About three dozen first-time lawmakers served in the Legislature this winter. On the next Vermont Edition, we invite them to reflect their satisfactions, disappointments and how they felt they served their constituents. Also, an update on a decades-old superfund site in Burlington.
We talk with House Majority Leader Floyd Nease and House Minority Leader Patti Komline about what priorities they’ve set for the second half of the session, and what they hope to realistically accomplish.
Each lawmaker brings his or her own perspective to the work of the Legislature, and we talk with two of them with unique backgrounds – 22 year old Rep. Kesha Ram of Burlington, and Sen. Bill Doyle, whose served Washington County for 40 years. Also, how a bill becoems a law, and we learn some of the history of the Statehouse building.
