    October 28,2013


    VERNON ó Two House committees are planning a special trip to the stateís southeast corner to hear about the impact of the impending closing of the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant.

    The lawmakers travel to Vernon Elementary School Monday to hear from business and other local leaders from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m., and from the general public from 5 to 7 p.m.

    House Speaker Shap Smith said he hopes lawmakers will gather information that will help them minimize the impact of the plantís closing, which is scheduled late next year. Vermont Yankee employs more than 600 people.

    Members of the Commerce and Economic Development and Natural Resources and Energy Committees of the Vermont House of Representatives will participate in the events.
