Benefit Ban, Reach-up Time Limit Get Review

Print More

Two of Gov. Peter Shumlin’s more high-profile recent proposals are up for committee discussion in the Vermont House.

This morning and afternoon, the House Judiciary Committee will take testimony on a plan to bar public employees convicted of financial crimes from having those crimes pad their pensions.

That push follows charges last year against former Vermont State Police Sergeant James Deeghan, who was accused of inflating his pay by filing false overtime reports.

This afternoon, the House Human Services Committee takes testimony on Shumlin’s plan to put new time limits on how long someone can stay on the state’s welfare-to-work Reach-Up program.
