There is a new chair of the Public Service Board (PSB), and the appointment is good news for those concerned about Vermont Yankee. Tony Roisman knows nuclear power regulatory issues, and we need someone of his experience and intellect while the complexities of the sale from Entergy to NorthStar is before the PSB. You can read profiles of him in SevenDays and in VtDigger. Roisman is replacing Jim Volz.
Update: Roisman has recused himself as chair of the PSB from Vermont Yankee cases.
