Legislators want radiation rule rewritten
Vermont lawmakers want the state Department of Health to rewrite a rule on how radiation from Vermont Yankee is measured.
And the special legislative panel wants the public to have a chance to comment on it.
Opponents of the nuclear plant say the Health Department reinterpreted a rule on how it calculates radiation releases, allowing radiation at the edge of the plant's property to exceed state limits.
On Wednesday a special legislative panel voted unanimously to declare part of the rule was unclear.
Lawmakers say changes made to the rule never went through a formal rule-making process.
Health Commissioner Wendy Davis plans to review the committee's findings.
