State of Vermont vs. Entergy on Vermont Yankee

About This Video

CNN’s Amber Lyon cuts to the heart of states’ rights issues in her expose on Entergy’s use of legal force to prevent Vermont’s citizens from shutting down the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Plant. The Vermont Yankee (VY) nuclear plant has challenged Vermonters with its shoddy maintenance practices and lack of honesty to state legislators and regulators. During the past several years, VY has faced collapsed cooling towers, a transformer fire, and ongoing leaks of radioactivity from its aging underground pipes.
