Talks Continue

This evening, Dec. 3 Safe & Green hosts a free educational panel on decommissioning, “Cleaning Up Vt Yankee: 3 Perspectives” from 6:30-8:30pm at SIT in Brattleboro. Yesterday, confidential talks between the state and Entergy continued during an eight hour meeting in Montpelier. Chris Recchia, commissioner of the Department of Public Service, said “It was constructive and productive,” in the Rutland Herald. “Believed to be part of the discussion is the $5.4 million legal bill that Entergy is trying to collect from the state over the federal lawsuit Entergy filed against the state over two laws. Entergy won a decision in U.S. District Court in Brattleboro and in the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals in New York City, but the appeals court struck down the portion of the earlier ruling that allowed Entergy to recoup its legal costs. Recchia said both sides agreed to continue talks.”
