Voice your reaction to the Vermont Seante’s vote against a bill that could have allowed the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant to renew its operating license for 20 more years. Also, the Air Guard explains why it wants to be home to a new fleet of F-35s, despite noise concerns.
Entergy Senior Vice President Jay Thayer and House Natural Resources chairman Tony Klein discuss the decommissioning of Vermont Yankee and the efforts to have the plant re-licensed for another 20 years.
The Vermont House has given preliminary approval to

The vote was 95 to 47. Opponents of the bill say it’s unethical and will result
in higher electric rates.
