The Vermont Public Service Board says it will set its own pace in deciding whether the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant gets a state permit to operate for another 20 years.
A federal judge in January issued an order blocking an effort by Vermont lawmakers to close the plant down, and sent the issue back to the Public Service Board. The owner of the plant first said the board had all the information it needed to go ahead and issue a new permit.
Then, this week, Entergy Corp. asked the federal judge to make changes to his January decision and for the board to wait.
The board says its review is continuing.
