Reports: PSEG, Christie Administration Collaborated on Nuclear Rescue Bill

Last Edited:

New records reveal that lobbyists with New Jersey's biggest utility, PSEG, worked with former Governor Chris Christie's administration to help craft the new $300 million nuclear rescue bill.

According to records obtained by the Associated Press, Public Service Enterprise Group, proposed adding more stringent confidentiality language to the legislature, which is set to be voted on in the State Senate committee, on Thursday, January 25th.

Their proposal has received harsh criticism from the bill's opponents, but PSEG argues that publicizing the company's financial records would reveal ownership records and put the plant at a disadvantage in the competitive market.

Without the bill, PSEG says they will be in danger of going broke and closing down in as early as two years.
