proceeding will be permitted to make an oral statement setting forth 
his or her position on matters of concern relating to this proceeding. 
Although these statements do not constitute testimony or evidence in 
the proceeding, they nonetheless help the Board and/or the parties in 
their consideration of the issues.
    Oral limited appearance statements will be entertained during the 
hours specified above, or such lesser time as might be necessary to 
accommodate the speakers who are present. In this regard, if all 
scheduled and unscheduled speakers present at the session have made a 
presentation, the Licensing Board reserves the right to terminate the 
session before the ending time listed above. During the limited 
appearance session no signs or banners will be permitted in the room.
    In order to allow all interested persons an opportunity to address 
the Board, the time allotted for each statement normally will be no 
more than five (5) minutes, but may be limited, or expanded, depending 
on the number of written requests to make oral statements that are 
submitted in accordance with Section C below, and/or the number of 
persons present at the designated time. At the outset of each 
statement, the speaker should identify

and stating whether they have any affiliation (such as employment, 
consultancy, or membership) with any of the parties (USEC or the NRC).
