Fri 5/10/13 at Noon & 7PM The legislative session is in its final days and the fate of a number of bills will be decided soon. On the next Vermont Edition, our guest is House Speaker Shap Smith. We discuss the latest on a budget plan that would lower taxes for many people, marijuana decriminalization and legislation to restrain education spending.

Also, VPR's John Dillon recaps the strange twists and turns taken by a bill that supporters had hoped would  allow what they call "death with dignity" and what opponents call "physician assisted suicide."
