Speaker of the House Shap Smith is our guest on the next Vermont Edition. We look at some of the thorny budget questions that the sequester is causing for lawmakers, and the taxes that might be raised to support the state's spending plan.

Also in the program, New Hampshire's Town Meeting Day. We talk with John Gregg of the Valley News about key votes in on the New Hampshire side of the Connecticut River.

And we read from your messages to the program.
