  1. “Citizens interested in applying for membership on the HAB are not required to have special expertise about the Hanford site.”

    sounds like a scam to get a bunch of “yes men” on the board.

    • You paranoid boy! I think they just want diverse people involved. Could be naive but they want “average joe” to chip in rather than just have pro-nuke or anti-nuke people tossing in their two cents. The reimbursement alone sounds good. Plan to attend the next Seattle town hall discussion.
