House Advances Racial Justice Package

House Speaker Mitzi Johnson (D-South Hero) commented, “systemic racism stacks the rules and expectations of our society against Black, Indigenous and People of Color. In order to build a truly just and equitable society, we must be committed to breaking down structural racism. It is incumbent upon all of us to recognize it, name it, fight it, and right the centuries of wrong. People of all races, genders, and identities should feel welcome and at home in Vermont, yet in order for this to be true, there is work to be done.”

House Overrides Governor’s Veto of Key Climate Change Legislation

The climate crisis is upon us and will not wait until we are ready. We need a plan for our state and a government that is accountable to that plan. Vermonters demand it, and our future generations depend upon it. We heard from Vermonters loud and clear that climate change is a top priority. This bill is critical to setting our state on the path to a strong future. I’m proud of the action the House took to override the Governor’s veto of this bill today, and I look forward to seeing this bill become law after action in the Senate.
