The New York State Supreme Court has rejected motions to dismiss a lawsuit against the Public Service Commission that challenges subsidies for upstate nuclear plants.

An environmental group and organic farm in the Hudson Valley have filed a lawsuit against the New York state Public Service Commission. The two groups oppose state subsidies of upstate nuclear power plants. 

Letters have gone back and forth between seven state lawmakers and the chair of the New York State Public Service Commission. At issue is what the lawmakers say is an unfair statewide electric rate increase to subsidize upstate nuclear power plants.
