2019 Final Legislative Update Home

DRM's Government & Public Affairs Team Final Analysis

The legislature limped to an odd ending this session, as the House adjourned on May 24th and the Senate delayed adjournment until May 29th, still hopeful that the House would come back to pass the Minimum Wage and Paid Family Leave bills. The legislature failed to set a date for a veto session. The Vermont General Assembly will reconvene on Jan. 7, 2020, for the second half of the 75th biennial session and will address any potential bill veto’s from Gov. Phil Scott then.

Provided below are links to summaries of the individual bills and issues followed during this past session by the DRM Government and Public Affairs team.
