Here in Vermont, we enjoy incredible access to our legislative leaders! Community members, business leaders, and a group of Burlington High School students took advantage of this fact at the 2013 March Legislative Breakfast. For the final installment of this year’s series, we invited Lieutenant Governor Phil Scott, Senate President Pro-Tem John Campbell, Speaker Shap Smith, and Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger to join us. They updated us on this year's must-pass legislation and answered questions on a range of issues.
Topics of discussion included: what to expect when the state health care exchange takes effect, Vermont and Burlington’s plans for economic development and the retention of a population of young professionals, plans for educational improvement, and projected budgeting on the state and local levels.
Watch the video to hear the panel answer questions on these and other topics, and please join us at our next Legislative Breakfast in 2014!
