NRC FOIA documents regarding Davis-Besse shield building cracking

On January 26, 2012, Beyond Nuclear filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) after NRC Region 3 Acting Administrator, Cynthia Pedersen, refused to provide documents about her decision to approve the rushed re-start at Davis-Besse, despite "unique" cracking of its concrete containment shield building.

In mid-June, 2012, NRC at long last began to respond to the FOIA request (the response is still not complete). Following are links to NRC's FOIA response, APPENDIX B: (PREVIOUSLY UN-RELEASED) RECORDS BEING RELEASED IN THEIR ENTIRETY documents, cited in Beyond Nuclear and environmental coalition allies' 5th supplement to its cracked concrete containment contention, in opposition to Davis-Besse's 20 year license extension, before NRC's Atomic Safety (sic) and Licensing Board (ASLB):
