On Wednesday, the 2nd US Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court decision invalidating two Vermont laws pertaining to state oversight of the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Plant.

Governor Shumlin, who is on vacation,  issued a statement that says while Wednesday's decision from the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York blocks the Legislature's efforts to close the plant it does not halt review of the Vernon reactor's operations by the state Public Service Board.
Vermont Public Service Department Deputy Commissioner Darren Springer says it is a key element in the decision.
