Rally at State House re: Burrillville Power Plant

Today (Thursday, 5/26) there will be a rally at the State House in Providence followed by a hearing on bill that would give the residents of Burrillville the power to reject any tax agreement agreed to between the town and Invenergy, the company proposing a natural-gas-fueled power plant in Burrillville. The bill would also make several fundamental changes to the EFSB. If this bill passes and becomes law, it could be an end to the power plant. You can read more about the bill here.

You can read the bill in its entirety here.

I don’t know enough about taxes or about the Energy Facilities Siting Board to know what the other repercussions of this bill might be down the road, but that is also worth investigating.
