Appeals Court Sides With Vermont Yankee

A federal appeals court has sided with Entergy in a legal battle over the future of Vermont Yankee.  The court ruled the Vermont legislature does not have the authority to shut down the nuclear power plant.  That authority lies solely with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.  Justice Susan Carney wrote that her agreement with the opinion was reluctant, but the court must honor the provisions of the federal Atomic Energy Act.  The controversial plant is located just north of the Massachusetts border on the Connecticut River.
