HARTFORD – The question of whether the state government will regulate commercial wind turbines now moves to the House and Senate to decide.
The Appropriations Committee voted 40-10 Tuesday to approve legislation that requires the Connecticut Siting Council to draft regulations for locating power-generating wind turbines.
The legislature’s budget-writing committee was the bill’s last stop before heading to the House and Senate for final consideration, said Rep. Vickie O. Nardello, D-Prospect, a leading supporter of the legislation.
The final committee approval comes approximately two weeks before the siting council is expected to act on an application to erect two wind turbines in Prospect.
