Vermont Yankee should save all of the money they are spending on advertising to help pay for cleanup of the site after it is closed. Of course that won't happen, and Vermonters will be left paying for the cleanup--Thanks to Governor Douglas' refusal to pass a law mandating that the owners of Vermont Yankee set aside cleanup funds.

Following your logic on DOuglas refusal to pass the law, then I wonder why the Legislature did not overide Douglas, they could have or did they and I missed it? Interesting.
