Stay informed, connected, and engaged—three things.

State House Progress Continues on Key Priorities – Thank Your Legislators! 

Over the past few weeks, there has been exciting progress on many of our priority bills for this legislative session – safeguarding our natural resources, building needed housing, protecting watersheds to build climate resilience and mitigate flooding, moving toward 100% clean energy, pollinator health, and making Big Oil pay their share of the climate crisis in Vermont. Lawmakers in the State House have made their commitment to our environment and communities abundantly clear.

As work on all of these bills continues post-crossover, see how your legislators voted on each using the links below. Then, you can click their names to find contact information and thank them if they supported these important priorities!
