Massachusetts lawmakers this week held a hearing on the safety of nuclear power plants in and around the state. They heard testimony from the industry, from regulators and activists, some who live close to Vermont Yankee. The NRC's recent decision to extend Vermont Yankee's operating license to 2032 is not welcome news for some, including VT lawmakers. John Dillon from Vermont Public Radio has been reporting on Vermont Yankee since the 1980s. He spoke with WFCR's Bob Paquette about the plant's fate.
