Ind. Gov't. - More on "Lawmakers could leave key decisions about the future of the $2.6 billion Rockport coal-to-gas plant in the hands of the Indiana Supreme Court"

Updating this ILB post from this morning, Chris Sikich's story this afternoon in the IndyStar is headed "Senate committee rejects new Rockport ratepayer safeguards." It begins:

The Indiana Senate Utilities Committee today declined to add ratepayer protections to a controversial $2.8 billion coal gasification plant to be built in Rockport on the banks of the Ohio River in Spencer County.

Now, the full Senate will debate the bill. If the bill passes the Senate as written, ratepayers throughout Indiana would have to make up financial loses by the plant.
