Two Vermont legislative committees are set to review the state's policies for siting new energy projects.
The Senate and House Natural Resources and Energy committees have scheduled a joint session today to hear from a specially created energy siting commission.
That panel has been studying how Vermont reviews and approves projects like wind turbines, biomass-fired power plants and similar projects.
Gov. Peter Shumlin pushed for creation of the panel following criticisms of state decisions on permitting the Kingdom Community Wind project and similar developments.
