Well our goal was to be finished with the 2019 legislative session on May 18th. As we all know sometimes deadlines must be pushed out. Although only the budget and revenue bills must pass prior to adjournment there are still several priority initiatives we are hoping to finalize this week. Below is a recap of the legislative session thus far:
55 bills have been passed by both the House and Senate while 26 of those bills have been enacted into law.
Bills enacted into law include (but not limited to):
Bills awaiting the Governor’s action include (but not limited to):
Bills yet to be resolved between House and Senate include (but not limited to):
Fortunately this is year one of the biennium so unresolved bills will carry forth to next year.
I’m happy to talk further about any of the bills listed here and those not listed. I can always be reached at email@example.com or 373-0599. June 1st is the next Essex/Westford community conversation from 8:30am to 10:00am at The Nest Café located on Main St in the Village.
The time we spend in Montpelier is productive and important, but so is spending time in the community. I look forward to adjourning this week and seeing everyone around the Village. Please don’t ever hesitate to stop me in the street, at the grocery store or anywhere else – I’m always happy to chat. Thank you for the continued opportunity to serve Essex Junction!
