PODCAST: Horner on upstate bailout for nuclear power plants
Last Updated by
This week on the program we focus on the decision to close the Indian Point nuclear power plant and how it will affect the Village of Buchanan and northern Westchester County. On this podcast, however, we focus our attention upstate.
Blair Horner of NYPIRG discusses their latest report on the impact of the $7.6 billion bailout for three nuclear power plants near Lake Ontario and the lack of transparency by the Cuomo administration since. The longtime good-government advocate also recalls the surreal events around the Capitol nine years ago when Governor Eliot Spitzer was caught on a federal wiretap arranging to meet a high-priced prostitute and why NYPIRG's work is never done.
