ACTION ALERT: Tell VT Legislature to stay on track toward universal healthcare
By passing S.252 last Friday, the Vermont Senate has taken steps which could chip away at our universal healthcare law, Act 48, while the president of the Senate questioned whether we’ll even make it to Green Mountain Care.
Vermont law requires our new public healthcare system, Green Mountain Care (GMC), to be equitably financed, with sufficient funds to meet population health needs, and to provide comprehensive care to all.

The CCTA Board of Commissioners would like to hear from us. We need everyone to come out and tell them which side you're on. Join us Monday morning to call out CCTA management for its violations of public safety and workers' rights. They have held our community hostage by playing games with our striking drivers.
This year's Vermont Legislative session has become a debate about raising up the standards for workers in this state. The good news on paid sick days a broad coalition has taken this issue in the last year from the back burner to the center stage of political debate. However, in many ways national politics around minimum wage and our Governor have created an atmosphere where the focus in the legislature has turned to raising the minimum wage this year and pushing off the paid sick days to next year.
