As the legal uncertainty
surrounding the Vermont Yankee plant continues, an anti-nuclear group wants
utility regulators to take a time out in order to let the state Supreme Court
resolve some of the issues.
House Speaker Shap Smith discusses the top issues facing the Legislature, VPR’s John Dillon provides analysis on
this week’s court cases involving the continued operation of Vermont Yankee and we hear from the Norwich University Regimental Band.
After a hearing in New York City on Monday, the company that owns Vermont Yankee and its opponents were back in
court on Wednesday in a continuing legal face-off over the future of the
state’s only nuclear plant.
State regulators are

approval to run the plant until 2032. But it still needs a state permit, called
a certificate of public good.
