Vermont utility regulators have determined they must start over in their review of whether the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant should get a new state permit for continued operation.
The Public Service Board had been trying to decide whether it should revive a three-year-old review that had been stalled when lawmakers intervened in 2010 and blocked the board from issuing a decision on a new permit for Vermont Yankee.
Now, a federal judge has ruled that the Legislature overstepped its bounds and has put the matter back in front of the board. The board issued an order late Thursday saying that, rather than pick up where it left off, it would start anew.
It said the old record of the case was stale and tainted by misstatements by Vermont Yankee executives.
