This afternoon, Undersecretary of Installation and Environment Dr. Dorothy Robyn spoke about the current status of the draft environmental impact statement on behalf of the Department of Defense.  "We put out an early release. It was a little risky because it wasn't at a stage where it wasn't ready for primetime," she said.

Dr. Robyn said, "I think the draft EIS will look different from the early release draft, I suspect it will incorporate a lot of comments, but I cant tell you what its going to look like.

She adds the navy is currently meeting in Hawaii to discuss last-minute changes being made to the EIS, which is said to be on time and ready for public comment by November 20.
