Legislature Approves Several VNRC Priorities
If you like clean water, want a modern energy system, and you care about Vermont’s forests, you should be very pleased with this year’s legislative results. This year featured the passage of a sweeping water cleanup bill, a measure to support more renewable energy and energy efficiency and legislation designed to support forests and farmland. “Overall, it was a very productive session from our perspective,” said Brian Shupe, VNRC’s executive director. “We are pleased. Lawmakers made solid gains in a variety of areas and we look forward to working with other organizations, state officials and others to follow up, and implement these important initiatives.” Please stay tuned for further updates.
