The state has no business regulating the nuclear power plant. The NRC has jurisdiction over the reactor. The question from the NSA/Act 189 team was relative to radioactive piping that could affect reliability of the plant...something state lawmakers seem interested in being involved with yet can't seem to be able to balance the state budget. hhmmm seems like the lawmakers priorities are misfocused and getting their nose into the wrong business...not surprising considing how big Shumlin's is.

But it did effect the reliability of the plant with a short shutdown to repair the leak... and the ability to get relicenced?
