Bill would change wind project review  

Credit:  By Bob Kinzel, Produced by Patti Daniels | Vermont Public Radio | 03/15/2013 | www.vpr.net ~~

The debate over putting a moratorium on wind energy projects in Vermont and taken a turn. Now a bill in the Statehouse would instead give towns a greater say in whether wind projects could be built within the town’s lines by subjecting projects to Act 250 criteria. We discuss who should decide where wind energy projects are built in Vermont with state Sen. Joe Benning, who supports a moratorium, and Gabrielle Stebbins of Renewable Energy Vermont who argues for a statewide approach to wind projects.

Also in the program, U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy is in a position of influence over the nation a debate over gun laws, and the Senate Judiciary Committee that he chairs hears testimony on the issue. Leahy discusses the four gun bills his committee is working on.
