Vermont State HouseA few noteworthy highlights from the first week:

A moving resolution was read proclaiming January 8th as Homelessness Awareness Day. The resolution contained powerful statements about the impact of homelessness on children.

I was pleased to hear Speaker Smith recognize education funding and property taxes as a priority and directing the new education committee to work on this issue.

I was also happy to hear the Governor address clean water and alternative energy as priorities in his speech, as both issues are so important to my district.
