Today Senator John Fonfara (D-Hartford), Senate Chair of the Energy & Technology Committee, issued the following statement in response to Governor Malloy’s announcement of a merger deal between Northeast Utilities / NSTAR and the State of Connecticut.
“I appreciate and would like to thank Governor Malloy and Attorney General Jepsen for their hard work on this arrangement. The details available look quite promising, and I am encouraged to see the outline of a package that compares fairly to the arrangement reached between the utilities and the State of Massachusetts. We will continue to analyze what has been negotiated further in the days ahead, and for the time being, legislation concerning this merger now before the Energy & Technology Committee will continue to move forward,” said Senator Fonfara.
