Statement on Connecticut S.B. 106

Hartford, CT -- Matt Fossen, spokesman for the Stop the Millstone Payout coalition, released the following statement today on S.B. 106, a bill pertaining to the Millstone nuclear power plant, owned and operated by Dominion Resources, Inc. The bill's language was announced to the public today.

"This bill is bad for residents and bad for business," said Fossen. "It would provide Millstone a huge corporate payout -- funded by raising utility bills for businesses and residents.
