Statement of Senator Cathy Osten on House Passage of the ‘Millstone Bill’

State Senator Cathy Osten (D-Sprague) today welcomed final passage in the House of Representatives of Senate Bill 1501, the so-called “Millstone bill” or “Dominion bill” which permits state regulators to consider allowing Dominion Energy’s Millstone nuclear power plant in Waterford to sell its power on the energy market at the same rates as other carbon-free sources of electricity, such has solar, wind, and hydro power.

“Today’s vote in the House, following our September 15 vote in the Senate, is a win for eastern Connecticut that will protects jobs and solidify the local economy. These are good-paying, career-level jobs at Dominion that keep people in Connecticut and that we should be protecting and growing,” Sen. Osten said.

The bill now heads to Governor Malloy for his consideration.
