Wonders if Canby would end up with a share.

125

132

Sen. Ferrioli

Explains the citizens of Portland may acquire Portland General Electric (PGE). Believes the shareholders of PGE are wholly and completely responsible for the costs associated with decommissioning and maintaining Trojan. Asks if that is correct.

139

Henry

Replies if the plant is no longer used and useful.

140

Sen. Ferrioli

Notes the core has been removed, but all the fissionable materials are still stored on the site. Verifies the materials will be stored on that site indefinitely.

142

Henry

Replies they do not know. Explains that is one of the reasons for HB 3479.

143

Sen. Ferrioli

States there has been no national repository approved for the storage of nuclear waste. Explains that until a national repository is approved, the fissionable materials are sequestered at the site. Asks if witness knows what the half-life is for the fissionable materials.

147

Henry

Replies no.

148

Sen. Ferrioli

States it is 250,000 years for the first half-life and it takes 20 half-lives to take fissionable material to inert so it is no longer harmful to human health. Wonders what share of the liability for the Trojan nuclear waste repository the city of Portland will have if the city purchases PGE.

153

Henry

Replies 67.5 percent. Explains the decommissioning fund was built up when the plant was used and useful so there were rates coming from customers of PGE that benefited from the production of power at that time.

158

Sen. Ferrioli

Verifies there is a reserve.

159

Henry

Replies yes. Explains it wouldn’t matter who purchases PGE. Adds the only exception would be if the stock was distributed, in which case there would be no change in administration and this would not be an issue.

162

Sen. Ferrioli

Points out the important distinction is that if the city of Portland purchases PGE, there will be another group of people that will be obligated to pay. Wonders who pays if the ratepayers fail in their duty to pay.

165

Henry

Explains a failsafe incorporated in the bill is that the rates can be increased to ensure that they do pay.

166

Sen. Ferrioli

Verifies that if the city of Portland purchases PGE they would be obligating the taxpayers if there was a default by the company. Verifies the city of Portland would own PGE.

172

Chair Brown

Replies the city of Portland would be financially responsible.

173

Sen. Ferrioli

Discusses the possibility and outcomes of people of Portland owning and being responsible for a nuclear waste repository.

184

Henry

Believes Portland will transfer the bonds and the responsibility for the utility to a regional authority. Explains the result of this negotiation.

191

Sen. Ferrioli

Understands the wisdom of spreading the liability over the largest pool of people. Points out that currently a private sector group of stockholders is wholly responsible, but after the purchase, taxpayers will be responsible.

196

Henry

States the Federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission will have something to say about the transfer of the license. Explains that concluding who is wholly responsible at this point in time is premature. Explains HB 3479 is a failsafe for the city of Eugene.

199

Chair Brown

Remarks Sen. Ferrioli should come to Portland to discuss his concerns.

205

Sen. Ferrioli

States he supports HB 3479, but hopes the citizens of Portland understand the liability that comes along with owning a portion of PGE.

212

Chair Brown

Makes comment.

215

Sen. Ringo

Wants to understand this issue a little better. Verifies witness is saying that currently it is not clear who owns the liability.

221

Henry

Replies no. Provides a hypothetical scenario.

229

Sen. Ringo

Verifies the current owners of PGE are the creditors. Explains that when a corporation is purchased, both the assets and liabilities are purchased together. Wonders when they acquired shares of PGE if they also acquired shares of the obligation which may include cleaning up.

240

Henry

Replies yes. States there has been talk of only purchasing the assets. States that is not likely to happen.

242

Sen. Ringo

Verifies that currently nobody owns PGE assets that do not also own liability.

249

Henry

Confirms this.

130
