Hodes: We Need Real Oversight Over Vermont Yankee

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Today, Paul Hodes made the following statement on recent developments surrounding the Tritium leak at Vermont Yankee, including the appointment of a former Entergy employee to oversee safety at the plant:

"What we know for certain is that Entergy has admitted two different radioactive leaks at Vermont Yankee in the past few years and hasn't been fully open about the investigation into either," said Hodes. "Now we are learning that the person who's been tapped by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to oversee the safety of this leaky, over-the-hill nuclear power plant is a former employee of its parent company. Families on both sides of the Connecticut River are justifiably skeptical of both of these purported safety developments, and I will continue to press federal regulators to step up and enforce some real oversight."
