Vermont Yankee is still dealing with the problem of radioactive water leaking from the plant and concerns that the public was misled about the existence of underground pipes. Next week, the Vermont Senate will hold a key vote on whether to extend the license to operate the nuclear power plant for another 20 years. We hear both sides of the heated debate and preview the upcoming vote with Senate President Peter Shumlin and Rutland Senator Peg Flory.  Listen

Plus, VPR's John Dillon provides analysis of the week's news on Vermont Yankee.  Listen

And we listen back to some of Vermont's Olympic voices in the news this week. Listen
