    Staff Report

    MONTPELIER — Rep. Tess Taylor, a Democrat from Barre, is leaving the Legislature to become a paid advocate pushing for the implementation of a state universal health care plan.

    Taylor resigned Friday, a day after being named the executive director of Vermont’s Coalition for Universal Reform, or CURE.

    Taylor was in her third term in the House. For the last year and a half, she had served as the Democratic whip.

    CURE has retained a top Montpelier lobbying firm and will be permitted to run what are known as issue-advocacy campaigns around election season.

    House Democrats are expected to hold an election this week to fill Taylor’s leadership position.
