Meetings of the citizens panel have also addressed the status of pending sale of Vermont Yankee to NorthStar Group Services Inc., which has proposed buying and dismantling the plant, rather than wait for Vermont Yankee owners to do the job after a decades-long cooling off period.

The public can submit comments to the panel in person or by emailing   

Remote Access will be available for the meeting by contacting Tony Leshinskie, Vermont state nuclear engineer, at or through by Wednesday at 5 p.m.
