VT Bill Tracking

As part of our legislative advocacy, Rural Vermont tracks all bills in the State House that would affect the lives of farmers and the dinner tables of eaters.

Some of these are bills we support, some we have concerns about, and some we have no position on. Where possible, links are provided to the legislative bill tracking system, where the text of the bills can be read and their progress through the Statehouse followed.
