Operations Meeting update, Mark Beno

Murray Gibson visited DOE last week and came back very optimistic about the budget for the remainder of FY07. If the official budget comes with the numbers expected we will not have to curtail operations in the 2007-2 run cycle. We will let you know when the schedule reflecting these changes is posted but in the mean time please assume that the yellow sections on the currently posted schedule will be run time.
