March 1st Town Meeting Day - Highlights
The office of Gov. Jim Douglas announced that he will let S.88 become law without his signature. He expressed disapproval of the designs mandate and the prescription drug samples disclosure provision added by the House. However, he decided to let the bill become law because it include the "Blueprint For Health" plans that he has supported. This is another big step forward for our campaign! Read the press release.
The Vermont Senate had not yet received VT S. 88 as of 8 PM Thursday, but members of the House and Senate were working away trying to finish work in time to adjourn the session by Saturday evening.
