The Legislature gets back to business in Montpelier next week and it has a long list of issues to address. Lawmakers will have to draft a state budget for next year without knowing the full impact of the federal sequestration cuts, as well as vet several tax plans, including the gas tax, a tax on soda and a tax onbreak-open tickets.

Burlington Free-Press Reporter Terri Hallenbeck, Dave Gram of the Associated Press and VPR's Ross Sneyd look at these topics as well as the future of efforts to regulate wind projects and an end-of-life bill.
