Gov. Scott: State complies as a 'sanctuary site'

Posted on November 22, 2017 |
By Mark Johnson of VTDigger.org



MONTPELIER — Gov. Phil Scott insisted on Thursday that Vermont is in compliance with federal laws and asserted the U.S. attorney general “had not done his homework” before including the state on a list of so-called sanctuary sites threatened with the loss of federal funds.

“We believe we’re on safe ground,” Scott said.

The governor said the state law that triggered a warning letter from the U.S. Justice Department had been legally reviewed and found not to be in conflict with federal rules.

By Mike Polhamus of VTDigger.org



VERMONT — A legislative panel wants to hear the agriculture agency’s case for why farmers should be exempt from environmental enforcement under Vermont’s land use law.

The Act 250 committee, which met Nov. 15, is tasked with proposing fixes to the state’s land use law that will bring 50-year-old regulations up to speed with new environmental pressures.

At the next meeting to be held next month, the committee will ask the Agency of Agriculture to justify land use exemptions for farms.

The Outside Story: Roadkill — a reflection on the hows and whys

Posted on November 20, 2017 |
By Brett Amy Thelen



n Outside Story_Moose_in_Road.jpg

Every so often, my friend David texts me a picture of roadkill. A fisher trailing a single strand of blood-red sinew. A wind-roused pile of porcupine quills. A bobcat in graceful, permanent repose. One year, he built extra time into his schedule so he could stop to document every carcass on his daily commute — 40 critters in all, not including salamanders, snakes, and myriad other wildlife too small to be seen from a moving vehicle.
