Legislative Preview: Vermont Senate

Toby Talbot
Sen. John Campbell is the president pro tempore of the Vermont Senate.

Vermont lawmakers return to Montpelier right after the New Year with a raft of issues that need to be addressed. Our guest is John Campbell, the leader of the Vermont Senate, to discuss Medicaid budget shortfalls, school consolidation, and the prospects for marijuana legalization, among other issues.

Also in the program, Seven Days reporter Paul Heintz assesses how candidates for Vermont governor are addressing gun policy, and how members of the state Senate are handling the criminal allegations against Franklin County Senator Norm McAllister.
