Group wants Vermont Legislature to reform state's alimony law

Posted on February 15, 2016 |
By Mike Faher of Vt. Digger



BRATTLEBORO — In 2011, after years of work, the Massachusetts Legislature approved a major overhaul of the state’s alimony law. There was not a single dissenting vote, “and it’s very rare that happens,” said Steve Hitner, the man who led the effort.

Now, a group led by Brattleboro businessman Rick Fleming is attempting to use that model to revamp the Vermont law that regulates — or, the group contends, fails to regulate — the ways in which men and women are ordered to compensate their ex-spouses.

The fix is meant to accommodate an unforeseen increase in health care costs and it has the support of Speaker of the House Shap Smith.

Posted on January 11, 2016 |
By Anne Galloway VTDigger.org



MONTPELIER — Gov. Peter Shumlin gave his sixth and final State of the State address to the Vermont Legislature on Thursday.

The uncharacteristically lengthy speech was a victory lap through memory lane, with a listing of accomplishments that lasted more than an hour. In the past, Shumlin, who has difficulty delivering long speeches because of his dyslexia, has kept his addresses short. This time, however, the governor spared no detail and appeared to be determined to defend his three terms in office.
