Building Vermont's Economy

We can’t depend only on Washington and the federal stimulus package to see our way through this recession. Vermont is going to see its way through this storm. We will do that by working together creating jobs in the short-term, and building our infrastructure for long-term growth.

I've also been working on an economic development omnibus bill with my committee that creates new ways to strengthen our economy, along with investments in low-income entrepreneurs, renewed investment in the green economy, and strategies on how Vermont can get the most out of President Obama's Federal Stimulus Program.

Today, we passed a tentative bill out of our committee, knowing that much more work is needed before final passage.

One thing that would be good for the GM state would be to pass licensure legislation for Landscape Architects. We are the only state remaining that has no licensure for LA's. UVM is in the exploratory stages of considering an LA graduate program, but we would have very little to offer graduates to remain in State. There is currently legislation circulating the house and senate to enact licensure for LA's - please support us!
