Sanders: Another Budget Is Possible

Bernie Sanders is runnning for his third term in the U.S. Senate.
Toby Talbot
Senator Bernie Sanders

A small group of House and Senate leaders are trying to hash out a budget compromise deal that both Republicans and Democrats can agree to before the next government shutdown battle looms. Vermont’s Bernie Sanders is on that committee and last week he released his own vision of what a progressive budget should look like. 

We’ll talk to Senator Sanders Tuesday November 19th at Noon and 7pm about his budget and the negotiations in Washington. Leave your comments below or send your questions for Senator Sanders to vermontedition@vpr.net.

We'll also learn about the initial results of the state's Total Energy Study, which was required by the legislature in order to identify the best technology mix to get to Vermont's renewable energy and greenhouse gas goals. We'll talk to Dr. Asa Hopkins, the director of energy policy and planning for the Public Service Department.
