MONTPELIER, Vermont — A nuclear watchdog group is expressing concern that its allies could be cut out of a deal between Entergy and Vermont on the future of the state's lone nuclear plant.
Top state officials and Entergy have been in talks toward an agreement on decommissioning Vermont Yankee after the plant closes late next year. They've asked the Public Service Board to hold off on ruling on decommissioning until those talks are complete next week.
But the New England Coalition is urging the board to cast a wary eye toward any agreement between the state and Entergy.
The group says those talks as of now involve only two of the eight parties that have been involved in board hearings over the future of the Vernon reactor.
