Decisions on moving a bill out of committee
may be taken well after it's hearing date.
Through a variety of methods, PLAC actively undertakes measures to educate the public about the significant risks associated with Pilgrim, as well as
the health, ecological and community advantages of transitioning to truly clean energy.
A bill was passed in the last
legislative session creating a Decommissioning Panel
that will have input into issues
involving the decommissioning of Pilgrim. PLAC
seeks to ensure that strong advocates for nuclear
safety are appointed to the Panel, including a
representative from Cape Cod, and will work to keep the public informed of this process.
Working with Massachusetts
At this point in the legislative
session, we expect several new bills having to do
with Pilgrim to be filed by the end
of January. Once filed, PLAC will work with
Massachusestts legislators in an effort to get these bills passed and signed into law.
