MONTPELIER — The state Legislature emerged from a marathon special session on Thursday with an amended version of a renewable energy siting bill that had been vetoed by Gov. Peter Shumlin on June 6.

The governor said on Friday that he would sign the bill, known as S.260, designed to give more local control over the siting of solar projects to communities that develop energy plans that are consistent with the state’s long-term renewable energy goals.

Legislature to meet Thursday to rework solar siting bill

MONTPELIER — The Vermont General Assembly will meet on Thursday, June 9, to address Gov. Peter Shumlin’s recent veto of S.230, also known as the solar siting bill.

Shumlin vetoed the bill on Monday. The law was designed to give greater say in the siting of solar projects to communities that draft energy plans that are compatible with the state’s renewable energy goals. Some town officials have expressed frustration at the current system, which gives the three-member Vermont Public Service Board broad powers in the permitting of renewable energy projects.

Leave fawns alone for their safety

MONTPELIER — The Vermont Fish &Wildlife Department says deer fawns are being born this time of year and asks that people avoid disturbing or picking them up.

Most deer fawns are born in late May and the first and second weeks of June, according to Vermont deer biologist Nick Fortin.

Fortin says it is best to keep your distance because the fawn’s mother is almost always nearby. When people see a small fawn alone, they often mistakenly assume it is helpless, lost or needing to be rescued.
