DHHS Hearing on Control of Radiation October 26

Lincoln – The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services will hold a public hearing October 26 to receive comments on proposed changes to regulations related to the control of radiation.  These changes are found in Nebraska Administrative Code Title 180, Chapters 1, 3, 13, and 24.
