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 Virginia based Dominion Resources, Inc. - following its discussion and vote in committee:

“This is a bad bill that will raise rates for Connecticut consumers and businesses, who are already struggling to get by in a state that has some of the highest utility bills in the country. Dominion is a highly profitable company that does not need a corporate handout and has no intentions of closing Millstone. Now more than ever, we need legislators to say enough is enough and stop the Millstone payout.”
