During what at times was a contentious town hall meeting held by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in San Juan Capistrano’s Community Center on Tuesday, Aug. 20, Scott Morris listens to an audience member accuse him of dodging questions. To the left of Morris, the administrator for the federal agency’s Region IV office, which encompasses much of the western U.S., is Linda Howell, the acting director for the NRC’s Division of Nuclear Materials Safety.
