    BRATTLEBORO — Two groups critical of the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant want state regulators to consider the financial condition of plant owner Entergy Corp. as they prepare to decide whether to give the plant a new state permit.

    The New England Coalition and the Vermont Public Interest Research Group point to recent news of declining earnings at Louisiana-based Entergy and layoffs of workers, including at Vermont Yankee.

    The Vermont Public Service Board is expected to rule this fall on whether to grant Vermont Yankee a state permit to operate through 2032. The plant got a 20-year extension of its federal license from the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

    The groups are asking the board to order Entergy to turn over any documents related to further staff reductions at Vermont Yankee.
