Nothing has happened regarding Vermont Yankee in recent weeks to improve the nuclear power plant’s chances of winning legislators’ support for its continued operation after March 2012.
If anything, more lawmakers are becoming more comfortable with the idea of voting against letting the Public Service Board decide on continued operation.
“If the vote was today, I’d vote against it,” Rep. Joe Krawczyk, R-Bennington, vice chairman of the House Natural Resources & Energy Committee, said Thursday.
Don’t be surprised if there is a vote by the end of the month, before the Legislature breaks for Town Meeting.
