Posted on October 15, 2014 |
By Melanie Peyser



The Public Service Board will decide this week whether to reconsider the benefits of Phase I of the fracked gas pipeline in light of the $35 million (41 percent) cost overrun.

Opinion: Shumlin minces words on fuel

Posted on September 17, 2014 |
By Stanley Grzyb



Gov. Shumlin, you have been a vocal proponent of the Gaz Métro Vermont Gas Phase II proposal, which will carry fracked gas from Alberta, Canada, through Addison County to the Ticonderoga, N.Y., International Paper mill.
