Vermont Legislative 2023 Update: Week 17
There is a lot of confidence in a May 12th adjournment date, however, you don’t see the expected corresponding hustle in the State House to meet that date. Things feel like they are going at a casual pace. Additionally, this week brought new business to the legislative session as Governor Scott made good on his promise to veto the clean heat standard, and Speaker Krowinski announced the beginning of impeachment proceedings for the Franklin County State’s Attorney. That said, even if it is not in the public eye, we know that the Committee chairs are working their way toward closing the gaps between the House and the Senate. A quick note: we will not be posting an update on Friday, May 12th, the day the legislature has planned to adjourn. Expect an update soon after adjournment summarizing the session.
