Last week the House passed a bill which would
require all new construction within 250 feet of a lake shoreline to get a
permit. Opponents say the bill imposes a burden on small landowners. Some
environmentalists say the bill doesn’t go far enough.

We’ll discuss the pros and cons of
lake-shore development restrictions with David Deen, chair of the House Fish and Wildlife Committee, Robert Helm, Representative from Fairhaven, and Kim Greenwood, water program director for the Vermont Natural
Resources Council.

Also on the program, the Vermont Republicans have hired a new political director. We’ll talk to Brent Burns about what he expects from his new job.
