BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) — A state panel reviewing the planned decommissioning of the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant is set to meet following the announcement of a plan to sell the closed reactor.

The Nuclear Decommissioning Citizens Advisory Panel postponed its meeting to Thursday. It will be from 6 to 9 p.m. at Brattleboro Area Middle School.

Tony Leshinskie ("le-SHIN-skee"), nuclear engineer with the Vermont Public Service Department, has said Dec. 1 was the soonest executives from both current plant owner Entergy Corp. and proposed buyer NorthStar Group Services Inc., could attend.

He says it was decided to get those executives to the meeting to answer questions about the sale.
