Electric utility regulation; approval of generation facilities. Requires the State Corporation Commission, in its consideration of an application for approval of an electrical generation facility, to consider environmental effects not expressly governed by a permit or expressly considered by a permitting authority, including carbon emissions and the overall impacts of new and existing facilities on the health and welfare of the residents of the Commonwealth. The measure also removes provisions that prohibited the Commission from imposing additional conditions with respect to such matters. Read the Bill »
