STOP THE MILLSTONE PAYOUT STATEMENT ON S.B. 778: "WE APPLAUD THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY FOR DECIDING NOT TO ADOPT S.B. 106 OR ITS SUCCESSOR, S.B. 778"
Hartford, CT -- Matt Fossen, spokesman for the Stop the Millstone Payout coalition, released the following statement today after the Connecticut General Assembly adjourned at midnight:
“As we saw throughout this entire session, legislators and the public alike gave thoughtful consideration to whether the relief sought by Millstone was necessary. We are thankful to all the ratepayers, legislators, and organizations who contributed to the months’ long debate on this important issue, and applaud the General Assembly for deciding not to adopt S.B. 106 or its successor, S.B. 778. While no one questions the value of Millstone to the state, proponents of the bill failed to demonstrate that special financial treatment for Millstone was necessary to its continued economic viability at this time.”
