhood. I asked the power source, back-up, activation process of this system, as well as contingency plans.
