A group representing power plants all over New England has asked regulators to weigh in whether Northern Pass is receiving inappropriate subsidies from Public Service of New Hampshire.
At issue is what’s the definition of a “competitive affiliate.” These are companies that the utility owns, and which provide similar services.

The University System trustees have unanimously agreed to freeze tuition for two more years at the state’s public colleges, so long as lawmakers restore the University system’s budget to 2009 levels. That would mean an increase of $16 million dollars from fiscal year 2015 to fiscal Year 2016.
Board chair Pamela Diamantis says these two additional years of budget reductions would allow the class of 2017 to graduate without a single tuition increase, "and I think that’s just a great testament to trying to drive affordability."
