    Extended session

    costs taxpayers

    The news today has been full of information on whether the Vermont Legislature would adjourn on time. They have now informed Vermonters that they will have to extend the session into next week because they were not able to finish this year’s business. Perhaps if they had not wasted so much time discussing whether kale should be the Vermont vegetable, they would have finished on time. Now, Vermont taxpayers will be paying additional salaries so that the more important issues can be dealt with.
