(These statements are NOT direct quotes. All statements are paraphrased.)
Phil Green of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) welcomed meeting attendees and summarized the meeting agenda:
We have not been back since the July 2004 meeting because the contract had to be competitively bid. A new contract was awarded in September 2004, but no one had access to the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) site until February 2005. We have now been allowed back into the site, so we are here to tell you what our progress has been since February.
