Gov. Peter Shumlin Issued the Following Statement Following Today's Ruling on the Entergy Lawsuit

"I am very disappointed in todayís ruling from the federal court. Entergy has not been a trustworthy partner with the state of Vermont. Vermont Yankee needed legislative approval 40 years ago. The plant received approval to operate until March, 2012. I continue to believe that it is in Vermont's best interest to retire the plant. I will await the Attorney Generalís review of the decision to comment further on whether the state will appeal."
