Nearly a month after state officials declined an invitation by legislators to address concerns over a state clean energy program which would offer substantial subsidies to four upstate nuclear plants, Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz and fellow lawmakers were given a chance on Monday, May 1 to question the Public Service Commission on the proposal, address issues of transparency and the potential impacts for downstate ratepayers.

Dinowitz has frequently criticized the proposal explaining that the costs estimated at as much as $7.6 billion over its 12-year lifespan, would disproportionately fall on downstate ratepayers.
