Re: “Lawmakers Brace for Possible Veto of Energy Bill

What took this bill so long to get to the Governor's office? The Vermont legislative tracking system shows this bill was passed on the last day of the session, May 6, and yet, it wasn't delivered to the Governor's office until June 1...

And, as it was "officially" delivered on June 1, following Vermont's "five day rule", today (June 6) would be the final day for the Governor to act on the bill (sign or veto), or it becomes law.

Re: “Lawmakers Brace for Possible Veto of Energy Bill

The bill's progress on Vermont's Legislative Tracking tool is very confusing.


As of May 6, 2016, the 123 entries logged in the "detailed status" of S.230 clearly show that the bill was "a source of contention right up through the final hours of the legislative session earlier this month". However, it doesn't display when the bill was completed and sent to the Governor for consideration. It's my understanding that the Governor has five days to sign, or veto a bill delivered to him, or it becomes law. When did the Governor receive this bill from the legislature, and what's the timeline for his decision?

Re: “Shot in the Dark: Montpelier's Next Gun Battle

Baruth failed to pass anti-gun legislation last session, and he will fail abysmally this session, too. He knows that there's no way Peter Shumlin will sign gun legislation, and yet, he persists. Baruth is tone-deaf and appears to have been co-opted. There's no political or practical reason to continue to push gun legislation in the state of Vermont.
