Legislative Priorities

In January when the Legislature convened, we talked
with leading lawmakers from Vermont’s three major political parties about
their hopes and expectations for the 2008 session. House Progressive Caucus
leader Chris Pearson of Burlington, Senate Republican Whip Kevin Mullin from
Rutland, and Democratic Senate Majority
Leader John Campbell of Windsor County were our guests on that show. They spoke
about their expectations and priorities for the session – energy, health care,
property tax reform and better tri-partisan
cooperation. Today we check back in to see what worked out, what didn’t, and
where we are now. (Listen)

Also on the program, Burlington Free Press reporter
Candace Page talks about Citizen Science – how volunteers are helping scientists collect
the information they need to understand and protect our natural environment. (Listen)

And we begin a new series, titled My Vermont:
essays by VPR listeners on the values, joys and challenges of life in the Green
Mountain State. (Listen)
