Vermont General Assembly Adjourns Sine Die
The Vermont General Assembly adjourned sine die on May 29.
During the session the Legislature introduced a bill changing lobbying reporting dates from the 15th to the 3rd of the month.
Lawmakers also introduced Senate Bill 157, proposing to grant the ethics commission authority to adopt an enforceable code of ethics, adjudicate complaints, and impose penalties upon finding a violation.
Both bills will carryover to 2020 as they failed to pass this legislative session.
